Sports Psychology Skills to Perform Better

  1. Practice giving the most mental and physical effort you can as a skill of its own!

  2. Set realistic, challenging, short-term, specific, performance-related goals!

  3. Focus on the specific details of each task (task orientation) and not on the outcome!

  4. Be positive with yourself and others, and throw out all negativity!

  5. Visualize successfully executing the details of each task repeatedly until your mind knows it!

  6. Learn meditation techniques for increasing self-confidence, reducing anxiety, gaining control and quickly recovering from mistakes!

These skills are just a few of the skills that are discussed in sports psychology. You may find that other skills are more or less important, but it would appear that most sport-specific "mistakes" in play involve one of the above skills listed. Add your own ideas to the curriculum.

Our Mission
To bring positive change to the general school curriculum and sports programming by:
 •  Building a positive school environment
 •  Enhancing emotional health

"I didn't know my mind was so powerful."
