This course is designed to give managers, coaches, trainers and athletes into the importance of concentration, attention and focus and the part they can play in sport. The ability to concentrate in the present time and to focus on the task as an individual performer or a member of a team is very important in achieving peak performance in sports. As most games or competitions can last from several minutes up to several hours depending on the sport, the ability to concentrate becomes more vital. During game time the athlete or player will switch his or her attention and concentration on and off repeatedly with the ebb and flow of the competition. Turning concentration on and off makes it more difficult to get into a rhythm. Total concentration occurs when an athlete becomes totally involved in the task, feels that time is suspended, and loses the sense of being separate from his or her surroundings (Edger 2011).
This course discusses all the aspects of attention span, concentration and focus needed for sport and it teaches the coach how to help athletes and players become better at concentrating and focusing on the performance.
