How many times have you seen a talented athlete not perform their best because they fall victim to their own anxieties? How do you think they would have performed had they been taught how to regulate their emotions, thoughts, feelings? How many times has your coach (or you’ve stood there as the coach) told you to do the jump/step/sequence/spin again because you’re still making the same mistake and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t do it? If you’ve been in this situation, keep reading and you might just find out something you didn’t know before.

Nationals 2015 – Day 2
