10 Mar 3️⃣ Sports Psychology Tips for Developing Confident ChildrenTip 🥇: Lower ExpectationsAthletes who have high levels of self-confidence end up excelling. Parents' and coaches' overly high expectations can cause athletes to focus too much on the results, rather than the experience. This often makes them feel frustrated, especially when they are not performing up to their own (and your) standards.Tip 🥈: Watch What You SayIn their sincere effort to be supportive, parents and coaches often say things that kids interpret as expectations. For example, a Softball parent might say – with the very best intentions – to an athlete: "You should go 4-for-4 against this pitcher today." Some athletes may think they need to be perfect and get a hit every time at-bat …if they don't they are letting down their parent or coach.Tip 🥉: Emphasize Process Over ResultsBe careful about the expectations you communicate to your young athletes. We suggest you instead identify more manageable goals or objectives that help children focus on the process. If you as coaches or parents want to help your young athletes achieve their full potential in sports and reap the many benefits, be sure to acquaint yourself with these and many other mental game strategies to improve success.#WordsofWisdom
