“Failure” in Sport

Failure is a part of sport and life…

Children get a unique opportunity in sport to experience “failure”, put it into perspective- and learn from it.

Kids often beat themselves up after making mistakes.  As caring coaches it’s our jobs to put their failures into perspective, and help them to learn from it.

We need to build their confidence so that they tackle the next challenge without fear.

They need to learn that every failure is a step towards success.

The only real failure its to give up trying.
