GET PSYCHED UP: LESSON 3: Part 5
Visualization is possibly one of the most underrated techniques in sport psychology, but also a really relaxing way to mentally prepare yourself for just about any upcoming situation.
Imagine you are standing in the middle of your favorite team’s arena. You are wearing a jersey with your name on the back, and everyone is chanting your name.
Pretty cool huh?
You can imagine yourself:
Scoring the winning goal of a big game!
Responding to a bad call by the referee
Passing the ball to a teammate
Receiving a pass from a teammate
Discussing the game with your coach – what you would say
…and much more!
