Coach Lindsey - LICSW
With combined experience of being a former high school rowing coach and years as a clinical social worker in high schools, Lindsey brings a uniquely skilled perspective to Ready Set Row. Adolescence can be a period of profound physical strength and growth for athletes, however, from a neurological development perspective, the rate and focus of the brain's maturation can create a discrepancy that can potentially cause a rift between an athlete's potential and their performance. Lindsey loves helping and teaching athletes how to utilize tools that will help strengthen an athlete's mindset, including, but not limited to resilience, distress tolerance and the ability to refocus self-defeating patterns of thinking. Lindsey's years of experience have taught her there is not one method to teach these skills to all; Lindsey works to learn about each student athlete first, incorporating their experiences into the plan of how to best drill these new skills.
Lindsey is well aware that our mindset and mental-skills need constant nourishment throughout our lifespan and it is never easy, however, learning early can help young athletes be their best now and throughout life.
