With practice, your athletes can build their confidence and mental game skills. First, you want to look at how they think. Identify the thought processes that hurt their confidence. Second, you want to teach them how to think and feel differently. Athletes can learn how to remain confident after making mistakes or experiencing adversity.
It’s critical for your players to understand that they need to take responsibility for improving their confidence; in much the same way they must take responsibility for improving individual physical skills such as passing or pitching. However, you can change your behavior in a way that helps build your teams confidence such as using positive reinforcement and praising hard for rather than success.
