Strengths:

  • Works to please others
  • Optimistic and cooperative
  • Plans ahead

Weaknesses:

  • May not recognize flaws
  • Potential to be self-righteous
  • May be too focused on others

Coaching Tip:

This type expects the coach to set an example of hard work and attention to detail. This type probably likes a coach who is fairly clean cut or traditional.

Athlete Tip:

It is best if the Eagle does not dwell on unfortunate things that may have happened in the past. Better yet, youshould just let them go and be true to their natural optimism. What happened in the past does not equal the future.

Parent/Mentor Tip:

The Eagle type tries hard to please others, especially parents. Remember to fill this type’s emotional tank periodically with praise for doing well, especially for something like following rules or a regimen.

About the Eagle Athlete Type™

Why knowing Athlete Type™ is important

The TAP Athlete Types™

More than 30,000 elite athletes have taken the TAP assessment over the years creating the richest database of this kind on the planet.  A deep statistical analysis of the TAP database based on the actual answers by these elite athletes revealed eight (8) distinct athlete types™ (more than personality), each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and particularly effective coaching techniques to help each type maximize their potential.

The TAP Athlete Types™ are beneficial in a variety of ways

  • Athlete Types™ provide a high level overview of an individual’s mental make-up
  • They introduce a common framework for coaches and athletes to better understand and interact with one another
  • They provide a positive self-identifying image for athletes
  • Most find it interesting and fun to learn their Athlete Type™ and share it with others
