This week our virtue theme is COMPOSURE - The strength to be calm and in control of oneself in the midst of pressure. COMPOSURE is necessary for everything in life. We need COMPOSURE-that presence of mind to act rightly and do things well…..on and off the field of play. When we practice the virtue of COMPOSURE we are able to deal with adversity positively and that is a rare ability.
