Building Resilience through football with the 7 Cs
When you play football, you build aptitudes that will serve different areas of your life–throughout your life. These are called the 7 Cs of Resilience, the core skills that equip you to better deal with adversity, change, and risk. Dr Kenneth Ginsburg developed the concept in 2006, emphasising the importance of the 7 Cs to building inner strength and utilising outside resources. At Electric Ireland, we support girls and women’s football not only because of our love of the game, but because it helps them become more resilient, and ready for the world. Let’s look at each of the 7 Cs of Resilience in turn.
