“We know that how we think about situations largely determines our experience of them.” – Betsy Butterick

I had the privilege of watching this panel live and the whole time, I was optimistic that I would be able to share it with our EDGB community.  As coaches, we spend so much time on the physical skills of our athletes, but often don’t take the necessary time to focus on the mental component of our respective sports.  Often we expect our athletes to take on the mentality of their coach.  Parents cloud the mental aspect of the game that much more.

I think that as coaches, and leaders in our respective sectors – that you will find the mental skills discussed within this panel amazingly helpful.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.
