Confidence Is Earned

Confidence – Believing in yourself

 

Often kids lose confidence in sports and other activities due to the car ride home after.

They need a balance of support (parents) and improvement (coaches), trying to play both.

Confidence is earned through overcoming challenges, which requires perseverance.

This perseverance is not so easily attained without support. Support is not just correction, that is the instructors job, support comes in the form of just being their and being proud of the effort to help point out what was done well or correctly and celebrate in those small victories, even if it ended up in failure.

This balance of support can be attained with both instructors and parents between working together as teammates so that both roles can be fulfilled.

Forever your teammate
