Mental Training for Figure Skaters



Mental Training for Figure Skaters
Powerful mental training formulas for increasing figure skating performance and reducing anxiety, while bringing body and mind into balance. The simple but effective techniques have been proven to work through research and hands-on experience by United States Olympic Committee sport psychologists developed for Team USA. Sessions are available in person, by phone or via Skype.

Five key mental skill areas skaters can quickly utilize in their everyday training.
Self Talk
The athlete's internal language impacts performance. The common negative self-talk many great athlete's suffer from can quickly undo great training and talent in achieving their dreams. By learning to reframe negative self-talk, the athlete is empowered to reach maximum confidence and potential.

Energy Management
Fine tuning energy levels and concentration for consistently optimal performance.

Peak Performance Preparation
Strengthening the connection between good training and great competitions.

Mental imagery is a powerful tool that helps skaters focus on their strengths, build confidence and improve performance. Visualization is a technique in which you imagine yourself in a specific skating environment performing a specific element or routine successfully. The technique is extremely valuable in helping skaters to achieve their elements faster and in facilitating successful competition and test performances. 

Goal Setting
Creating a clear path to success from long term to short term goals. Creating yearly, monthly, weekly and daily plans in a clear format to achieve the goal.
