Mental Performance

Training your mental game can help you reach your potential

Mental Performance

Mental Performance is the application and development of mental skills, attitudes, perspectives, strategies, and processes that lead to optimal performance, well-being, and personal growth.

 
 
Why is Mental Training Important? 

Most athletes report that up 90% of success in competition is determined by psychological factors. 

 

An increasing number of coaches and athletes are recognizing that talent alone won't lead to success. It is equally important to know how to train effectively, play as a team, and perform under pressure

Mental Performance Consultants work to develop areas of an athlete's mental game, such as:

  • focus

  • resilience

  • composure

  • motivation

  • self-awareness

  • communication

  • leadership

  • teamwork

How is Mental Training delivered? 

 

Individual Sessions:

Individual mental training sessions typically consists of the following:
 

  • initial session and needs assessment 

  • custom mental training/education programming tailored for the athlete

  • ongoing mental skills development, monitoring, and evaluation 

  • performance observation in competition (if possible)


Multiple sessions (3+) are recommended to provide adequate time for new skills to be learned, applied, and refined. Individual sessions can also be delivered through Skype.

Team Sessions & Workshops: 
 

Team sessions and workshops are fun and interactive ways for athletes to learn mental skills. Group exercises and discussions can create an environment where athletes learn from each other. 

  • individual mental skills: 

    • goal setting, visualization/imagery, focusing skills, motivation, emotion regulation, energy management, mindfulness, pre-competition routines, competition debriefing. 

  • team skills: 

    • communication, leadership, team building/chemistry

Workshops topics can also be delivered upon request. 

 

Sessions are commonly delivered in a classroom and/or practice facility.
