Focus Mindset Training

Because we are human, we cannot control the thoughts and emotions that pop up during competition, but we can control what we choose to focus on. Training ourselves to be selective on what we lock in on helps us become better at our decision-making on the field. Once we get in the habit of selective attention, we can then begin developing the mental toughness to stay present to the most IMPORTANT factors in any given moment. We get distracted from time to time, so it’s important to recognize those moments and shift our attention back more quickly. This separates the “students of the game” from the average athlete.
