About the session 

We want our kids and athletes to successfully deal with the difficulties that sport (and life) present and learn to embrace risk and discomfort because they have the tools to handle both. We can teach them to rise about frustration and disappointment and see that mistakes and setbacks are temporary - simply a problem to be solved. When athletes understand that mistakes are part of sport (and life) and all problems have a solution; they learn to become the super-hero in their own lives and they step up and save themselves. When an athlete believes they can save themselves and understands, the most important approval is self-approval, it does not guarantee a gold medal, but it does build self-esteem, character and resilience. I am convinced these are Gold Medal attributes on the podium of life.
