365 Days to Better Baseball - Apply Heat or Ice

February 27 - Motivational Monday Tip of the Day

Forget the Heat and Ice

When players are injured, there is always the debate whether to apply the heat or the ice to cure the injury. Coaches and parents have the same dilemma, when trying to motivate kids to work hard - push or pull back. There is no easy answer, but applying the heat (pushing too hard) or the ice (ignoring players after poor play) is never the answer.

Adults, who keep an even keel, while simply explaining the following sports perspective, are serving their kids best:

  1. 1. Success will most likely appear after hard work is applied.
  2. 2. They will be considered a success when they prepare the best way they know how, with help from parents and coaches, of course, no matter the results.
