Why Kids Don’t Embrace the Mental Game

College Recruitment for Young Athletes

Helping Young Athlete Embrace Mental Training

How do you help kids understand the value of mental toughness in sports

Other sports parents and coaches want to know how to introduce young athletes to mental game training.

Do your kids think sports psychology is only for “head cases?”

Are your athletes afraid that teammates will make fun of them for doing mental training?

My top challenge as a sports psychology professional is helping athletes understand the real value of sports psychology.

And to debunk the myths that athletes buy into about sports psychology

I think a lack of understanding about sports psychology is the number one barrier that prevents athletes from embracing mental training!

In fact, 53% of mental game coaches I surveyed reported that athletes resist mental training because they don’t understand how it can help them!

At the Ultimate Sports Parent, I receive many questions from sports parents such as:

“How do I get my son to want to improve his mental game and his attitude?”

The answer is not easy because young athletes resist what they don’t understand.

The public thinks sports psychology is all about slump-busting. I have to admit, many of my students hire me for this reason.

But the real value in mental training is to help athletes realize their full physical potential–even athletes who are performing well.
