The Sports Psychology Podcast
In this sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps parents understand when their athletes should quit sports. Here is the question, Dr. Cohn answers in this episode:
BETH: I am struggling to figure out if I should quit basketball. I get stressed before every game and practice. I find myself making excuses not to go. This is the only sport I play, and therefore why I find myself attached. My stomach drops every time I think about playing and my mind thinks of the worst. Everything is just too intense. The two-hour practices and even games over the summer, and 11 months straight of playing. Can I overcome these feelings?

What are our mental coaching students saying?
“WOW!!! What a week I had. I was able to perform with a confidence that allowed my style to shine through–no more entering the arena with that “deer in the headlights” look or feeling. I stopped evaluating myself while I was performing, and I actually left the arena after my patterns feeling like I had experienced a lot of fun. Thank you so much.”

“After your session, Mason had a game. He had the best game so far! He hustled, shot, no goals but two assists but he was cool with it because his focus was on shooting and not scoring (finally), defended well with his hands – finally put it all together. It was fun to watch and you could tell he felt really good about it.”
