Courses in ASP (Applied Sports Psychology)

Great athletes are not just physically strong, but mentally strong – particularly when facing competition. This course looks at the psychological factors that affect sport performance, and introduces you to 10 key concepts used in the field.

By the end of this program, the goal is that you will be able to work effectively with athletes in a one-on-one setting and inspire the teams you coach to new heights and levels of achievement.

You will receive my system for working with athletes and teams (or any “performer”) on the mental aspects of sports that I have developed over the last 20 plus years.

The peak performance coaching system is an eclectic one, based on many disciplines and mentors who taught me. I draw my work primarily from the fields of psychology, sports psychology, and physical education (Kinesiology), coaching science, motor learning, and counselling.

My goal is to simplify the concepts in sports psychology and teach you how to apply them with athletes. Your ability to help your athletes apply what you teach them is critical to their success. Dr Patrick Cohn – course author.

The main areas of mental game coaching that I teach in the course include:

  1. The phases of peak performance coaching
  2. Doing mental game assessments (AMAP, TCAP)
  3. Improving athletes’ mental game for performance enhancement.
  4. Improving practice efficiency and practice schedules
  5. Teaching game plans or strategies
  6. Improving team dynamics and communication
  7. Helping Coaches define and write a Coaching Philosophy
  8. Imparting leadership principles to Captains
