Sports Psychology – Playing Against a Weaker Team

Sports psychology tips for playing against a weaker team.

I am sure you watched Olympic Games on TV and saw underdog teams surprising the clear favorites.  One example of this was when the US men’s hockey team beat a clear favorite, the Canadian hockey team in the preliminary round.

How to play against a weaker team?

1. Do not take an underdog team too lightly or set expectations about who should win.

2. Always put a real effort to design a game plan or strategy.

3.  Get excited and be passionate to compete. Without intensity you are not able to focus 100% to the game, which leads to bad performance.
