Parents for the most part, always have good intentions behind their negative comments, dirty looks, or ugly body language when trying to help their kids. The same can be said about the parents that are alwasy positive with their kids and never criticize or critique their child's play. Every parent wants their child to succeed in life, and also on the field when playing sports. Most of us don't realize the effect it has on our child's overall game play, development, and their individual will or desire to want to be better down the road when we are too negative or too positive in their youth and adolescent years in sports.

Why did we sign our kids up for sports? What influenced us as parents to get them involved on a team, and what life lessons are we trying to teach them? Did we want them to get involved on a team to learn what hard work is all about, teach them how to deal with and overcome adversity, to learn how to become winners, or to just have fun playing ball? Your athlete, no matter what age, is dealing with some of life's major lesson...

Sports psychology is hardly a new field; baseball in recent years has come to accept its growing place in the game. The players union, during the most recent negotiations with management, asked that teams provide a separated space for the mental skills coaches to meet with players.

Allan Jaeger, of Jaeger Sports, believes he has the program that can save pitchers from injury while increasing their velocity. Jaeger's program is rooted in a traditional baseball exercise, long tossing. Since the early days of baseball, players have been long tossing. Most performed long tossing because they believed it strengthened their arm. Jaeger agrees. "If muscles are inactive for a long enough period of time, or aren't used close to their desired capacities, the life is taken out of them. When muscles are given proper blood flow, oxygen, and range of motion, they are free to work at their optimum capacity. A good long-toss program is the key to giving life to a pitcher's arm."

The reason motivation is so important is that it is the only contributor to sports performance over which you have control. My There are three things that affect how well you perform. First, your ability, which includes your physical, technical, tactical, and mental capabilities. Because ability is something you are born with, you can't change your ability so it is outside of your control.
