[My son’s] experience with Mindful Sports has been amazing!  Working with the Mindful Sports Team, [my son] has grown as an athlete and a teammate and has improved his ability to get through frustration on the field.  Mindful Sports meets each kid at their own level and guides them to be better.  It teaches how to strive to improve and win while also building a positive, supportive and inclusive team environment with positive skills for problem solving and self-regulation.

• How to use mindfulness skills off the field

Kids should wear athletic clothes and bring an extra snack and a water bottle. Kids are welcome to bring their own athletic equipment, but all equipment is also provided.
