The Town Book Store will be hosting an Author Meet & Greet for Cranford resident Nick Molinaro on Saturday,
February 22nd from 2:00-4:00 PM. He will be talking about and signing copies of his book, Beyond the
Scoreboard. With 70% of youths leaving organized sports by the age of thirteen, losing out on the physical, social,
and emotional benefits derived from athletic participation, it's time we get serious about our approach to parenting,
coaching and leading them through an active and physically engaged life. From what to say after a big loss to help a
young athlete maintain their passion to how to really achieve a growth-mindset lifestyle, this new book Beyond the
Scoreboard does just that. Dr. Nick Molinaro, licensed psychologist with a specialty in performance and sport
psychology, decodes how an athlete’s environment can either positively impact their mental game or contribute to burnout, resentment, and even physical injury. Informed by Dr. Nick’s 35 years of experience working with everyone from Olympic Gold medalists to X-Gamers to PGA Tour participants, Beyond the Scoreboard, co-authored by Celeste Romano, works as the definitive playbook for parents, coaches and athletes seeking ways to deal with pressure, expectations, overcoming failure, and achieving success while still enjoying sports.
Dr. Nick Molinaro has worked in the arena of performance psychology for over 30 years. His client list ranges from Olympic Gold and Silver medalists on the US Gymnastics and Ski teams, PGA and LPGA Tours competitors, NASCAR drivers, NBA and NFL players, all the way to middle-school aged children taking part in intramural sports.
