Identify and parlay athletic transferable skills! Athletic transferable skills are skills learned in sports that can be transferred to other areas of human development and life experiences. For example, kids who learn through sports how to set goals, manage their schedule, work successfully with teammates, and develop leadership skills need to be specifically encouraged and shown how to use those skills in the classroom, their future careers, and practically every imaginable aspect of life.
