It ranges in intensity from nuisance, to extreme distress, to conflict, or even crisis and chaos. Some adversity cannot be controlled such as weather and field conditions. Some adversity is self-imposed such as quick whistles. Some adversity can be managed, contained or minimized such as player or coach behaviour. Some adversity must be dealt with individually and some as a crew. • The most important thing to remember is that it is going to happen. We must accept it, deal with it, and move on.
