SM&OC - The Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics Group has partnered with NCYSA to offer educational articles on sports medicine! ZZZ's can help get a W? Sleep has a huge impact on your performance! Many think sleep is just the opposite of being awake. Not true!! In fact, while you are sleeping, your body is busy repairing itselfboth mentally and physically. Our nervous system needs time to tune its connections. Our cells show an increased production of proteins while we are asleep. This promotes growth, tissue healing, and builds your immune system to fight off illness. Lack of the proper sleep will cause a soccer player to have less than optimal concentration, focus, and may slow down healing of injuries. How many ZZZ's do I need? There are many stages you go through during a night's sleep. Each stage is important and corresponds to different functions. In fact, during the deep sleep stage is where the release of the growth hormone increases in teenagers. So, a lack of sleep could theoretically lead to diminished growth. People need different amounts of sleep based on age, amount of exercise, etc. Experts agree that teenagers need NINE hours of sleep a night. That means if you get up for school at 6:30 a.m., then bedtime should be at 9:30 a.m. I can hear it now, "Yeah, right!" However, the more serious you wish to take your performance in soccer, not to mention your performance in the classroom, the more serious you should take your sleep. I would highly recommend the full nine hours around times of frequent training and competition. As soccer players, you must be focused both on and off the field to obtain success. Tips for a good night sleep To get the best night sleep so you can perform your best on the soccer field, follow the following tips for a good night's sleep:

yourself and then try to catch up. each day. However, exercising soon before bedtime makes it difficult to fall asleep.

EXERCISE: Try to exercise 20-30 minutes

AVOID SLEEP-INHIBITING SUBSTANCES: Avoid soft drinks with caffeine, tobacco products, chocolate and medications. RELAX BEFORE BED: A bath, reading, music, or some other relaxing activity will help prepare for sleep. Of course, nothing gets you tired like homework! wake up when the sun is up. It may not be possible during certain times of the year or with school schedules. However, it helps the brain "turn on." fall asleep, don't just lie there. Get up and read or listen to music until you can fall asleep.

SLEEP UNTIL SUNLIGHT: If possible,

DON'T LIE AWAKE IN BED: If you can't

CONTROL YOUR ROOM TEMPERATURE: Maintain a comfortable room temperature since your body loses some of its ability to adjust itself during deep sleep. Extreme temperatures may disrupt sleep. SEE YOUR DOCTOR IF YOUR SLEEPING PROBLEM CONTINUES: If these tips don't work and you are struggling to get good sleep and feel awake, alert, and ready to play, then contact your doctor for advice.

SET A SCHEDULE: Go to bed and get up at

a set time each day. Disrupting this cycle can cause insomnia. It is not good to deprive

From US Youth Soccer and Responsible Sports

Positive Coaching Alliance and Responsible Sports often refer to the "ELM Tree of Mastery," where ELM stands for Effort, Learning and Mistakes. Players progress toward mastery of their sport as long as they exert maximum effort, continually learn and bounce back from their inevitable mistakes. some level of progress and success. An important notion in these intermediate goals is the "Just-Right Challenge" as covered in Deborah Stipek's book, Motivated Minds. A group of children was given a pre-test on their skill level with respect to 13 different puzzles. Left alone with the puzzles and asked to Of course, it is easier said than done for play- choose one, all the children picked a puzzle ers and coaches to live by this philosophy. We just one level higher than their capability. Apall want to point to positive results, but often plied to sports, a series of "Just-Right Chalthey are slow to arrive. So how do we maintain lenges" can help players put in place, step-bythe level of effort required ­ even in the face of step, the skills needed to achieve the desired poor results ­ until a player succeeds? results. One key is to reward unsuccessful effort. That strikes many as counterintuitive. But it is essential to keeping the player persistent. What else would keep players pushing toward improvement despite the physical, mental and emotional challenges of repeated failed efforts? When you as a Responsible Coach see players trying hard, yet failing to make the play, you can reinforce their effort by noticing out loud how hard they were trying: "Danny, it still didn't end up the way we wanted, but I saw how intent you were on technique. Your feet were planted just right. I know the results will come over time." "Over time" is a key concept. Just as players require repetition to learn how to execute, coaches must consistently repeat positive reinforcement. That way, the player fully believes the coach values effort more than results and the player feels free to adopt the same values. Along the way, it may help to establish intermediate goals so that player and coach sense Another way to reinforce effort is through a targeted, symbolic reward. After a practice or game you can honor players for making the desired efforts. For example, you might give the "dirty shirt award" to the player showing the most hustle. It's important that this award has no great value beyond symbolizing the player's effort. That keeps the player focused on the value of the effort itself, as opposed to the award's monetary value. Even if the player never achieves the desired result you pursued together, he or she will have the lasting life lesson of the value of effort and a tangible reminder of the coach who imparted that life lesson.
