Back to Football: Sport Psych in Action

In January Lithuanian National Women’s U-17 Team started preparation for the UEFA Women’s Under-17 Championship in 2018 (in Lithuania). I had a pleasure to work with the team during their first training and selection camp, shifting the focus to the mental side of the game and sport psychology’s role in athlete development.

Young players participated in the workshop, where they learnt why training mental skills along the technical, tactical skills and physical fitness is essential for good performance. They worked on improving their goal setting and becoming a more cohesive team.
