  • Bounce Back Players often ask, "How do I bounce back from an error?" And I tell them, like anything else, it takes practice. Training your mind and controlling your thoughts and emotions can be just as demanding as learning a skill like hitting or serving. Great players know and understand the powerful nature of negative thinking. They know that it can impact their own game and the game of those around them. Understanding its power and respecting that, will inspire you to look for new ways to bounce back from that next error.

  • Serving - Keep it Simple Serving is one of the first skills young players want to learn. Often it helps them make their first team, because every coach loves a consistent and powerful server, especially at the young levels, where serving can often dominate a game. There are many different serves, and many reasons to know how to serve, both from the floor (standing) and from the air (jumper). Once you master your serve, concentrate on velocity, zone serving, and of course consistency. Serving is one of the simplest skills in our sport, and with a little effort and lots of mental concentration, you will find success.

  • From The Mouths of Babes I think kids are so honest, about so many things, but especially about how they feel. At a young age, kids experience the world with a bright, new intensity through sport. In turn, their parents experience a bright, new world too, but it is important to keep in mind that this world does belong to the child. Find out what kids think about how their parents watch their sporting events. It may surprise you!
