Throughout your sporting career there is pressure to perform to a high standard, cope with frequent challenges and live up to high expectations.

  • Being mentally prepared, staying focused and not letting emotions detract your objectives are essential attributes to being a successful sports person. At times it is easy to forget that you have a life like everyone else and face the same challenges that ‘everyday’ people face.
  • From childhood we are encouraged to achieve to a very high standard in the competitive world of sport, and throughout adulthood the expectations and demands can become greater.

Coaches, Trainers and Agents

  • As a Coach/Trainer and Agent, you are expected to focus on the performance, physical well-being and training of an individual or team. However, there may be a time when you notice the emotional struggles of your sporting individual.
