What is Sports Psychology?

Sports Psychology is a subfield of psychology that focuses on understanding how psychological factors impact athletic performance, as well as how participation in sport and physical activity affects psychological development, health, and well-being.

It involves studying various mental and emotional aspects of sports performance, including motivation, confidence, focus, stress and anxiety management, goal setting, teamwork, communication, and leadership.

Sports psychologists work with athletes, coaches, and teams to enhance performance, prevent and treat injuries, and promote overall well-being. They may also work with individuals who are recovering from sports-related injuries or dealing with mental health issues related to their athletic participation.
