Pressure in Youth Sports

Pressure is part of all sports and its impact in youth sports is something we need to carefully evaluate. The spotlight is brightest in baseball; there is simply no place to hide. For the pitcher, batter, catcher and anybody the ball is hit to, all the attention of parents and peers is riveted on that player. In soccer, basketball or other sports, itís easy enough to ďblend inĒ, but not in baseball. I have tremendous respect for every kid who takes the risk and goes out to play ball Ė especially the kids who are not as talented; itís not easy. This is especially true for a young pitcher who controls every aspect of the game. Is there simply too much pressure put on kids to early? I donít think so. As we evaluate the physiological aspects of pressure, the kidís psychology, our own beliefs, and effective ways to deal with pressure, Iíll let you know why.
