Sport psychology is now an integral part of athletic preparation at the college and professional level. However, how well do we prepare young people in the development of mental, emotional, and social factors through participation in youth sports?
This presentation will begin with overview examples of how sport psychology interventions have evolved with Division 1 individual and team athletes at Kansas State University during the past 30 years. This brief overview of examples will be followed with a description of how youth participants in sports can be introduced to specific strategies that enhance the emotional, mental, and social aspects of performance. This overview presentation will include a question and answer follow-up with participants.
Appropriate audience for this session could include parents, coaches, and youth who want to know more about the possibilities for utilizing mental and emotional training during early athletic development.
Presenters: Fred Newton, Licensed Psychologist, Professor KSU
Daniel Newton, Youth Coach, former college athlete
