Junior tennis player, Angela, hid her frustration from her coach and her parents when she was making mistakes in the tennis match. She worried about what they say about double faulting–losing two points in a row. Tennis made her happy. She loved playing it, and loved the feeling of hitting a good shot–not because her parents loved watching her play. But she worried too much about what others thought about her play. Angela realized now more than ever that if she wanted to do well and relax, she needed to play for herself and focus only on the game.
Both parents and young athletes will enjoy the important lessons they learn. In The Confident Sports Kids Picture Book Series, young athletes and their parents learn valuable lessons through sports about confidence, focus, letting go of expectations and pressure, and how to be more successful in sports using proven sports psychology strategies.
