Stay tuned for an exciting new development! In the very near future, I will be launching a new product – an information-filled CD (maybe 2!) and workbook on the mental game of cheerleading competition preparation.
Many elite athletes work with sports psychologists to improve their performances, so why not cheerleaders? Many pro athletes in most sports, including baseball, football, basketball, and soccer either work directly with sports psychologists or have coaches who are well versed in sports psychology strategies. And virtually all Olympic teams have a sports psychologist on board.
Seems to me it’s time cheerleaders reap the benefits of what sports psychology has to offer!
In high level sports it is estimated that 50 – 90% of success can be attributed to mental factors such as confidence, composure, and concentration, to name a few. These are known collectively as mental toughness. Mental toughness skills can be strengthened and taught in order to ensure consistently and excellence in performance. That’s what I do.
I will be offering excerpts from the CD in future posts so be sure to check in regularly and please feel free to ask questions!
