Dealing or Coping with Pre Match Pressure & Stress

Feeling pressure & stress before important matches is quite normal.  Sometimes it goes away once the match has started and other times we never quite settle into our comfort zone.  Here are a few tips to help manage pressure & stress

Tip 1 – Have a game plan and visualize yourself executing your strategy and what you want the outcome to be

Tip 2 –It’s just a game and remember that at the end of the match, win or lose, as long as you try your best that’s all your parents, team mates and coaches could expect of you.
