Young athletes go through a number of transitions in sports. They may transition from playing in high school to playing in college or community college. They may transition from college to Division 1, 2 or 3. They may be headed for college ball but get injured as seniors in high school, crushing their dreams of playing.
They’re rarely prepared for these transitions–and that affects their mental game, says Justin Lott, CEO and founder of VarCity, a social community for athletes. He explains how sports parents and coaches can help sports kids cope with these transitions, some of which can be devastating.
