The Importance of Swag in Athletics

Urban Dictionary defines Swag as “the way in which you carry yourself. Swag is made up of your overall confidence, style, and demeanor.” I will reiterate. Swag is confidence. And confidence is power in the athletics world.

This is probably why sport psychology seems to be taking off more these days. There is a business in helping athletes not only get an edge, but learning how to maintain that edge. Aside from natural talent, swag is the most powerful asset an athlete has at his or her disposal. Here are some helpful tips.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I have several athletes that have a lack of swag, when, by all measure they should. Would you care to share some of the different positive imagery you use? Is it a general image, like Lightning McQueen in Cars…SPEED!!, or is it several different images for the different parts of your throw?

    I think you guys have a lot of swag… are you willing to share some of this. I would like to stare down and intimidate people, but I have a problem smiling.

    Great article, Kibwe. See you in outdoors!
