WYC 047 – Youth Sports - Kevin Kennedy talks how to tap into pre-game nerves as an energy source
Today’s guest is Kevin Kennedy. I met Kevin when he reached out to me because he shares a similar passion for kids having awesome sports experiences, and we now are in a mastermind group together. Kevin is a personal trainer and runs a gymnastics gym in Paramus, NJ called Kids U. Kevin played many sports growing up, including being a collegiate wrestler and one year of JV collegiate basketball. He also kick-boxed after college. Kevin has a passion for youth sports and coaching the kids the right way.
One huge idea I took from Kevin was in the 2nd quarter where he discusses getting kids to say ‘I can do that’ when teaching them. Another huge idea was in the 3rd quarter where he shares how to switch pre-game nerves from being a bad thing into being something to get excited about. I hope you enjoy his insights and stories!
