Help your young athlete set goals, and ways to reach those goals this season.

As a new year begins, you want to help your athlete set appropriate goals for their athletic activities this year.

Goal setting is an essential piece of the sports child’s mental game.

As Michael Jordan said:

“You have to know your goals before you can do them.”

Setting appropriate goals is a fundamental part of growing as an athlete, and without them your sports kids’ improvement may stall out, especially relative to peers who are setting goals.
