"Kids' Sports Psychology quite a find. It's a treasure trove of practical, insightful information presented in an organized, simple format that is so easy to use. It is exactly what I was looking for to help my daughter succeed in competition, as much as she succeeds during practice. Additionally, these concepts can be applied to all areas of her life and, as her parent, I can't stress enough how important it is to me, that she develop confidence, and how valuable this resource is to that end. Thank you so much!"

~Stephanie Dobbs, Sports Parent and KSP Member


"Kids' Sports Psychology is a great web site by the way. One of the best web sites I've been on. It's really, really helpful."

~Gavin Clark, PGA, England


"While my son struggled in the State Alpine Skiing finals, (this was when I first joined Kids' Sports Psychology), he managed to qualify for the Eastern Nationals and two weeks ago took home gold for the 10 - 12 year old division. I will always remember that winning run.... He said 'Dad, I struggled out the start gate, but felt like I skied as fast as I could the rest of the course.'"

~Sports Parent


"I've read a number of Kids' Sports Psychology articles and watched several videos mostly about building confidence. As sports parents, we've changed our behavior. We've stopped criticizing her performance and have focused on what she did well. We do see an improvement in her practices, but most of all they are more enjoyable for her and us."

~Margot Ambrose, Sports Parent


"I want to mention how much I enjoy the Kids' Sports Psychology website. Your site is a great value for the money. It's informative, easy to use, and contains very useful information on a wide range of sports psychology topics."

~Paul, Sports Dad


"Sports psychology for kids and sports parents is a wonderful topic, but I am so happy about what you're doing in this area. I think professionals like you can be so valuable in helping sports parents."

~Al Miller, Hall of Fame Soccer Coach


"I think Kids' Sports Psychology website is great! There is a lot of good information. The information was easy to understand and I really liked the question and answer section because that applies to real-life situations. I loved the featured articles on the homepage."

~Jenya


"I watched your neat online videos and loved them! There was so much that I could relate to, both with my son and myself. I also loved all the commonsense, practical advice for parents."

~Pam Rowlinson, Sports Mom


"I especially like the mental game videos that my son can watch alone or we can watch together. The videos help to reinforce all the concepts we have learned together. I think the pre-game stuff is cool and the lessons on confidence, coping with doubt, and trust are worth there weight in gold."

~Dr. Adam Glantzman, Sports Dad


"I do like the kid-focus approach on KidsSportsPsychology.com. The site has clearly a wealth of information on mental strategies for kids to read and take in."

~Brian Henry, Sports Dad


"My son and I enjoy going to Kids' Sports Psychology and learning about mental training. He has put some of the mental training into practice and he feels very good about it."

~~John Mangini, Sports Parent


"I know that your articles, podcasts and information are helping our 4th grade boys basketball team. It is a competitive "travel team." After finding your website, I have implemented a lot of your advice with the team. I have emphasized that we as coaches don't expect perfection and that every time we win or lose, it is an opportunity to learn another part of the game. The parents are really happy with the coaching that my assistant and I are providing. We focus on positive feedback and continually attempt to build up the players' confidence."

~Chris Duffy, Coach


"I use your tips to help a sophomore high school student athlete. Last night, after I gave him some of your email tips -- relax, get in the flow of the game, have fun, play by instinct, etc. -- He busted loose for a career high 20 points and 15 rebounds!"

~Bob Heidkamp


"I love what you do on your website and the impact and influences you're making on children's lives across our great country."

~H. Rothenberg


"We really enjoy your emails and are grateful that we found your website. It is so needed. There really isn't much out there to guide the parent. Thank you for your work. And yes, we have passed on your website to numerous parents."

~Debbie and Peter Cooney, Sports Parents


Our son's attitude and team spirit really improved (as a result of our Sports Parents' Coach session)--even his coaches and teammates noticed--and they made a point of telling him and us, which was great! He can't wait to play again next season, and that's the ultimate goal right now."

~Jennifer, Sports Parent


"I will share your website with many others! I'm anxious to read more on your blog page and website. The information you are providing is invaluable to coaches and parents. People need to be aware and stop this sports epidemic so children receive good from sports instead of the negative consequences that perfectionism can create."

~Sports Parent


I just wanted to tell you thank you for your email publications. After reading the articles the last two weeks, it is very apparent that many of my athletes have mental roadblocks that affect their physical performance. This has changed my coaching philosophy and direction with my high school basketball program.

~Brian Deatherage


"I must say, that each tip from you is helping untangle little by little a bit of a fix that my 10 year old daughter's badminton had got into. Wow ! the number of mistakes we have made as sports parents. I do wish I had visited your site, before she started off on a competitive level last year. Would have saved us a lot of unnecessary worry. 'How exactly do kids succeed when they lose or make mistakes?'… one more great tip. She is beginning to improve and have a good time tip by tip."

~Lopamudra


"I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that I am very much enjoying the mental game tips you send me. My teams are grateful for every ounce of knowledge that helps to boost their confidence and self-esteem. They have told me that it not only helps them with their game and their focus but in a lot of other parts of daily life, especially with dealing with everyday pressures with school and peers."

~Rushell MacDonald, Coach

"My wife and I immediately applied your tips and luckily we got a fast response. Our 16-year-old daughter reads like a case study for lack of confidence. She matches the profile your e-book describes: high technical ability and successful in soccer practice but looks like she forgets how to play in games!"
~Glenn G., New Jersey
