Coaches track

Create more fun for your players

By YAAP sports and performance psychologists

Among YAAP sports psychologists, there is a strong belief that every talent in sports has the right to have fun. Pleasure in what you do and pleasure in your performance. That doesn't mean you don't have to work hard or everything should always be fun. No one gets any further by standing still. Training, suffering, and adversity are part of it. You cannot be your best self without overcoming obstacles and knowing yourself. This causes, sometimes only afterwards, a smile, satisfaction or joy.
