Focus Techniques for Youth Athletes to Overcome Pressure mentaltoughnesstrainer.com
Here is a mental toughness pressure tip from Craig Sigl, the Mental Toughness Trainer for Youth Sports to help you learn how to put your center of attention completely on your target. That means focusing all of your mental energy on the spot you want the ball to go to...
For instance, a baseball pitcher will zone in on the catcher's mitt and ignore all else. A basketball player about to shoot a free throw stares at the sweet spot in the hoop. A golfer concentrates only on the flag and allows the green, the crowds, the sand traps to fade away. The kicker directs his focus on the point between the goal posts that he wants the ball to fly through.
Here is the important and not so easy part, first you focus and then you need to let go of the mechanics and trust all the training time and drilling you have done up to this point. You need to just let your natural athletic ability come through!
Even if you haven't played well that day, it doesn't matter! TRUST and let go of control. The only thing you should control is where your FOCUS is going.
