Benefits of training as a team

Training as a team improves confidence, increases motivation, builds trust within your team and even improves skill levels. 

While many sports teams focus on individual training and can sometimes lose sight of the value of team training, training as a team can develop skills that young athletes can use in everyday life. 

Here are a few of the many benefits of team training:

Improves motivation

Training in a group helps pump everyone up, as people's energy can rub off on other individuals during the session.

While many athletes are self-motivated, training partners can help you to keep the work up on the days you don't feel like working out. If you ever feel like you can’t do something, there’s nothing like the support from a teammate or friend to help you do the unthinkable. 

Better problem-solving

Many brains are better than one and, in the heat of the moment, utilizing your team members to work through a challenge will encourage communication and collaboration. Those are two skill sets that young athletes can bring into their daily relationships and education. That’s what we call a win-win! 

Goal achievement

Every sports team has goals to achieve during the off-season, pre-season and even mid-season. 

Luckily, working with other athletes and coaches helps you keep track of these goals. You can also monitor your fellow athletes and provide support when they’re struggling to find much-needed motivation. 

Goal tracking also benefits athletes beyond sports because it helps to create long-term thinking skills and the habit of working toward a goal that may be far away, like playing at a higher level or making their way to college. 


Accountability is crucial when it comes to team sports. Individual training is useful, but no one holds you accountable when you miss a training session or fail to achieve your goals.

In a group training session, you are expected to show up to every session and perform each activity at your best level. To avoid being accountable for your team's loss, you will attend all training sessions, making your group competitive. This makes you better in the long run because you and your teammates are pushing to get the best out of each other. 

Improves confidence

A lack of confidence can adversely affect a player's performance on the field as they feel incompetent. Training with a team helps players build their confidence. This is because a team can cheer you up and encourage you to push on even when you have exceeded your limits.

This will give you a chance to rely on your teammates to build you up and eventually you will start to have that confidence in yourself.
