Parent Information Session - Koncium Mental Training

How can I support my child/student-athlete with their mental game?

Does your youth-athlete ever perform to lesser capacity than they are capable of? Does stress, anxiety, and negative emotions cause them to worry, panic, or even fear stepping on the ice? Do they ever struggle to believe in themselves, to refocus, or to remain positive?

This parent info-session will provide you with the knowledge you need to recognize how mental training and sport psychology can benefit both your youth-athlete’s performance, and their overall well-being in sport and beyond. You will learn how athletes can utilize one-to-one mental training to optimize their skill development and why adding a sport psychology consultant to your child’s support team is truly a long-term investment!

In addition to an overview of mental training, also included will be tips for supporting competitive youth-athletes, strategies on how to debrief performances, and how and why even a small amount of performance anxiety can keep us from performing to our potential.

Koncium Info Session Poster

This information session is provided at no cost to Minto Skating Club members but if you wish to attend, please register on-line.
