Tips to Build Confidence!

CONFIDENCE: You must believe in yourself if you expect others to believe in you. – Coach John Wooden

Our 100 Mile Club participants are taught to have confidence by believing in themselves, trusting their journey, and not comparing their success with others. Students gain the ability to control their own motivation, behavior, and social environment by applying their confidence in their daily life. Our mission is to empower students and families to achieve a healthy lifestyle through physical activity.    

Join Ready, Set, Gold! for monthly workout videos and important social and emotional learning topics.

3 Tips to Build Confidence!


  • Praise effort. Offer praise for effort, progress, and attitude. This type of praise helps them work toward goals.


  • Focus on strengths. Focus more on strengths than weaknesses. Kids feel better about themselves when they understand their strengths.


  • Let kids help and give. Allow your students to support and help each other toward their goals. Helping builds confidence and a good feeling for kind acts. 

Having daily opportunities to practice confidence helps kids grow. Every child is different, and confidence may come easier to some kids than others. But a child’s confidence can GROW!!
