Course Description

The Mental Edge: Applied Sports Psychology for Coaches is the study and application of psychological strategies specifically designed to help athletes improve learning and performance. Students will investigate human behavior patterns in sports between weeks one and four. In weeks five and six, they will study the techniques of coaching a specific sport of your choice. In weeks seven and eight you will apply psychological training strategies to the sport you selected. This process involves the understanding and use of many psychological tools. The effective application of these tools requires both practice and integration with your knowledge of specific skill instruction, meaning, tools such as goal setting, behavior modification, stress management, and effective auto-suggestion make up the psychological 'building blocks' of peak performance. Learning and achievement require your understanding of how these tools work in harmony with physical skill training. Here you will learn to apply a Psychological Skills Training (PST) program to your sport of choice.
