This week on The Hamilton Review Podcast, we welcome Jerry Lynch to the show. Dr. Lynch is a sports psychologist and the author of seventeen books, including “Let Them Play: The Power and Joy of Mindful Sports Parenting.”
In this conversation, Dr. Lynch discusses the relationship of parents and their kids surrounding a positive sports culture. In the world of hyper competitive sports beginning at a very young age, this is a must listen conversation for parents and coaches.
Jerry first learned about extraordinary performance and excellence as a nationally ranked competitive athlete sponsored by Nike, running world class times from 5,000 meters to the
marathon, setting an American record in the half-marathon, winning a National Championship and many other races against athletes half his age. He took what he learned about himself and
life from his competitive days and parlayed it into a dynamic successful career helping athletes and coaches in all sports to use his performance and leadership strategies to up their game
and discover the best version of themselves. To give a clearer sense about his professional life as an author, leader, coach and mentor, Jerry combines Eastern thought, Native American tradition, and western psychology to help create mental strength, spiritual dexterity, inspiration and empowerment not only for competitive events but for self-awareness, confidence and how to be the best version of yourself each day. Dr. Lynch has been recognized as one of the top five in his profession nationwide. He has worked with teams, coaches and athletes in the NBA, Pro Lacrosse, Major League Soccer, with men’s and women’s basketball, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, golf and other sports at the universities of North Carolina, Duke, Maryland, California, Syracuse, Stanford, Harvard and
Middlebury. In the past 30 years alone, he has help guide 115 championship teams, 55 Final Fours resulting in 39 National Championships at the collegiate and professional levels.
