Mental Toughness Workshop for Skaters coming to the
San Diego Ice Arena
As a skating parent, it can be very frustrating to see your skater struggle with their consistency and performance in competitions. Many times, skaters have a hard time staying focused in practice and struggle to land new jumps or improve their overall skating ability in a timely fashion. Many parents and coaches alike, have witnessed a skater attribute a poor performance to losing focus, or tightening up under pressure,
~ the mental side of skating.
Despite that, athletes and coaches commonly try to correct poor performance simply through more practice time or program runs. Often, a lack of physical skills is not the real problem, but a lack of mental skills is. Just telling a skater to relax will not produce the desired effect unless that skater has already learned and practiced relaxation skills. Simply telling a skater to be confident does not magically instill it.
In February & March, Shannon Peck, M.S. will lead a series of Mental Toughness Workshops at the San Diego Ice Arena.
Help your skaters to:
Boost self-confidence levels
Stay calm under pressure
Set effective goals
Identify self-doubts and replace ineffective self-talk
Use Visualization to increase concentration and consistency
Improve focus control and skater’s pre-event
