Strengths:

  • Listens before talking
  • Tries hard to avoid a mistake
  • Respects the coach & mentors

Weaknesses:

  • Difficulty with criticism
  • Has trouble dealing with team conflict
  • Will not open up and say what’s bothering them

Coaching Tip:

To coach this type, be authentic, be yourself. Try to see this type as a unique individual and treat these athletes in a friendly manner if that fits you.

Athlete Tip:

The Knight type cares deeply about following the rules, but he or she should try not to worry about all the technicalities. There is a good chance the Knight does not want to be everyone’s friend on his team, nevertheless should work on being a good teammate to all. They should allow themselves some privacy when needed and at least a few minutes alone each day to reflect or unwind.

Parent/Mentor Tip:

This type sees things as cut and dried, black and white. Help him deal with those gray areas of life.

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

  • Most find it interesting and fun to learn their Athlete Type™ and share it with others
