Kids gain valuable life skills through competition and we encourage kids in our programs to enter local tournaments. Competing in tournaments can be great fun … or it can be stressful! Preparation is a part of taking away stress on the day and helping your child have fun.
“Competition helps kids learn that it is not always the best or the brightest who are successful, but rather those that work hard and stick with it” Timothy Gunn, Psy.D., pediatric neuropsychologist, quoted in McGuinness, D.,Why Competition Is Good for Kids (and How to Keep It That Way) Parents.com
Coach Adam gives some pointers on what you can prepare the night before for a great pre-tournament routine.
