MINDFUL SPORT ESSENTIALS
Eight Week Program for Schools & Clubs.
Sport is played above the shoulders. We all know this because we can play brilliantly one day, and poorly the next. Our basic ability doesn't change. The problem is simple. Technique and talent are overrated. To master our game we need to be calm and composed, quietly confident and clever in decision making.
These are the skills and practices of Mindful Sport, and you can develop them as part of your School or Club Sport program with a tailored Mindful Sport Essentials Program designed by three times Australian Olympic Team Chief Psychologist, Graham Winter.
(Please note that a sport-specific version of the program is available for cricket)
