In a perfect world, you and your team would never lose focus and you would never encounter disruptions in play, but no plan ever turns out perfect. Things happen that are beyond your control, but your team has to prepare itself proactively so you can rebound quickly. Athletes should prepare themselves to make good choices and cope actively with any situation.
Like any other challenge you face in sports, you have to be prepared to make positive choices – this is just good mental preparation. Develop and rehearse your teams refocusing strategy any time prior to your pre-game warm up. This will help prepare your athletes mind to cope well with any adversity or disruptions in the flow of the game.
