Course description:

The goal of the NCCP Basic Mental Skills module is to support coaches in developing mental skills in their day-to-day practice as a coach.

Learning Outcomes

  • Integrate mental-preparation strategies into practices
  • Help participants be mentally prepared for competition


Training for the NCCP Basic Mental Skills module takes approximately 4 hours and it covers 6 topics:

  • Introduction
  • Basic mental skills
  • Developing and maintaining focus
  • Setting goals
  • Planning for mental skill development
  • Conclusion

Once you have completed the workshop, credit for the module will appear in your coach transcript in the Locker.

Note: There are similarities between this module and the NCCP Psychology of Performance module. While this module provides an overview to mental skill development and application, the NCCP Psychology of Performance module covers the knowledge of mental skill development at a deeper level and provides more opportunities for coaches to practice. Both modules follow a similar structure, yet they cover different depths of applying the development of mental skills.
