Advice to children who are not good at controlling emotions. Tips to control irritation during the game.
Junior players are not good at controlling emotions when compared with adults. It is irritated by few things and often ruins the game. It will be convincing if you lose it by demonstrating the strength as practiced, but when you lose without control of your emotions you will feel regrettable. Today from my experience, I will try to write a solution, taking Junior as an example, which can control emotions well.
Emotional control techniques.
Emotions are inherent in humans. Even a player who looks calm, there are various conflicts in one’s mind. Especially tennis fighting by one person is often irritated when anxiety comes in, often putting out to attitude and voice, and going out to self-destruction. It tends to be thought that it is impossible to solve, but that is not the case. Emotional control can be solved by acquiring techniques like forehand stroke and volley.
Make a routine.
First of all, it is to make routine so that when emotions get disturbed, you can calm down. Before hitting service, hit the ball five times and raise the toss. When you set on return, you can restore the disturbed feelings by deciding the number, such as turning the racket three times in the palm of your hands and always doing the same action. But that alone is hard to be a fundamental solution. Players who are strongly mentally strong to some extent can be solved by this method, but there are many players who can not do that easily. So what should they do for the players who do not easily go?
Find out the habit of children’s mind.
Human thinking has a habit of blaming oneself or overconsidering solutions when the one is having trouble during the game. First of all, It is the first step of the solution to find out children’s habits of thinking and heart habits. To do that, what kind of thing are you thinking when you are irritated? We need to talk with each other.
My coaching experience
Even a junior player I was teaching before, because of their serious nature, if the one did not go well, there was a junior okayer who chases himself not to go more aggressively if he does not hit it more firmly. Every time the player and emotion became uncontrollable we discussed and we learned what we were thinking at that time. To that player, there was a habit of a heart that serious character disappears and trying to solve it with all seriousness. Therefore, when it ceased to work, I advised him to mix middle lobbing and so on and to let him like hia opponent’s likes. It is not a problem even if he drops one game. I taught that it is more deadly to continue dropping several games after the habit of a worse heart has runaway. By doing so it became possible to fight to the end without collapsing oneself. Of course, as I wrote here, it will not go smoothly. Because it is serious, it is a character that does not feel like fig ing if he does not fight until it fills a lot of feelings. We talked over and over again, taught middle robbing and taught tactics that used it and tied it to the result. The player knows when the result comes out. There is my memory that took about a year and a half.
What you can do for your father and mother.
Find the habit of your child’s heart and follow it so that the one can self-control not to enter bad thoughts. I think that it is important to listen to the story calmly about the feelings during the game. Positive thinking, players who learned to control their emotions with techniques will be able to demonstrate strong mental at all times. I think learning emotional control during the game has a positive effect on not only tennis but also life.
