BSF is launching a new monthly speaker series for athletes, coaches and parents.
First up in the series:
Mental tactics alongside physical training can become one of the biggest factors that influences ways in which athletes make decisions, approach training days and most importantly, how our race days develop because of our psyche. Sports and performance psychology is a trending phrase, but most people don't understand, nor do they know how to apply the concepts in direct relation to their everyday lives. That is where people like Emily come into action. This session will focus on simple mental skills tactics that athletes and coaches can use in their everyday lives and then transfer to training and racing. Find your own Individual Zone of Optimal Functioning!
