WYC 031 Mental Sports Psychology – James Leath talks achieving peak mental performance
Today we welcome Coach James Leath. James is currently getting his masters in mental sports psychology, has coached youth sports for many years, and is a student of all aspects of sports performance. James started coaching when his 8th grade coach had to leave the team, so James took over and coached his own 8th grade team! James played college football and played for the Los Angeles Extreme in the XFL.
The two huge ideas I took from this interview are both in the 2nd quarter – where James shares the secrets on how to truly be effective in teaching children, along with ways to improve your youth practices immediately. James is the type of student of coaching we can all learn immensely from - I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
