Sports Psychology is dedicated to the training, through individual or group interventions, of management staff, referees, coaches, instructors, and athletes in individual or team sports. The sports psychologist, more commonly referred to as the Sport Mental Coach, does not provide services concerning advice or technical and tactical strategies, but plays a well-defined role: that of an expert on psychological and psycho-pedagogical issues vis-à-vis all members of the Sports Society.
The Mental Coach is particularly concerned with: coaching and enhancing athletes’ mental skills, such as that of setting goals, managing performance anxiety, and maintaining one’s motivation. The Mental Coach is also used as a figure who can improve communication and dialogue between managers and staff and/or between coaches and athletes.
