MOTIVATION AND GOAL SETTING

Goal setting is inherently linked to task performance: the more specific and challenging (yet realistic) your goals, the better your task performance. Athletes can sometimes get tied up thinking that they need to be better than their opponents, but ultimately being successful at sport requires more than simply being faster or stronger. You will be supported in this session to identify goals and how you can achieve them.

TELLING YOUR STORY

 Lisa McAskill, an experienced presenter with more than 30 years experience in the television, modelling, film and training industries, will focus on building your confidence with public speaking. You will learn practical skills to deliver great presentations and interviews. A key part of that will be understanding your key messages, what you want your public profile/brand to “look like” to ensure you are always “on song.”

PREPARING FOR COMPETITION

Learning how to perform optimally for competition can be challenging. There are often numerous distractions and unique circumstances that can be daunting and unexpected. In this session, you will learn how to mentally prepare for competitions. You will be taught how to focus on the controllable aspects and formulate positive routines and strategies to maximise success.
