Sports Psychology Part time

The Sports Psychology course is an important add on skill for Sports Coaches and is aimed at individuals who are working with teams or athletes, as well as those who work in the leisure industry.

The Sports Psychology course is designed to equip learners with the skills and knowledge to change behavior in a sporting context. It will enable participants to develop an understanding of the psychological principles that underpin coaching techniques.

The 2 key areas of interest in sports psychology are:

Understanding how psychology can be applied to improve motivation and performance and

Understanding how sports and athletics can improve mental health and overall well-being

These two areas encompass a range of topics including:

Motivation to persist and achieve

Psychological considerations in sport injury and rehabilitation

Counseling techniques with athletes

Assessing talent

Exercise adherence and well-being

Self-perceptions related to achieving

Expertise in sport

Youth sport

Performance enhancement and self-regulation techniques

While popular perceptions often presume that Sports Psychology is only concerned with professional athletics, this specialty area includes a broad range of scientific, clinical and applied topics involving sports and exercise.
