Help Your Athletes Refocus Quickly in Games
In “Sessions with Doc,” Dr. Patrick Cohn answers your sports psychology and mental training questions about How To Refocus Quickly When Distracted.
Do you get distracted by simple stuff when you go compete?
I’m going to teach you one really basic but important skill to help you focus your best in competition.
Today I’m previewing one of my popular programs called “The Focused Athlete” CD and workbook program within the Confident Athlete CD and workbook series.
Here’s the question Dr. Patrick Cohn answers this week:
How can you help your athletes refocus quickly during games and practices?
Want to learn more about how to help kids boost their focusing skills?
We’ve got a great program for you called “The Focused Sports Kid: A 7-Day Plan for Boosting Concentration and Success.”
The Focused Sports Kid is a 7-day focusing plan for sports parents and young athletes that helps kids overcome distractions that can hurt kids’ performance in youth sports.
The Focused Sports Kid is two programs in one. There’s a manual and CD for parents/coaches, and a workbook/CD for young athletes.
In addition to learning how to identify their distractions and deal with them, young athletes learn about how and why to focus on sports-specific “performance cues” that will help them feel more confident and excel in sports. Parents/coaches also learn about these all-important performance cues and why they should help kids focus on them.
What are parents and coaches saying about our program?
“My Boys Succeeded! We Beat A Team No one Could Beat!”
“I read your report and prepared a one-page summary for my team. I asked the team to attend a 10am training session on Saturday before the final on Sunday. (I told parents) they must obtain the one-page summary handout from me and ask a parent to read it to them until they understood what it meant…My boys succeeded! We beat a team that no one could beat during the year, that was coached by a former professional player that had sons of former Professional players in the team and as a result of believing in themselves, they won. In my humble opinion , I look beyond the game and hope the kids have learned a lesson in life that you really can do almost anything if you put your mind to it. We salute you and the wonderful work you do.”
