Benefits of Player Journals

Each of our club's players will be given a Player Journal to complement the Club Handbook distributed last month. This is a tool to help our players improve their psychological approach to developing as soccer players.

Rich Kent, an associate professor at the University of Maine and former youth soccer coach, has advocated for the benefits of athletes maintaining a journal about their playing experiences, and below is a link to a July 2014 Portland Press Herald about the competitive benefits writing has yielded for Maine skier Sam Morse.

PPH:

“The journals provide benefits to learning, opportunities to reflect,” said [University of Maine professor Richard] Kent, who used some of [skier Sam] Morse’s passages in his research. “These notebooks allow for a psychological advantage. “When you think about the computerized work going on in training and the testing being done, writing is one more component that gives you an edge.”
