After meeting with the coaching staff to assess what the immediate needs are I will speak with the team and athlete(s) to get a sense of what they believe their needs are followed by a brief retrospective of my background, who I’ve worked with, and why I believe they can benefit from strengthening their mental game. This is then followed up by observations of practices and games on an as needed basis.
As a coach, you and your staff will learn how to take your program to the next level by integrating applied sport psychology strategies into your team and sports environment. Topics covered are tailored to meet the specific needs of your program, with direct follow up by me by observing practices as well as performances. I will be honest and tell you what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear.
“Sports can unite a group of people from different backgrounds, all working together to achieve a common goal. And even if they fall short, sharing that journey is an experience they’ll never forget. It can teach some of the most fundamental and important human values: dedication, teamwork, perseverance, and hard work. It also teaches us how to handle our success and cope with our failure. So, perhaps the greatest glory of sport is that it teaches us so much about life itself.” – Ahmad Rashad
