How to give your daughter the confidence to talk to her coach on her own

Mar 20, 2022

One of the greatest things I ever did as an athlete was have conversations with my coaches.

I’ll be the first one to tell you these conversations were not always easy! Sometimes they were uncomfortable, scary, and emotional, BUT… I always felt better after having it (even if I cried the entire time lol). 

I believe that if a coach doesn’t know what’s on your mind or what you need, it’s your responsibility to make that known.

Just like in relationships, we aren’t mind readers!

And, you sure as heck don’t want to get into a habit of being “that parent” that is always texting, calling, talking to the coach about your daughter. 

💪 You want to give her the confidence to talk to her coach on her own.

💪 You want to teach her how to be her own advocate.

💪 You want to empower her to get out of her comfort zone and stand up for herself.

Here are 3 steps to help give your daughter the confidence to talk to her coach on her own whether it’s about playing time, her goals, the recruiting process, her role, etc.: 

1️⃣ Help her set a time/date with her coach to talk 

2️⃣ Create a plan and make sure to write it down 

3️⃣ Create affirmations (positive self-talk) for confidence in this conversation with coach

We will actually be working on these 3 steps in weekly Mindset Lessons this week. I’ll be guiding the girls who show up through these steps, so she is ready to have that conversation with confidence! 

Schedule your daughter’s weekly Mindset Lesson here! 

See you this week!
