Is Sports Psychology The Missing Ingredient Or Is There More?

Coaches, parents and athletes around the world, are really coming around to the idea of the importance of mental training in sports. Learning basic sports psychology tools and hiring sports psychologists to work with teams, is getting more and more popular among coaches and schools.

There are some commonly taught sports psychology techniques that help improve athletes' mental toughness and confidence. They include things like goal setting, visualization, positive self-talk and developing performance routines.
