Becoming a Team Player

As John Wooden, UCLA’s iconic coach, once said, “A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player.” Our Athletics program encourages students to pursue leadership through competitive sports. Competitive excellence can drive students to learn at a faster rate, perform at a higher level and bring their best effort — all of which can also be applied to classroom skills and habits.
