Mental Preparation
  • Quality Preparation
    Ready to Compete
  • Competitive Follow Thru
    Get the Job Done
  • Accurate Self Evaluation React to
    Results Charles Maher, Ph.D.

20
Mental Preparation Training Relaxation
  • Stress is anything that causes energy to be
    expended-recovery is anything that allows energy
    to be recaptured-balancing stress and recovery is
    fundamental to becoming a tough competitor
  • Example teaching relaxation techniques to a
    lacrosse goalie with excessive tension divided
    attention.

21
Mental Preparation TrainingImagery/Visualization
  • If the scene that you are perceiving has a high
    level of personal meaning for you, then you will
    tend to imprint it more intensively later you
    will be able to recall it more clearly and
    completely
  • Example low confidence in a ice hockey goalie

D.M. MD
22
Mental Preparation TrainingFocus Attention
  • Focus on the positive not the negative, the
    present not the past, the process not the result,
    the target not an image of the self
  • Example divided attention in a platform diver
    and level 8 gymnast.

D.M. MD
23
Mental PreparationAffirmations Positive Self
Talk
  • The mental message will dictate the physical
    action and help determine its quality
  • Example introducing positive self-talk
    professional golfer whose recent performance had
    been inconsistent

D.M. MD
24
Mental Preparation Goal Setting
  • Goals set without commitment are wasted-goals
    serve you, expectations serve others
  • Example reducing expectations and establishing
    realistic practice and game goals in a high
    school soccer player

D.M. MD
25
Mental PreparationPre-competitive Routine
  • The typical athlete goes all-out during
    competition. Thats easy. The exceptional athlete
    goes all-out to prepare for competition. Thats
    difficult.
  • Example developing a pre-practice routine in a
    mistake-prone quarterback and a game routine in
    distractible
    starting pitcher.

D.M. MD
26
Mental PreparationIntensity Regulation
  • The difference between the clutch player the
    choke player is that the clutch player gets his
    state of relaxation and intensity level under
    control before the action
  • Example controlling competitive aggression and
    mistakes in a defensive back

D.M. MD
27
Mental PreparationBuilding Self-Confidence
  • The greatest obstacle on the road to confidence
    is fear-the successes we have achieved in the
    past are more real than the failures we fear in
    the future
  • Example developing consistency through
    visualization, positive self-talk and body focus
    in a special teams football player
