Check out this article from a great organization: The Power of Positive by Jim Thompson, the Founder and CEO of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA).
Hustle & Attitude coaches recognize that keeping kids “in the moment” is one of the attitudes that we strive to attain in the athletes and emphasize in our coaching. When a child strikes out or misses a free throw; we want them to be disappointed…in the moment. Then, we want them to shake it off, learn what they can from the experience, and move on to the next part of the game.
That’s the positive attitude that athletes reflect when their coaches demonstrate positive coaching with encouragement and training, not yelling and negativity.
