Over her tenure, she created the Choice Not Chance (CNC) philosophy, training kids how to think and focus on making the correct choices in life. She imparted her passionate philosophy to all of her players and now brings it to her efforts as head coach at Duke. Choice Not Chancehighlights McCallie's lessons for building a fierce competitor, such as Going against the grain, Never become satisfied, and Enjoy the prospect of getting better daily. The CNC philosophy is widely used by McCallie, her staff, and players, who are very active in the community speaking about CNC. * Joanne P.
