We teach athletes how to sharpen their focus for competition. Maintaining focus for success involves a complex process of integrating sport specific relevant cues and quieting distractions. We teach athletes how to find flexibility in their focus so they can sharpen it at will on their field of play. Some important areas of focus include:
- Your opponent
- The score
- Your Teammates
Learning how to be aware of shifts in your attention and creating cues to help bring yourself back into the game is critical to success. There are many distractions that can get in the way of maintaining focus, both internally and externally.
We help athletes reduce distractions that impede performance. Some of these distractions include:
- Crowd noise
