I failed at this this year as I never gave my players the opportunity to lead.  The first mistake I made was when I allowed the team to vote for captain which lead to the most popular girls becoming the team captains. I had captains but no leaders.
 

The one thing I plan on doing next year is identifying the team leader and then showing her the traits of what a captain has (thanks Lisa) and giving her the tools (Books) and the opportunities that she needs to grow and excel as a leader.  

For me, a captain is more than the player that meets with the referees at the start of the game. They meet the referees and then go back and relay to the team what was said and is vocal both on and off the court.
