Young Athletes Who Suffer From Pregame Jitters Podcast

Pregame Jitters in Young Athletes

Ultimate Sports Parent Podcast

Do your kids interpret pregame jitters as something is wrong with them before they compete?

Often, the pregame jitters can help kids focus better and boost their energy just before a game.

However, those butterflies and sweaty palms are more than just jitters; they’re actually performance anxiety.

In this podcast interview with mental game expert Dr. Patrick Cohn, we look at the benefits of the jitters—and how to identify whether a young athlete is dealing with more than just the jitters, but fear of failure.

The podcast introduces one of the challenges we address in our upcoming program, “10-Minute Pregame Prep.”
