The Role of sports psychology to enhance sport performance
Author(s): Rajveer Singh
Psychology is the study of the nature and function of the mind, with particular emphasis placed on the relationship between thought and physical action. Psychology has become increasingly important in sports, particularly with respect to the improvement and maintenance of athletic performance. Sport psychology has grown remarkably from its roots in the amorphous and poorly understood disciplines of athlete motivation and performance counseling 40 years ago. Modern sport at every level of competition and in virtually every sporting activity has benefited from the application of psychological principles and mental training in the pursuit of maximum athletic performance, stress management, improved training attitude and every other aspect of sport where the mind, emotions and physical performance intersect.
