With today’s intense youth sport environment, the frequency of athlete burnout is becoming a concern. Coaches, parents, and athletes themselves can engage in certain practices to decrease the likelihood of athlete burnout. Below are a few suggestions for how to help athletes stay motivated in sport and avoid burnout.
Create a fun training environment. Regardless of level, a fun sport environment is a critical component to keeping athletes engaged and refreshed in sport. Olympic level athletes consistently cite fun and enjoyment during training as a key to helping them fall in love with their sport and reach their high levels. Just a note – a fun environment can still be challenging, intense, and skill focused.
