GET MY NEW BOOK! The Unstoppable Athlete: 12 Keys to Unlock Your Full Potential! For Teen and College Athletes Who Play Sports

Coach #1 Tip for Player Mental Health


Each and everyday I want to encourage you to pick one player minimum, look them in the eyes, and from your heart say to them, "I care about you. You're going to do great things in your lifetime."

This communicates two things to them:

1. "You have value."

2. "You have a purpose beyond athletics. The best is yet to come for you."

So many of the athletes you coach do not yet believe these truths about themselves. 

f you do this every single day, you will hit your entire team multiple times in a single season.

Words change lives.

And a coach's words are among the most life-changing for a young man or woman. This is the Love-Powered Coaching that I talk about in The Youth Truth book.

As a society, I do not think it is right that we blame coaches for the majority of athlete mental health issues (although there are plenty of cases where this is warranted). Blaming does not encourage or empower. It does not fix anything.

However, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that a coach has the power and opportunity to transform the way an athlete views him or herself and what they believe about their purpose and their future.

I'll say it again-- today, through text, a phone call, or ideally face to face tell at least one of your players, "I care about you. You're going to do great things in your lifetime."

Dedicated to your athletes success in sports and life,

Coach Andrew
