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!
