ATH 901 - Coaching: Enhancing Motivation

Any coach or athlete who achieves success in the arena of competitive sport does so because of a high level of mastery in the mental aspects of athletic performance.  Fundamental to the examination of all behavior is the understanding of motivation.  All learning, improvement, and successful sport performance is intrinsically tied to the psychological dimension of motivation.  Typically, the level of understanding and subsequent application of sound psychological principles with regard to developing, creating and sustaining high levels of motivation falls far below what is needed for optimum athletic achievement.  This course offers the athletic coach and/or scholar the opportunity to learn and apply correct psychological principles for enhancing motivation within the competitive sport context. Techniques and tools shared in this course are based on the current literature and supported by national education standards.
