Anger in sports is a problem in every league. In this podcasting episode I have asked Ray Lokar Lokar of Basketball4ALL to discuss specific ways that coaches and parents can help athletes deal with their anger in competition.
Basketball4ALL provides lessons, camps, clinics, competitions, and events for the Southern California basketball community. Lokar is also the Southern California Lead Trainer for the Positive Coaching Alliance. He has spoken for hundreds of organizations nationwide on ethics in sports, getting the most out of your players, and being a good Sports Parent.
Coach “Lók” has taught basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, football, swimming and track in the San Gabriel Valley just outside of Los Angeles, Ca for over 30 years at the youth, high school, and college levels and has worked countless camps and clinics during that time for ages 8-18. He coached his children Shawn, Heather, and Brittany throughout their participation in youth and high school sports and they each went on to compete at the college level. Ray enjoyed it so much he is doing it all again with his young son, Tyler.
