Racing psychology expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn, at racingpsychology.com helps NASCAR, Motocross, and motorcycle racers improve performance and lap times by boosting focus and confidence on race day. Learn mental game of racing tips and strategies.
In today’s psychology of racing session, I answer a question about how to develop young athletes racing confidence.
I answer the following mental game of racing question:
“My son worries too much about what others think about him and how he rides. I would like to see him have fun again with his riding. What strategies can he use to become a better rider, not worry about others, and have more self-confidence?”
Some sports parents may not realize that their expectations may put pressure on their young athletes.
Young athletes may feel they have to race well to please a parent. To develop racing confidence, racers need to focus on their own race plan and not their competitors.
Improve your training before race day by supporting your own racing confidence.
