Over the past several weeks Delta-based Alongside You in partnership with 140 Sports has been putting on a series of webinars with the Thompson Rivers University Athletic Department. Softball BC connected CMSA and the groups have extended us the invite to attend as well as provided links to view the previous two sessions based on the positive feedback they have received. With this past week being Bell Let’s Talk Day and all of us dealing with many mental and emotional challenges, day to day and in sport, we felt it would be beneficial to share with our membership some great resources we’ve come across.
This week, they will be offering a webinar (about 60 minutes) focused on Growth Mindset. It's so easy to have a fixed mindset, especially when we're stressed. "I'm just not smart enough." "I'm just not as good at this as everyone else." "I can't do this." Carol Dweck pioneered the research on fixed versus growth mindset, and it can be beneficial to understand for both school staff and students. In this workshop, we'll look at how we are not just a sum of our innate, natural abilities (fixed) and that we can improve our talents and skills through effort, good teaching, and persistence, as Dweck suggests (growth). This will help us be better at supporting our players, volunteers, and families, particularly during great stress.
