The Focused Sports Kid CD and Workbook Program

“Discover the Secrets To Helping Young Athletes Improve Focus and Concentration—Get Them ‘In The Zone'”

A 7-Day Focusing Plan For Sports Parents And Young Athletes
Helps Kids Overcome Distractions That Can Hurt Kids’ Performance In Youth Sports

From: Dr. Patrick Cohn and Lisa Cohn
(Authors of The Confident Sports Kid Series)

Dear Parents and Coaches,

If your young athletes are easily distracted by people shouting on the sidelines, if they are obsessing over their mistakes, or if they worry about what people think of them–their concentration and performance will suffer.

How well your kids focus and what they focus on can make or break your athlete’s experience in sports.

As sports parents and coaches, you influence what your sports kids focus on. You might unknowingly distract your athletes by attempting to over coach them prior to games, yelling from the sidelines, or focusing them on statistics or outcomes.

These outer distractions can hurt your young athlete’s performance, not to mention the numerous inner distractions they harbor in their minds during competition.

We’ve discovered common inner distractions that hurt kids’ focus and success in youth sports:

  •  Worrying about what others are gong to say about their performance
  •  Thinking about results, such as the score, the win, or a possible loss
  •  Wondering if the coach is going to bench them
  •  Dwelling on past mistakes
  •  Worrying about the prowess of an opponent
  •  Focusing on negative thoughts or comments from others
  •  Worrying about making mistakes

Young athletes tell us they struggle with many of these distractions. Their parents and coaches also report this about their young athletes.

However, we’ve got good news for you…

Focusing on the right things in sports is a skill that can be learned. You can help your young athletes learn how to refocus when they’re distracted. They can learn how to focus their best in competition in order to improve their consistency and performance.

Confident, successful young athletes know how to focus and what to focus on. They understand what “cues” they need to concentrate on. They understand what distracts them and can quickly identify when they’re distracted. What’s more, they can quickly get back on track so they don’t skip a beat.

They know how to “get in the zone,” and spend more time in the zone, feeling “on,” relaxed, and immersed in the process of performing. When they’re in this state, they’re not easily distracted. They can easy to concentrate on what’s most important to their performance.

Kids have this to say about what distracts them:

Parents Talking on Sidelines…

My parents talk a lot on the sidelines. That makes me lose focus. They coach me. They say, ‘Run harder. Go.’ My mom is especially loud. My dad is loud especially when it’s outside. Sometimes I have to yell at them during the games. They’re talking to me, coach is talking to me, and I’m trying to follow the ball.”*
~Erin, middle school soccer player

Unexpected or Unappealing Events….

“Last week, in the middle of a game, there was this guy and a humongous glob of spit flew out of his mouth and onto my arm. I started worrying that the guy had Rabies. I got distracted. I stopped playing for a minute to wipe the spit off my arm.”*
~Trevor, middle school basketball player

How Other Athletes Look in Their Uniform or Swimsuit…

“Guys in Speedos are a distraction for me and my friends. If an overweight guy is wearing a Speedo, you try not to look at him, but you keep looking, anyway.”*
~Kateland, middle school swimmer

Help Your Young Athletes Cope with Distractions in Sports and Ensure They Focus on What Will Help Them Feel Focused, Successful, and “In The Zone.”

We designed this program, specifically for young athletes and their parents or coaches, to help athletes concentrate on what’s important so they can perform their best. It’s the culmination of years of research into what distracts kids in youth sports, how distractions hurt them, and what helps them focus at peak levels.

In addition, we help parents and coaches identify how they distract athletes and teach you how to help your kids focus. It also helps your young athletes identify how they get distracted and teaches them mental skills to stay focused on the right things so they have fun and make the most of their physical talent.

It’s full of practical mental-game strategies that will help your young athletes improve their focus and success immediately. It’s really two programs in one

First, the program includes a workbook and CD for young athletes, which walks them through seven simple lessons in mental focus in sports.

Second, the program includes a manual and CD for parents/coaches that provides mental game tips especially designed for parents and coaches. You’ll also learn about how you might distract your young athletes and how this hurts their game; and how to behave before competitions to give your athletes the mental advantage.

Kids learn mental strategies for better concentration so they can focus and excel. Young athletes discover why focus is so critical and find out how to identify their distractions. They discover what they should be focusing on in their sport—specific “performance cues,” or thoughts, feelings, targets or images related to their sport.

Most importantly, the program teaches them strategies to help them quickly re-focus when they are distracted.

We even provide specific suggestions aimed at helping you communicate to your kids in ways that enhance their focus and confidence (As sports parents ourselves, we understand that it’s not always easy communicating with young athletes about sports when everyone feels so passionate about it!).

Here’s what People Say About Our Resources:

“Helped Our Daughter Tremendously”

“We just completed the first ten tips, it has helped tremendously for (our daughter) and us. We’ve learned to keep our behavior and comments in check. She’s letting mistakes happen and not worrying about them, she’s now just moves on to the next play with the same attitude as before the mistakes. She’s playing more aggressively all game. Her coach even mentioned that whatever we are doing, keep doing because it’s working.”*
~Scott, Sports Dad

“The Resources You Have Available Have Been Wonderful”

“The resources that you have available on your website have been wonderful. I am slowly learning [and hopefully] in time that a sound mental game may be more important then the actual physical part of the sport that your child plays. Yes you have to have the talent but the mental game is what sets apart as a very good athlete compared to an elite athlete. As a parent, you need to find the time to teach yourself and help your child understand the Psychology of sport. All the hard work on the ice/field could eventually pay off and not just in sport but in every day life. Thanks again.”*
~Darren, Sports Dad

“My Boys Succeeded! We Beat A Team No one Could Beat!”

“I read your report and prepared a one-page summary for my team. I asked the team to attend a 10am training session on Saturday before the final on Sunday. (I told parents) they must obtain the one-page summary handout from me and ask a parent to read it to them until they understood what it meant…My boys succeeded! We beat a team that no one could beat during the year, that was coached by a former professional player that had sons of former Professional players in the team and as a result of believing in themselves, they won. In my humble opinion , I look beyond the game and hope the kids have learned a lesson in life that you really can do almost anything if you put your mind to it. We salute you and the wonderful work you do.”*
~Anthony (Tony) Costa, coach
