What’s Your Game?
- Distance Running: Distance running requires that athletes be in tune with both their body and mind. To be successful, an athlete must regulate his or her pace throughout the race while monitoring for physical and mental fatigue.
- Basketball: 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 your take your game to the next level.
- Baseball: Peak performance in baseball requires a unique set of mental and physical tools. Professional baseball players understand what is needed to excel and are always working to improve their mental game.
- Fencing: Fencing requires athletes to maintain a high level of focus. Tuning out internal and external distractions can be difficult. We teach athletes to find their optimal level of energy for competitions as well as how to shift their attention to the right things at the right time.
- Golf: With so much time in between action to think about your last shot or worry about your next one, the mental pressure of playing golf is something that every athlete grapples with from time to time. We teach golfers to manage pressure and find their best swing by giving them psychological tools that are durable and can withstand the heat of competition.
- Martial Arts: Fighting is the ultimate challenge, an integral part of human history, often symbolizing noble traits like courage and determination. Competitive fighting triggers our fundamental and ancient need for survival, our deep unspoken desire to remain unharmed, on our feet, and see your rival on the ground and defeated.
- Soccer: Maintaining a mental edge and a superior level of focus and concentration in soccer 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.
- Volleyball: Volleyball lends itself to the implementation of sport psychology skills because of the natural breaks between points. Volleyball games are often won or lost by a couple of points, and it is often the team that can string together several points in a row (or break the other team’s run) that comes out on top.
