Dexter Fowler


  • Sets and focuses on goals
  • Pushes self hard
  • Admits faults


  • May be reluctant to change their plan
  • Puts too much pressure on themselves
  • May fail to communicate

Coaching Tip:

Coaching with this type should be direct and sincere. They may see warmth as being phony.

Athlete Tip:

The Ice type’s desire to win/succeed is strong but this places a lot of pressure on him emotionally. He has a hard time being truly satisfied or content. It would be best if he would remember to stop and smell the roses occasionally – try seeing the glass as half full.

Parent/Mentor Tip:

This type tends to bottle up their emotions. Try to get them to open up when something is bothering them and talk it through gently and logically with them.

About the Ice 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
