Whenever I play for my college team I suddenly stop having fun and perform even worse. How can I change this?

by pm_me_dank_maymayz

I guess my problem is that whenever people expect a certain standard from me and when I know that my mistakes will affect my teammates, I stop thinking about playing the sport I love and just start thinking about how I don't want to let my teammates down.

I get less confident in my throws and less confident in my abilities and in turn make more mistakes which makes me feel bad for letting my teammates down.

I know I love playing the game but it seems like whenever I play for my team its as if I just stop having fun and the pressure starts getting to me.
Anyone every get this mindset or have some tips against it?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

---part of "playing the sport you love".....IS trying real hard to not "let your teammates down"

the two go hand in hand. loving the sport IS working on the three fundamentals(running, throwing and catching) so that you minimize "letting your teammates down".

now....get out there and HAVE FUN!

If you throw a turnover....for the love of the sport...try HARD AS HELL ON D to get the disc back for your team!

accept the pressure. use it as an energy to play harder.

ya know what....if you didn't feel the pressure....it would mean that you don't care.

someone repost my reply to reddit for this guy!
thanks

Totally with you on this. When I played in an A league, my enjoyment went waaaaay down b/c there was just a lot of pressure and attitudes coming from certain teammates. It's too bad because the spirit of this game is supposed to be unlike others.
