Playing With Confidence How To Overcome Sports Performance Anxiety
Sports Psychology for Performance Anxiety
- Review the race and recall the things you did well.Focus on actions, thoughts, and behaviors that helped you perform.
- Acknowledge, but quickly dismiss things that hindered your performance.This is the same principle as avoiding an obstacle while driving - look where you want to go, not where you don't. When you focus on the pothole, you invariably hit it. Focusing on the negative aspects of the event will not help you improve in the future. Rather, you want to focus on the times when you 'got it right.' This is a form of mental rehearsal where you practice skills that will be used in the next event.
- Design a training program that mimics race-like conditions.Teams and clubs often do such training. If you always train alone, consider joining a group so you can do this type of simulation. Practice is most effective if you can mimic the conditions you will be faced with in competition. Coaches can also help or hinder an athlete's ability to overcome choking during competition. Coaches often inadvertently reinforce a pattern of choking when trying to encourage ("the next shot is critical"). Such talk only increases the pressure an athlete feels to perform.
