    Ok so I'm a relatively new coach although I've been giving lessons and coached five players to state.... Well one of my soon to be sophomores made a huge improvement from Feb to April but in April he began I wanna say goin mental gettin too upset over shots causing him to play rediculously bad lol now i know he's overthinkin an we are at a school where we have state champs an qualifiers every year including myself I never had mental problems that's one thing I can say if my lungs were on fire and I was heaving I pushed through if I felt myself nervous I played better ... So idk what to do he's a smart kid number 1 in class but he just has had a loss of confidence so what can i do for his mental game he's been taken the last month off I thought he needed a break
