Share This Resource

This blog post on handling mistakes comes from US Lacrosse, a longtime PCA National Partner. Whether you're a coach, parent or athlete, you know from your time in sports that handling mistakes is one of the most difficult challenges in youth sports (and life!) How coaches handle mistakes at practice sets the tone for how players will react to them, how much effort they'll give, and ultimately, how successful they'll be.

A Double-Goal Coach® knows that helping players bounce back and learn from mistakes is a critical step in helping them to play with less anxiety and to put forth maximum effort.
