Help Young Athletes Improve Confidence Quickly
And Overcome Common Confidence Killers
That Destroy Motivation And Fun in Sports!

7-Day Program For Sports Parents and Kids Boosts
Young Athletes’ Performance, Happiness and Success
….In Sports And Life!

Dear Parents and Coaches,

Confidence is the Number One trait that determines whether young athletes achieve their potential in sports.

When kids lack confidence, they doubt themselves, stop taking risks, play tentatively, and are hard on themselves. As a result, kids often lose their motivation to improve. Ultimately, these barriers keep them from enjoying sports and making the most of their physical talent.

As sports parents and coaches, you play a critical role in determining whether your young athletes feel confident. What you say, what you do with your hands and body during games or competitions—even how you think about sports—will affect your kids’ confidence.

Here are some of the top confidence killers for young athletes:

  • They hold high expectations (“I need to make four 3-pointers and block five shots in today’s game”).
  • They call themselves negative names (“I’m too skinny to play football”).
  • They tell themselves I can’t… statements (“I can’t score when I play against this team”).
  • They harbor other goofy beliefs (“I only score if I eat granola bars for breakfast or wear a red headband”).
  • They doubt their abilities. (Can I really make that shot?)
  • They worry about what everyone thinks of them. (“Coach is going to bench me if I make a mistake. My friend Sarah is here watching and may not like how I look.”)

Most young athletes struggle with at least some of the above confidence killers.

But here’s the good news… Kids can learn how to overcome these confidence busters and perform with confidence. When they do this, parents and coaches see radical changes in their mindset and performance.

Confident sports kids embrace competition and thrive on it. They aren’t afraid of taking risks. They maintain their confidence even after making mistakes. Their self-talk—what they say to themselves while practicing or performing—is positive and supportive. They generally perform better than kids who lack confidence, even if they’re less talented than the other kids.

Parents and Kids Struggle with These Confidence Busters

Here’s what parents typically report to us about their kids’ confidence…

Negative Thoughts Drain Kids’ Energy

“The negative thoughts literally drain energy. If they are having these doubts about their performance when playing sports, they are likely to be experiencing doubts in other areas of their life as well. Consider how often they are quietly beating themselves up. The worst part is if there is no intervention, this self criticism continues into their adult life.”

Perfectionist Trains Like Champion, Falls Apart During Competition

“My youngest is a perfectionist and although he trains like a champion, he gets on the blocks and voila…all his practice, his physical memory, his belief…blow up! It doesn’t matter what we say, how we say it, self-doubt seems to creep in… Both sons have what it takes physically….but will their heads get in the way?”

Daughter Dominates in Scrimmages, Plays Poorly in Games

“In Basketball my daughter dominates in scrimmages during practice and can shoot 3 pointers better than anyone in her school including the young men. When she gets on the court during her basketball games she gets that ‘Deer in the Headlights’ look and plays poorly, rarely taking a shot. I have tried everything to help her but I am at the point where I don’t know how to help her through this. How do I get her comfort level back when she is on the court?”

Help your sports kid overcome these challenges
and become confident, successful athletes!

Over the last six months we’ve been working hard on a program to help parents and their athletes overcome these confidence killers. The culmination is a new program that will benefit both you and your young athletes. You’ll improve your sports parenting skills and your athletes will learn critical confidence-boosting skills that they can apply to sports….and life.

It’s called “The Confident Sports Kid: A 7- Day Plan for Boosting Self Confidence in Young Athletes.” Packed with mental strategies that you and your kids can start using immediately, this program teaches your athletes how to identify confidence busters, proactively deal with them, manage expectations that undermine confidence, and mentally prepare to stay confident when faced with adversity.

 

What’s more, our new program teaches you, as sports parents and coaches, how you may be hurting your kids’ confidence and gives you instructions for changing your behavior in ways that will improve your athletes’ performance, confidence and enjoyment.

We even provide specific tips about how to talk to your young athletes about confidence issues! (As sports parents ourselves, we know that communicating with kids isn’t always easy.) What’s more, the kids’ workbook gives young athletes concrete, easy to understand advice for overcoming confidence busters.

“The Difference in My Son Was Miraculous”

“I recently bought your program for kids who are perfectionist, “Sports Parents Top Dilemma . I must say that the difference in my son was miraculous. Also, since my son read the program and did so well, I see his old self (fear of failure) coming back little by little. Do you have any other resources’ that I could get for him?
