As a coach, you want the best for your team and players. However, it is often difficult to determine exactly the best way to motivate them.
All children are different and it would be short sighted to believe that each is motivated by the same factors.
Many things must be considered when attempting to motivate young athletes. Kids participating in individual sports will face a different set of circumstances than those in team sports, and motivating one player or participant will take a different set of skills than inspiring an entire team.
The age of the participants and level of competition will each play a role as well.
When searching for the right mix of motivation, it is important to understand what factors actually influence young athletes and how a coach can feed those factors in practices and games in order to achieve the best results.
Additionally, the coach must find the optimal level of “arousal” for the particular sport at hand.
This includes both physical and mental aspects to increase performance. For example, football players and golfers will rely on differing levels of stimulation in order to compete at a prime level.
Also, coaches must be prepared and know how to react when certain sticky situations come about. This may include a player losing interest in a sport, not performing well over several contests or motivating a team in the face of an intimidating opponent, just to name a few.
In this special report, we cover all these topics and much more to give you all the strategies you need to motivate your players and enjoy greater team success than you ever have before.
