Some sports kids have more confidence in certain sports skills than others. For example, an athlete may feel good about his shot in basketball, but lack confidence in his rebounding skills. This is common for many athletes. They feel more confident about their strengths and less confident about their weaknesses.
Most young athletes often lack confidence for three reasons: (1) They do not know how to improve–other than with more practice. This is very common and that’s why we’re here to help you and your young athletes. (2) They have a fragile state of confidence; their confidence changes rapidly from play to play. (3) They had a difficult experience or past failure that hurts their confidence.
