We are delighted to again team up with Shane Winterton, a registered psychologist working for the Ministry of Education who has spent the last 25 years working with young people, their carers and teachers. In addition he has a long history of working with athletes, consulting across a range of sports as diverse as multisport and golf. He is also the mental skills trainer for the Crusaders Tasman (Mako) Academy programme and, in this role, he has worked with players who are currently involved at NPC, NZ age-group, NZ Sevens, Super Rugby and international levels
Workshop Overview: This interactive workshop will explore how sports coaches, regardless of code, can work with athletes to help them to review their performance and to get the most out of the self-review process. It will also explore how coaches can encourage athletes to use mental skills to help them gain that competitive edge and so maximize their performance.
