A Mental Strength Tool Kit

During the interview I asked players to send me their notes...I choose my favorite, and it is included below as well!  If anyone wants to do a cool graphic representation (something like this) of the notes of the webinar - send them to Skye@SoccerParenting.com and I'll get those posted as well!

The audio is perfect, but with all the demands on gotowebinar, unfortunately the video did not process.  So - have a listen, learn, and enjoy!!!

    Will you have additional dates for your Mental Strength toolkit besides Tuesday 24th? We would like to consider providing the option to players in our club…Thank you

    • Skye Eddy Bruce says:

      HI Eddie – Tuesday will be a unique webinar…and we don’t plan to do that one again. All of our webinars are free when they are live – and then the recordings get put behind the membership wall at the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com. A club membership to the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com is just $500 a year for the entire club (all parents and coaches) so maybe that is an option for you. Given the stress clubs are feeling with COVID – I am happy to work with you to delay part of this payment until the fall. My email is Skye@SoccerParenting.com.
