Q: What are the main advantages of being a team captain?
A: There aren’t really many advantages, it’s a lot of responsibility. We are in charge of making sure everyone on the team is passing, we each have a teammate we mentor and check grades for. We also have to help our coach figure out what to do if something isn’t going right on the team. The only advantages are knowing you’re a leader, and the food our coach gets us during captain’s meetings.
