Get players to buy in. That’s one of our biggest goals, right? But it’s trickier than it seems, because you can’t force anyone to buy in to anything. They have to want it themselves.
 
So how to do you get a team of 11-25+ young women to all buy in to one team goal? That’s what we discuss today with the Oregon Ducks head coach Melyssa Lombardi!
 
From team building to building relationships, today’s episode has a lot of great nuggets for you to take back to your team!
 

Want even more activities to get your players to buy in?

That’s what our pen and paper activities, challenges and drills are for! Whether you’re looking for a quick win to boost your team’s buy-in or you want to go all-in and battle any culture killers… We’ve got something for you!

That’s all for this week! Hope so see you back here next week! get players to buy in

Phenomenal information

As a new coach that believes in the mental game being so important, the podcasts and group discussions online have been amazing. Thank you ladies so much! Just knowing that the day to day struggles and doubts are felt by so many others has been remarkably reassuring. Thank you for what you are giving to others in the sport.

5 Star Podcasts!

I love listening to your podcasts while out on a run or on my way to work. They are focused and give me one or two pieces of inspiration to focus on with my team for the week. I have implemented a few key words (like "supportive") and have gotten huge returns from it! Keep up the great work!!

Mental Toughness

As a softball coach and a teacher, I appreciate all of the strategies and advice that Melanie shares each week! She is so inspiring, knowledgeable about the mental game, and willing to help in any way! One tip that really resonates with me is learning how to understand which things in life you are able to control, and what is out of your control. I teach these skills on the field and in the classroom! Thank you for all of the support and encouragement!

I love being part of the Mental Sweet Spot because it helps me think outside of the box to help our team grow mentally. I’ve noticed with the techniques and advice from Melanie and others in her Facebook Group I’ve help my team not only grow mentally but athletically as well. Mental toughness will help your team on the field as well and Melanie’s advice has proven that time and time again.
