What is Sport Psychology?

Sport Psychology Is About Improving Your Mental Game

A sport psychologist studies the psychological factors that impact performance, and then applies this knowledge to helping athletes and teams achieve their best possible performance. Simply put—sport psych is about improving your mental game.

Sport psychologists have been working with U.S. Olympians for over 20 years because they know that as much as elite athletes train for the physical and strategic aspects of their sport, the critical difference can oftentimes come down to mental preparation.

“You have to train your mind like you train your body.” –Bruce Jenner, Olympic Gold Medalist, Decathlon
