Did you think soccer was only about physical skills & talent?
Do you know how important the mental side of performance is?
Being a great player requres focus, confidence, composure & the ability to quickly bounce back from mistakes.
A mentally tough soccer player can stay calm and loose under pressure, he/she can stay in control of their emotions and focused on the game even when an opponent is continually trash-talking, pulling at their jersey and playing dirty. A mentally tough soccer player can quickly bounce back from mistakes and bad calls, maintain intensity and confidence no matter how far down the team may be or how much time is left on the clock.
Do you know what the mental traps are for soccer players and how to avoid them? How about mental preparation for big games? Do you know how to effectively use imagery and visualization to build confidence and enhance your play?
