Today will be all about what to do after you get benched.
Now, I'm talking about getting benched because you made a mistake, or your coach is mad at you, or you are not working hard. When I was playing, I never knew what to do in those situations.
Usually, when you get benched, all you think about is the negative, right? You come off the field huffing and puffing and MAD! This is not engaging and will not help you in any way. You are not thinking about what you can do better in this moment.
BUT... I want to give you some tips that will help you in this scenario.
The first thing I want you to do is: Ask your coach for feedback.
This is especially important if you don't know what you did wrong. If you want to get back on the field and be better, make it known to your coach that you want to fix whatever it is that you did wrong. Something you could say is, "What can I do next time I get back on the field to do better?"
The second tip is: Focus on your breathing.
