Today i watched the movie coach carter, not the first time i have seen it, but i do love this film, it has some great leadership lessons and also some great basketball leadership is not a popularity contest.
In the film, coach carter demonstrated values such as liberty, equality, and justice when he allowed the players on his team the liberty to choose to play, to choose to achieve, to choose to sign the contract of behavior. Coach carter, though a man of tremendous character, didn’t give any indication of having a relationship with christ or encouraging his players to think or value anything involving eternal rewards i walked away from the movie thinking that this was a good movie to watch loaded with valuable life lessons, but something major was missing.
Coach carter believes that his players are student athletes, with the emphasis on student first so when his students fail to meet the academic levels they have agreed to, he cancels basketball practice and games until they meet the required level. Coach carter also adopted a moral style of leadership he made his team respect others, not using inappropriate words and try to make change towards what was good and right so that the students will have a future coach carter is also a change leader.

What is your deepest fear this is the question ken carter often asks his players the question that irritates most of the proud players at the climax of the story, when gym’s lockout was ended, ken carter found the players studying at the basketball court here, timo cruz answered the question their often asks them. Coach carter is one of my all time favorite movies while older coaches will remember re-watching some of the classics like ‘hoosiers’ and ‘glory road’ hundreds of times, it seems the new generation of players have taken a hold on coach carter and aren’t letting go. However, carter doesn't give in and stays strong with his decision although the players might not have enjoyed this decision at that time, it did teach them a long term lesson of having good morals obviously coach carter cared enough about his players to realize that academics are more important than playing a sport.
