Sport Mind Workshops

Coaching the Sport Mind to Success

The Sport Mind Workshops have been presented to various schools and clubs and offer the opportunity to enhance mental skills for athletes, coaches and parents. Although there are specific programmes and learning units, the workshops are tailor-made to suit the need of your club, team or organisation. The workshops and talks are practical and will equip you with tools and techniques that are effective and easy to use.


Danny DamonThe “Sport Mind Workshops” is a fantastic opportunity to learn and understand the importance of mental preparation in sport and how you can use your mind to improve performance. Not only gives it a new perspective on preparation for competitive sport but also how to deal with competition stress and anxiety. As a coach I have learned how to positive talk to athletes to inspire, motivate and support in training and competitions. Coaches need to deal with their own stresses, anxiety of athletes, expectations of parents and so much more and the sport mind workshop taught me more on how to deal with all of these challenges.
