Understanding and applying psychology within youth sport settings is key to maximising young athletes' enjoyment, wellbeing, and sporting performance. Written by a team of leading international researcher-practitioners, this book is the first to offer an evidence-based introduction to the theory and practice of sport psychology for children and young athletes. It provides practical strategies and guidance for those working in or researching youth sport, demonstrating how to integrate sport psychology effectively in a variety of youth sport contexts.

With real-life case studies that demonstrate psychological theory put into practice, it discusses a wide spectrum of issues faced by young athletes and recommends the best approaches to addressing them. Key topics covered include:

the cognitive, social, and physical development of young athletes

optimising fun, motivation, and self-confidence

enhancing young athletes' relationships with coaches, parents, and peers

managing stress, injuries, and transitions

effectively developing talent and long-term engagement in sport

encouraging organisational culture change.

The most up-to-date and authoritative guide to sport psychology for young people, this is essential reading for anyone working in youth sport.
