  • *The rower is not an image, it is a special text*\n
  • Personal Relevance: \n- Been rowing for all of high school\n- Plan on rowing in college \n- Interested in sport psychology \n- Possible major?\n\n*Personal picture scanned onto computer*\n
  • - What is sport psychology?\n
  • - Definition\n- Also includes competitive anxiety \n- Techniques athletes can use in the competitive situation to maintain control and optimize performance\n- Sport psychologist not only studying elite athletes, but also children and handicapped \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • - Mental techniques \n- Positive thoughts \n- For preparation of competition \n- Used to calm the athlete for peak performance\n
  • - The four main mental qualities that are important for successful performance in most sports \n1. Concentration\n2. Control\n3. Confidence\n4. Commitment\n
  • \n
  • - Concentration: the ability to maintain focus\n\n
  • Four kinds of attention focus\n1. Broad External: Used to rapidly assess a situation \n2. Broad Internal: Used to analyze and plan (ex. developing game plan/strategy)\n3. Narrow External: Used to focus exclusively on one or two external cues (ex. the ball)\n4. Narrow Internal: Used to mentally rehearse an upcoming performance or control an emotional state \n\n
  • - If athlete lacks concentration their abilities will not be effectively or efficiently applied to the task \n\n
  • Choking = a pattern of behavior \n- When their performance progressively deteriorates\n- Cannot regain control over performance\n
  • 1. Important competition\n2. Critical plays in a competition\n3. Evaluation by coaches, peers and parents \n
  • Physical\n- increased muscle tension\n- increase breathing rate\n- racing heart rate \nImpairment\n- Timing and coordination breakdown\n- muscle tightness and fatigue\n- rushing\n- inability to attend to task-relevant cues \n\n
  • - Ex. to maintain concentration = set process goals for each session or competition \n- Developing competition routines \n- Night before\n- Morning of\n- Pre-competition\n- Competition\n- Post competition \n
  • \n
  • - Confidence: believe in one’s abilities\n- Characterized by a high expectancy of success\n
  • - Positive emotions\n- Concentration\n- Goals\n- Effort\n- Game strategies\n- Momentum \n
  • - Falsely confident \n- Confidence is greater than their abilities warrant \n- Performance declines: believe they do not have to prepare themselves or exert effort to reach goals \n
  • - Being so convinced that you can achieve your goals you will strive so hard to do \n- Will not always perform well\n- Essential to reaching potential \n
  • \n
  • Control = ability to maintain emotional control regardless of distraction \n
  • Gaining emotional control: \n- Identifying when an athlete feels a certain emotion and understands the reason for feeling that way \nMaintaining control in face of adversity essential for success in performance \n
  • Two forms:\n- Physical = butterflies, sweating, nausea \n- Mental = worry, negative thoughts, confusion, lack of concentration \n
  • Technique used to reduce anxiety \n- Also will physically relax your muscles so you will perform better \n
  • \n
  • Commitment = ability to continue working to agreed goals \n\n\n
  • Performance depends on athlete being fully committed to numerous goals over many years \n- Will reach goals with confidence, control, and concentration \n- Setting goals will raise feelings of value\n- Could include other teammates for more commitment to achievement \n
  • This video is currently recorded on my DVR and I am working on transferring it onto my Macbook\n- About 3 minutes in length\n
  • Commitment undermined by numerous reasons, including\n- injury \n- lack of enjoyment\n- anxiety about performance/competition \n- lack of commitment by other athletes\n- lack of progress or improvement \n
  • Rowing Mental Fitness: the application of sport psychology in rowing \n- Incorporates the foundations of sport psychology for peak performance\n- Includes erging (using a rowing machine)\n
  • - Probably the most famous rowing quote\n- Explains what rowers experience \n- Illustrates motivation and mental fitness\n- “You realize with dead...letting your teammates down by not rowing your hardest is unthinkable.”\n
  • - Rowing machine\n- Compare it to a treadmill for running or other exercise machines\n- Used especially for winter training and fitness tests \n
  • - Technical definition\n\n
  • - Rower definitions\n- {videos} \n
  • \n
  • 1. Wall-sit competition: best physical competition to do in relation to sport psychology. It takes great motivation to stay up. This can be done anywhere there is a wall (possibly the lockers). \n2. Plank competition: also a great mental test. This will take much less time because it works the entire core, as opposed to the wall-sit that only works the legs. \n3. Superman competition: a much harder mental test that will take a very short period of time because of its difficulty. The class may not be comfortable doing this, but it is a good way to illustrate sport psychology. \n

  • “ Marathon runners talk about hitting the wall at the twenty-third mile ofthe race. What rowers confront isnt a wall; its a hole - an abyss of pain,which opens up in the second minute of the race. Large needles are beingdriven into your thigh muscles, while your forearms seem to be splitting.Then the pain becomes confused and disorganized, not like the windednessof the runner or the leg burn of the biker but an all-over, savageunpleasantness. As you pass the five-hundred-meter mark, with three-quarters of the race still to row, you realize with dread that you are not goingto make it to the finish, but at the same time the idea of letting yourteammates down by not rowing your hardest is unthinkable...Therefore,you are going to die. Welcome to this life. ” - Ashleigh Teitel http://www.ignatiuscrew.com/sicontent/siquotes.asp
