1. The relational/mental health aspect of being an athlete.

In the first session we will discuss a person’s relationship with sport in the context of his or her relationships with others. We will discuss how an athlete’s motivation can be connected to these relationships, how mental health challenges can impact an athlete’s performance and experience, and thoughts regarding where help can be sought for these challenges.

6. Developing the Mental Performance Plan

This is the most common mental performance strategy Shannon uses. In this session I will ask athletes to consider “who” he or she wants to be, “who” he or she has already been at his or her best, and we will develop an actionable plan for you to be this person as consistently as possible – in particular when racing and training.

Monday June 3, 2019 6pm PST

7. Evaluating the mental performance plan and other strategies.

This session will take a look at how we go back and evaluate all elements of the mental/ emotional side of our sporting life. We will discuss the mental performance plan in particular, but this topic can expand broader than the MPP.

We look forward to you joining us!
