What is Sport Psychology?

The study of behavior factors that influence and are influenced by active participation in sport, exercise, and physical activity is called sports psychology.

Psychology in sport works with the mental aspects of sport performance such as improving mental toughness, regaining composure, increasing confidence or refining focus. Coaches focus on the strategic and physical components of competition and technical skills, however, sports psychology professionals strive to enhance the minds of athletes to help identify triggers that negatively impact performance. As a result athletes are more equipped to handle the pressures of competition, overcome negative thoughts or beliefs, enter the zone more easily and remain focused for longer periods of time. All of these skills lead to improved performance and a stronger, champion mindset!
