Mental Training Programs For Young Athletes

Mental Training Programs For Young Athletes

What’s the Best Program for My Young Athlete?

A sports mom asks:

“I just wanted to know what the best program is for a 11 (almost 12) year old. I have a 12-year-old with confidence issues.”

We often receive emails with these types of questions.

Here at the Ultimate Sports Parent and Kids’ Sports Psychology, we offer a number of programs, all of which boost kids’ confidence, focus, and overall mental toughness in sports.

The number one reason your athletes need help with their mental game is when they under perform in games–when they can’t perform freely or with confidence in competition.

Others top reasons parents contact us include the following. When their athletes:

  • Lose confidence
  • Get frustrated easily
  • Play too safe in games
  • Worry too much about what others think
  • Have fear of failure
  • Are perfectionists
  • Can’t focus well in games

Here are the top solutions we have for young athletes and parents to deal with these challenges…
