    Hi all,

    Thank you for your contributions so far. From your posts, I can see a great variety in sporting backgrounds and interests.

    The mental training skills outlined by Peter in this course have been applied in many different sports. You will learn that they need to be learned and practiced just like any other skill in order to help bring out optimal performance.

    Hello fellow psychology interested!

    My name i Jesper and i’m from Denmark. I’ve signed up for this course as a refresher on sport psychology.

    My favourite sport is i soccer and futsal.

    My career as a player isn’t profound, while I’ve been a coach for both soccer and futsal teams for 8 and 3 years, respectively.

    On my bachelor’s degree inn sport science from Aalborg University I’ve only had one semester concerning sport psychology, and thereby consider myself knowing the basics of sport psychology.

    My goal for this course is to achieve new knowledge on sport psychology methods for team sports, hopefully being able to relate this to soccer and/or futsal, as well as refreshing my current knowledge.

    Looking forward to participating in the course and research.

    Hi, my name is Jacob from Denmark and I’m 23 y/o.

    I’m doing this online course as a refresher as I wish to work with sport psychology after graduating from my Master in Sport and Exercise Science at Aalborg University.

    My favourite sport is handball which I perform on a elite level in the second best league in Denmark.

    Previously, I’ve becomed acquainted with coaching, and in particular systemic coaching at my education. Moreover, I’m doing an introductionary coaching course simultaneously with my master, as well as I’m enrolled in a coaching and teambuilding course at my study programme. This is also the reason why I found this course interessing to me.

    By taking this course, I hope to expand and refresh my knowledge within the sport psychological field, so that I feel more comfortable assisting elite athletes in future.

    Hi everybody. Good to see people from all over the world participating. I live in Scotland. I see there is one other participant from here too, so this small country is punching above its weight – as usual.
    I am the national Shotgun (Clay Target) coach, a job I absolutely love. I was an active competitor for many years but decided to move on into coaching as I wanted to keep my involvement in this wonderful sport continuing for ever.
    My reasons for joining up are that I have just finished a Sportscotland sponsored Applied Sport Psychology course which I found interesting and immensely helpful. So, always in the search for knowledge, I am now enrolled here.
    Looking forward to enhancing my skills to be able to further help those I am working with.

    Hi,
    I´m a university professor and also work with sports sciences in a club of high-performance athletes.
    My goal with this course is to update and enhance my knowledge in this area.
    My sport of interest is the soccer indoor and football, but I worked for many years as physical trainer of male and female volleyball teams.
    I believe that psychology in sports is inherent in all training systems and happens all the time of interaction between coaches and athletes.
    With this course I hope to have more information to provide athletes I work with.
