Achieving Peak Performance

Sport psychology theories and mental training strategies to enhance focus, confidence, composure, mental preparation, and team cohesion have proven to increase performance in sports, business and life. Important elements of sport psychology aim to:

1. Improve focus and deal with distractions by helping athlete to stay focused on the present moment and let go of results.

2. Enhance confidence in athletes who have doubts. If players maintain doubts prior to or during their performance, this indicates low self-confidence.

3. Develop coping skills to deal with mistakes and errors. Players with high or strict expectations have trouble remaining confident and focused after making a mistake. It is important to address these expectations to enhance confidence and composure.

4. Develop game-specific strategies and game plans to help athletes mentally prepare for competition. Routines help enhance performance for self-paced task in sports such as baseball, and football.

5. Help teams develop communication skills and cohesion. A major part of sports psychology and mental training is helping teams improve cohesion and communication. The more a team works as a unit, the better the results for all involved.
