  21. 23. Working with Stress <ul><li>Stress (how it works) </li></ul><ul><li>Some type of demand is placed on the participant, which might be physical or psychological, such as a penalty in football. </li></ul><ul><li>One player might feel nervous of taking the penalty while the other might look forward to it, he or she might see it as an opportunity. </li></ul>
  22. 24. Working with Stress <ul><li>If the player feels stressed, they will react by becoming anxious, both physically and mentally and this will effect their performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Another player might improve their performance and successfully score the goal. </li></ul>

  24. 26. Working with Stress <ul><li>How can we as effective sports leaders manage stress. </li></ul><ul><li>Progressive relaxation – Players relax and tense their muscles until they reach a state of total relaxation. </li></ul><ul><li>Breathing – We could encourage players to breath in a controlled and rhythmical way, this encourages a relaxed state. </li></ul><ul><li>Stress inoculation training – this gradually exposes the participant to the threat that is causing the stress. As the participant learns to cope with low-stress situations, they are gradually exposed to higher-stress situations until they can cope with the full exposure. </li></ul>
