USA Swimming's New Video: Conquer the Greatest Distraction of All

Jun 23, 2014

SYCH Parent,

Learning the skills of mental toughness is one of sport’s greatest challenges.  Would you like to learn how to help that process along?

This month’s Positive Parent Video on our web site, “Conquer the Greatest Distraction of All” describes the roadblocks to your child’s concentration and provides strategies for improving focus during competitions.  The concepts apply to every sport and life in general!  Be sure to check out the video’s companion Game Plan .pdf document to put this concept into practice. 

You’ll also enjoy the audio interview with Jerri Kelly, a high school athletic director with kids in multiple sports.  Her view on the changing landscape of youth sports and the parenting role will shed light on both the opportunities and the challenges you’re up against.
