Understanding Sports Psychology

Sports Psychology is the study of human behavior within the sporting environment. It is based upon empirical research, analyzing the effectiveness of theories and interventions used to enhance performance. Mental training and mental game coaching is a segment of sports psychology. The focus is to enable athletes to achieve peak performance and reach their full potential, through the teaching of mental strategies and skills. Mental game coaching for athletes is geared towards breaking through mental barriers, and developing specific mental strengths and skills, ultimately elevating overall performance and success.

At Heads Up we believe you cannot separate the mental from the physical, when it comes to performance. We are committed to helping our athletes develop the ideal mental mindset, enabling them to get the most out of their physical training and ability, and ultimately perform at their best.
