    For Coaches:

    We also have a wide variety of services to assist coaches as part of your talent development programmes. We are available for consultation on how to successfully integrate talent and youth development principles into your existing development programmes. Mental skills training should be embedded within any talent and youth development programme from an early age. This should be as part of an inter-disciplinary approach to enhance the overall effectiveness of the programme.

    For Parents:

    Parents can also receive practical assistance and support from us in helping themselves and their children develop in sport. Finding ways of understanding and coping with the stresses and strains of being a parent of a child who loves sport, is a common need identified by parents.

    If any of these issues sound familiar or if you have another problem and are wondering if we can help, contact us.
