Never Won a Game, Help! : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I am taking on a job as head volleyball coach in a girls high school. This is their second season. In their first season the girls never won a game. I know their coach wasn't that great. I have a lot of experience to offer to these girls!

They are mediocre players. What will it take to convince them they can win??????

I know the other teams are more experienced than my girls, but what can I do to mentally prepare these girls to win??????????

Youreally need to concentrate on the following things

motivation encourge each other when they do something well get the players to run up to each other and slap their hands

Talk about what they are doing well not what they are doing wrong before the game.
