Sports Psychology Sport psychology is a very small subarea of psychology, with limited jobs. Sports psychologists apply psychological methods and knowledge to the study and modification of the behavior and mental processes of people involved in sports. These psychologists generally perform three primary roles, namely teaching, research, and practice. Generally, sports psychologists are trained within the field of clinical or counseling psychology and physical education. Opportunities for sports psychologists include counseling in a sports medicine clinic or with a professional sports team, research in an academic setting involving student athletes, and developing enhancement programs for athletes. Most opportunities are available to psychologists with doctoral degrees. However, master's level sports psychologists may find opportunities in health care settings working in health promotion and rehabilitation programs. Courses especially appropriate for those interested in sports psychology include:

During this time, a skater must land every jump, nail every lift, or perform every bit of footwork with complete precision. There are no time outs, no second chances. I dare anyone to say that figure skaters aren't under a lot of pressure. It's true that ninety percent of any sport is mental. Your mind is what controls your body, and if your body is prepared but your mind is not, well, the results will probably not be what you hoped for. The key to skating a good program is good, strong mental focus and self-confidence. One good idea is to have some sort of set routine for the day of competition. Check screws to make sure they are tight enough, check laces to make sure they are not broken (or in immediate danger of breaking), check costume ahead of time in case it needs some last minute repairs, etc. This way, you will know ahead of time that your equipment will not hinder your performance. It's okay to have a few "superstitions" as well, as long as you don't let it get too out of hand. (In other words, understand that there is a fine line between following a routine and being "obsessive compulsive" about it. The routine is supposed to help calm nerves, but this doesn't mean that all is lost if you cannot follow the routine exactly.)

Sports Psychology
I am writing to you hoping that you will be able to offer me some advice to give me a better idea of which direction I want to go and what to look for when I am applying to colleges. I know I want to study psychology. I either want to become a sports psychologist and sports doctor or I will study another branch of psychology (I am not yet sure which branch). I have a few questions:
  • What do I look for to study sports psychology (as far as majors,etc.)? I've noticed that not too many colleges (or at least not as many as I thought) have the major "athletic training/sports medicine" listed. Is this the major I should be looking for to be a sports doctor or should/could I look under something else? If so, what should I look under? If this is the major I should be looking for and a college doesn't have it, is there another way I could study sports medicine and begin my education to become a sports doctor at that school under other majors in the medical field, etc.?

    This has been a central theme of sports psychology since its beginning when Triplettstudied the effects of audience and competition on performance in the late
    Motivation, the last frontier. With enough of it any ordinary person can become a world class athlete. Without it the same person could end up begging for change downtown. Even a tremendously talented rider will go nowhere without motivation. How do some riders always seem to be so motivated? What are the sources of their motivation? This has been a central theme of sports psychology since its beginning when Triplett studied the effects of audience and competition on performance in the late nineteenth century. Though a great deal has been written on motivation since Triplett it is still an individual construct. As an athlete you need to identify what motivates you and cultivate the sources of your motivation. Here are a few popular methods.
    GOALS. One of the best sources of motivation is setting goals. Be specific and put them down on paper. Define your goals clearly and make them attainable. Short term goals are more important than long term goals and should be even more precisely defined. Set short term goals for things like going on a good ride this afternoon, doing five sprints, bettering your time on a known course, etc. Set long term goals such as training at least five days a week, placing in specific races, upgrading... DO NOT STRESS WINNING when defining your goals. Instead stress enjoying the ride and doing your best in every ride and race.

    SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY Intro: Playing Golf with a positive mental attitude may seem obvious, mental preparation is often neglected and reaching a zone where you feel you cannot lose is not as mystical as some people may think. Interview with Lesley Goddard about Sports Psychology The use of Sports Psychology to maximise potential is perhaps unfamiliar to many, Consultant Sports Psychologist Lesley Goddard confirms that all elite competitors have excellent psychological skills, which will include basic imagery and self-hypnosis. The majority of top class performers agree that winning is 90% mental – obviously in the beginning the percentage is somewhat lower as in all sports there is always a learning curve. The length and shape of this curve differs with the individual but exists in one form or another. "The primary concern of a Sports Psychologist is to assist competitors to obtain the psychological skills that facilitate enhanced performance." Lesley explained adding that: "Sports Psychology is there for you to take your own level one step further by the use of mental skills in the areas of self-confidence and motivation, positive imagery, goal setting, concentration, stress management and awareness."
