You've probably heard of the phrase "iron will" -- someone who uses struggle, loss, challenge, and failure to help their determination or performance gain even more momentum. The methods behind such mental strength are simple, and they're totally effective for coaches to get the results they want from their players.
So what does an "iron will" kind of softball player look like?
A player with that kind of tenacity, according to mental toughness softball specialist, Dr. Alan Goldberg, combines their past success and failure with focus on the main thing.Many coaches make the assumption that these mental practices should be innate, but those coaches would miss out on the opportunity to cultivate championship level thinking in their players from the start.
Mechanics are great, but paired with mental strength, excellent softball technique gets even better.
