Course Description

The mental aspect of human performance is beginning to get more attention… and rightly so. While often viewed as separate areas, the physical and mental sides of performance are intertwined, and both substantially contribute to one’s athletic performance.

Due to the importance of the mental aspect of performance, over a series of 12 modules, this course takes a deep dive into multiple important areas of sports psychology so that you can best advise your athletes on how to increase their performance.

The completion of this course fulfills 50% of the UESCA recertification requirement!
