Make the game fun
How do we do that? We continuously strive to make whatever activity that we do a positive experience for the players. We celebrate in their successes with them, and make sure they know when they are doing well by acknowledging the effort they are putting in, and encouraging them to take the next step. The more we celebrate their successes, the more positive experiences they will have and the more confidence they will gain as a result. This in turn will lead to more success on the field, as well as in life.
