Today is our final look at the post from Inside Youth Sport about the importance of keeping your head up in team sports, and it’s all about preventing injury.
Head Up to Avoid Injury
You must keep your head up to avoid injury. In all team sports collisions between players (intentional and unintentional) are part of the game. To lessen their impact and to avoid getting hurt, you must be aware of player movements and recognize potentially dangerous situations before they occur.
So if you want to play your best, and not be sidelined by injury, keep your head up!
While the above from Inside Youth Sports appears to be stating the obvious how many times do you see players, young and old, running with their heads down. Why? A lot of the time it is just a habit that they never got out of, or at least never trained properly to keep their heads up to avoid injury, take advantage of scoring opportunities, etc. So how do you train a player to keep their heads up and become more confident so that when the pressure is on in a game situation that they keep their heads up naturally? If you are struggling as a coach for the answer to this question then you need to use Chin Up Goggles!
