Introduction to Sport Psychology: Training, Competition and Coping $330.00
Editors: Robert Schinke (Laurentian University)
Book Description:
Over the past several years, both coaches and athletes have started to realize that strength, speed, and other athletic skills are not sufficient for the production of championship athletes. Athletic performance has three parts: physical preparation, technical skill, and psychological readiness. This model suggests that if any of the above areas are neglected, athletic performance will decline. However, psychological preparation is the component that is most often neglected by athletes and coaches alike. This book presents and discusses research on topics which are relevant to the field of sport psychology. (Imprint: Nova)
