Jim Thompson is the founder and Executive Director for Positive Coaching Alliance.

Review:

Jim Thompson's latest work offers compelling, concise concepts that empower young athletes to elevate their game through a combination of personal ritual and selfless reflection. The teachings within Elevating Your Game are directed primarily to the athlete, but this book should be at the top of the syllabus for parents, as well. No one understands the cultural obstacles that face developing young athletes better than Jim, and no one offers more valuable perspective on how to overcome them.
