Understanding Motivation in Youth Sports

The question of how to motivate young athletes to meet many professionals are still some people who just can not figure out how to reach the level of incentives they want. 

Instead of focusing on the different ways in which we can try to increase the motivation of young athletes, let us first try to understand the variety of factors including motivation, focus on how the coach can understand the factors motivating young athletes. There are many articles and studies conducted in the general goal is to find a way to increase the motivation of sport for young people. Despite all the advances, there are many parents, coaches, and teachers still find it difficult to get young athletes excited to go and play their Sport. I suggest you focus on the transition to know each athlete before pointing to the fact that not everyone is excited to go and play their sport.The easiest way to try to better understand the motives that every athlete is a real conversation with the athlete and hear what they say. I realize this may be difficult, the children tend to be more quiet side, but there are ways to find a common language for all children. Start talking about school or what they want to do in your spare time. You'd be surprised how many kids love to say, when you can get it going Concerning matters to them. With limited time and skills to various conflicting family schedules, sometimes it is impossible to have a relationship with each member of the team. However, for a long time, many opportunities to encourage players to discussions not necessarily related to sports. So, what is the sense of familiarity with them, It is a good question.
Among the future teachers of physical education and health, I learned through my experience that children will respond positively to the dedicated people from getting general feedback can show all the classes (in this case, the command). The better we know each child, learn more about it. In some cases, the young athletes participating in sport because they have adequate qualifications and success in playing sport. These types of athletes are not always to add an incentive to have the best performance, but must focus on how elite athletes continue to challenge them, so that they can reach their full potential. If the coach does not continue to challenge the much-athletes expect young athletes may be interested in sports, which shows the perceived lack of motivation and enthusiasm. Sometimes most elite athletes are more competitive than most of their teammates. Almost all coaches expect their team athletes with a competitive spirit, athletes usually excited about the great competition, and we expect a lot from myself. Coach should be aware that they must give their best to ensure that the athlete is in a situation where they can compete. Athlete can lose their interest in the sport or the team, if they continue to do the exercises and work on strategy, and does not change the nature of the situation of the game. However, continues to challenge the well-trained athlete is not always the case in youth sports. In fact, they are usually more experienced athletes are considered outsiders, such as lack of motivation in sport.
This lack of motivation can be many reasons, most of them are not seen by asking why young athletes are not interested in sport. Some children just to study and learn different concepts of strategy games. Some children may not be guests in competitive intensity and therefore tend to "freeze" on the day of the game. Many times athletes considered to show a lack of motivation because of the coach or parents do not understand that the athletes really want to be involved in sport. Rather than upset the athletes or to punish them for showing the perceived "lack of motivation", the coach should try to understand the reasons why athletes do not show great excitement, both during the practices or other aspects of the sport. It is important to understand that every athlete is different and everyone has different things that happen in their lives that may or may not have an effect on their performance in the field.
