"Success in competition often is viewed as winning, but it can also be evaluated in terms of enjoyment, self-improvement, satisfaction, or self-confidence that players derive from the experience. Thus, while winning certainly is more exhilarating than losing, the players (as well as the coach) may find other rewards in competition." 

- Walt Chyzowych former US National Team Coach, National Team Member, and Olympic Coach.
