Improving Your Brain Game!


Youth basketball season is in full swing.  I am currently coaching 6th grade girls and we spend a lot of time talking about mental focus.  If you have been talking about this same issue with your youth player — check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0CbGFdH1Vs&feature=player_profilepage from my friend and colleague Dr. Dan Gould from Michigan State University.  If you haven’t  discovered the Institute for the Study of Youth Sport at Michigan State University it is an incredible resource http://www.educ.msu.edu/ysi/

Please leave a comment and share your insight and questions regarding the mental side of youth sport!

About rheadmore

I spend my working day at a great higher education institution by the name of Michigan State University. I try to spend a majority of my free time coaching youth sports, baseball and basketball are my favorites. This blog is dedicated to enhancing youth coaching and helping youth become successful and well contributing members of society. This philosophy was passed on to me by my father who always stressed leaving something better then the way you found it. I have been trying to live by those words for most of my adult life. Thanks for checking out my blog.
