Sport Psychology Teaching Approaches for High School Coaches and Their Student-Athletes
Gilbert, Jenelle N.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v88 n2 p52-58 2017
Coaches lacking a formal background in sport psychology may shy away from teaching these skills in favor of teaching physical skills with which they are more familiar. Other coaches may assume that athletes will learn sport psychology skills as a byproduct of their coaching pedagogy. Regardless, high school coaches are responsible for teaching sport psychology skills to the student-athletes in their charge. The purpose of this article is to describe three different approaches to teach sport psychology skills to high school student-athletes. Based in the psychological UNIFORM curriculum, athletes will benefit from the intentional nature of the approaches, while the teaching formats will assist coaches pedagogically. Modifications and appropriate shortcuts are also suggested for coaches who want to teach sport psychology skills, but may lack the resources and/or time to create these materials.
