Summary

An essential part of any coaching curriculum, Coaches Guide to Sport Psychology helps students understand the key concepts of sport psychology and develop the psychological skills they need to be effective coaches. Renowned sport psychologist Rainer Martens shows them how to formulate a coaching philosophy and sharpen their leadership and communication skills.

Numerous examples, checklists, and self-evaluation forms show students how to teach such important skills as:

  • Imagery
  • Psychic energy management
  • Stress management
  • Attentional skills
  • Self-confidence
  • Goal setting

Complete with guidelines for implementing a psychological skills training program, the Coaches Guide to Sport Psychology is ideal for coaching majors and for courses and workshops in applied sport psychology.


"One of the few books on sport psychology that has ever impressed us. Written simply but absorbingly, disdaining cant and high-blown technical terms, the author zeros right in . . . Martens has a great sense of what is important and what is real, plus the ability to communicate it."

--Scholastic Coach

"Contains great information, is thought provoking and should be part of every coach's library so he/she may better understand the psychological side of sport."

--Journal of Applied Research in Coaching & Athletics
