In endurance-based, high intensity sports the focus on the psychological elements of the game can take a backseat to physical conditioning. However, maintaining a mental edge and a superior level of focus and concentration in basketball can be the difference between winning and losing. Whether it is recognizing a play developing or executing a certain formation, the athletes that maintain a mental edge through the duration of the contest are that much closer to reaching their goals.
Additionally, psychological preparation produces better technical proficiency and smarter expenditure of energy— high-stress minutes during games are more physically taxing than ones characterized by a calm focus. By pairing the physical and the mental sides of the sport, both sides build off of each other in a symbiotic relationship that will take your game to the next level.
