Ken Eriksen, 2020 Olympic Coach, talks about teaching players how to block out social media distractions during season.
In today's world, the ever-presence of social media is hard to avoid. Those online pressures, both negative and positive, can have a big effect on a player's attitude, happiness and productivity. While you can't micromanage your athletes, encourage them to set social media boundaries, especially approaching big games or tournaments. Remind them that what people say and do online shouldn't affect how they view themselves or their sport.
