The Unsure Athlete “What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?” As parents and coaches, we go through phases, and our athletes also go through phases; one phase that athletes go through is feeling and wanting to “not play anymore.” Now, this can be completely upsetting for us! We will become …

Injuries…What do we do?

 Injuries…What do we do? “Never let a stumble in the road be the end of the journey.” Unfortunately, in any sport, injuries are inevitable. Some are minor and some are major. Some can be even life changing and altering, while some can be a small scrape to the knee. But what can we do to …

Don’t Pout! The Selfish Athlete “You can’t be a smart cookie with a crumbly attitude!” Selfish athletes? Do you have them on your team?

I Don’t Fit the Mold “Don’t follow someone else’s way, find what works for you and stick to it.” Fitting in is easy for some and hard for others. We have young athletes who want to have the coolest clothes, makeup, shoes, games, and so forth, not necessarily because they like those materialistic things, but …

I’m Busy: Don’t Be Busy, Be Productive!

I’m Busy: Don’t Be Busy, Be Productive! “You did not wake up today to be mediocre.” Busy. A common word we use as an excuse when we don’t want to do something. A word that is severely misused and misunderstood. If you look up the definition of busy, you will find: “occupied with or concentrating …

The Next Level

The Next Level “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love for what you are doing or learning to do.” Getting to the next level is not easy. It is easily said, written down, and talked about, but when your athlete actually starts gaining experience on …

A Coaching Perspective

A Coaching Perspective “Be the woman who you needed as a girl.” Every child, athlete, and person has a different upbringing. We have grown up with different role models, learned different ways and styles of life, and overall we were molded into the person, student, and athlete that we are through what we were taught …

I Have Nothing To Worry About

I Have Nothing To Worry About “Worrying is a misuse of your imagination.” Starting as little kids, we imagine things. Dreams, hopes, fairytales and so forth. We see everything with bright lights, happiness, and excitement. But as we get older, we suddenly learn about this sense of worry… Worrying about what could go wrong with …
