4 Ways for Young Athletes to Build Confidence

Professional athletes are the best in the world at their sport. In order to reach that elite level, they have to have talent, dedication and the desire to constantly work hard to improve their game. While ability and work ethic are essential skills, there's another important characteristic that sets professionals apart: confidence.

No matter the skill level, confidence can make all the difference on the court or playing field. While a lack of confidence can have a devastating effect, faith and assurance in their ability can take a young athlete's game to the next level. When they feel confident, they play harder and better, but just like physical skills, confidence is something that requires practice.

Use these tips to help your kid become a more confident athlete.
