What is it?
Sport Psychology is the scientific study of the psychological factors associated with participation and performance in sport. It involves theory, research, and putting that theory and research to work with individuals and teams. Sport Psychology is meant to educate, enhance performance, and increase psychological well-being of athletes, coaches, parents, athletic-trainers, athletic association administration, and other athletic professionals. It comes in a variety of forms including individual and team work, behind-the-scenes consultation with administration and coaches, as well as program development.
