    Scott Eyre on Coaching after Life in Major League Baseball

    Scott Eyre on Coaching after Life in Major League Baseball

    “I would get nervous for the kids. I wanted them to succeed so much because that’s what I wanted. I hated losing when I was in high school. I didn’t want the kids to feel that. I wanted them to win.” --Scott Eyre 
    35% on any academic test is a failure. In baseball, batting 300 (or having a 3/10 success rate at the plate) is excellent - even in the MLB.  
    Former major league baseball pitcher Scott Eyre knows this all too well. The left-handed pitcher played for the Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, and Philadelphia Phillies. Eyre played from 1997 - 2009, ending his career on game 6 of the World Series. Eyre won a World Series Championship the year prior with the Phillies, appearing in game 2 with no runs and no hits. 
    Now, Eyre is a husband with two sons attending Purdue University in the fall. Scott has been a baseball coach since 2011 and is currently continuing his coaching career.  
    In this episode, Scott and I talk through…
    His journey to professional baseball  Watching his children play sports after living the professional athlete dream  Being competitive and growing up in an athletically-competent family  Coaching baseball after playing in the Major Leagues  How excellence in baseball is still “failure”   This episode will curb your curiosity about life as a professional athlete while offering powerful insights on parenting and coaching after your own sports career is complete.

    “I realized that people needed more than just fitness to reach their health and wellness goals.” --Chris Edwards 
    How can we be healthy? Really? It’s a question humans have been asking for most of history - and yet, it always seems like there are new quick fixes or conflicting research.

    So what is? And how can we help our kids get there? Chris believes health and wellness is a family matter, and he gives three tips for success in family health. 
    1.Everyone has to be on board. 
    2.Gain an education (don’t worry - Chris will give legitimate resources)
    3.Focus on nutrition first. 
    Information is power, and Chris drops a lot of it in this episode.

    Dr. Greg Rubin on Identifying and Treating Sports-Related Concussions

    Dr. Greg Rubin on Identifying and Treating Sports-Related Concussions

    How can we keep our kids safe while they play the sports they love? 
    Today marks the end of Parenting Peak Performer’s 4th season, and as we wrap up, we’re going to pivot away from talking about the coach’s perspective. Instead, we’re closing our season with another vital topic for parents of athletically-involved kids. 
    Safety. 
    No incredible athletic achievement is worth it if our kids’ health is at stake. 
    To help me process how parents can keep their kids safe on the court and field, I’ve brought in Dr. Greg Rubin. Dr. Rubin is a board-certified internal medicine physician with added qualifications in sport medicine. He established and staffs a walk-in clinic in Naples Florida. He’s the co-founder of The Sports Med Review, a website focused on providing open-access information to sports medicine physicians. 
     
    In this episode, you’re going to hear Dr. Rubin discuss perhaps the most frequent injury in sports medicine: concussions. 
    Today, We’re Answering Key Questions about Concussions  What is a concussion? And what is “second impact syndrome?”  How can you identify them?  How should a concussion be treated?  What can parents do to prevent them?  What can we do to speed up recovery?   
    There’s so much we can do to prevent and treat concussions for young athletes, which is why this episode is absolutely essential for any parent with sports-active children. 
    Want to join the conversation? Let me know what you like in this episode or what you’re curious about by sending your questions and comments to @sportpsychworks or

    On Confidence - What It Is, How To Build It, and How To Get It Back with Coach Micheal Burt

    On Confidence - What It Is, How To Build It, and How To Get It Back with Coach Micheal Burt

    “When I was a high school basketball coach, I wrote down on a napkin one day that a child with confidence will try anything. Whether they succeed or not, they will try. An insecure child will always contract to a place of comfort, a place of security, a place of complacency.” 
     
    -Micheal Burt 
     
    When it comes to understanding what makes peak performers tick, there’s no one better than Coach Micheal Burt. Burt, a former championship women’s basketball coach, is used to coaching go-getters, so it’s no surprise to learn that his track record is filled with outstanding accomplishments. 
    The 13x best-selling author of titles like “Person of Interest,” “Million Dollar Follow Up,” and “Inside the Mind of a Monster” also holds the world record for the most speaking engagements in one day: 41. If you’re scratching your head at how anyone can fit 41 talks in a 24 hour period, you’re not alone. Burt has a long list of near-impossible accomplishments that give him compelling stories and keen insights for driving success. 
    Burt has mastered the art of instilling contagious confidence in those he communicates with. He knows how to “inner engineer” people to win at the highest levels. With deep methodology in coaching the whole person, Burt retired at age 31 to create the coaching program Monster Producer which has quickly grown to over 700 participants around the world.
    Today Michael talks with us about confidence - what it is, how to build it, and how to get it back when it’s been lost. This conversation speaks to me so deeply because it’s applicable not only to those peak performers were trying to raise, but also to ourselves. 
    If something in this podcast ignited your confidence, tell me about it. Share what stood out to you through https://www.kafcounselingandsportperformance.com/contact. You can also keep up with Coach Burt on his website at  http://www.coachburt.com or find him on facebook as MICHEALBURT.

    Steve Mellor on Transferring High-Level Athletic Traits to Non-Athletic Careers

    Steve Mellor on Transferring High-Level Athletic Traits to Non-Athletic Careers

    What key traits make a person successful inside and outside of athletics? And how can athletes find an identity outside of their sport?
    My conversation with LSU assistant swim coach Steve Mellor addresses these questions, as well as the important relationship between an athlete and coach. In addition, we discuss how parents can encourage their students to speak up, in a respectful manner, in the pressure-filled collegiate sports environment.
    I’m thrilled to have Steve Mellor on the show today because he has deep experience as both a high-level competitor and coach. Mellor began his illustrious swimming career in his home country, England, where he competed at an international level before making his way to the States to swim for North Carolina State in 2005.
    During his time as a collegiate swimmer, Mellor racked in an astonishing list of achievements.
    Set two NC State swim records — one for the 200-back and another for the 400 IM
    Received All - ACC honors from 2007 to 2009
    Qualified for the NCAA three times, with a top - 18 finish in the 200-back in 2008
    Achieved a world-ranked status in 2005 and 2008, being named in the top 50 for the 200-
    meter backstroke
    Competed as a finalist in 2008’s US Open
    Mellor has now served as LSU’s Assistant Swim Coach for 5 years, where he’s helped guide a number of student-athletes to SEC and NCAA Championships.
    You’re going to love Mellor’s unique, dual insights as both an athlete and a coach, and if you want more of what you heard today, go check out Steve’s podcast Career Competitor. It offers personal interviews that help reveal shared traits among competitors in high-level sports, and how those traits can be applied to careers outside of athletic competition.
