Helping Kids Move On

Coaching tips of the day

Coaches must be psychologists too, continually helping kids get over disappointments. These words of encouragement are necessary more than ever in today’s youth sports world because kids are under more stress as athletes than ever before with the demands to win and be stars.

Here are some of my most used statements.

✧ Don’t worry about the results, just stay focused on the task.

✧ “Remember the good and forget the bad or this game will kill you.” (Kill just a figure of speech of course.)

✧ “You can do it and do not let anyone tell you that you can’t.”

✧ You are one play away from putting it all together.”

✧ “You may have failed the previous time, but it does not mean you will the next time.”

✧ “‘How you do’ and ‘who you are’, are two different things.”
