    Hi, my name is Peta. I have signed up for this course as a refresher to my previous degrees in Psychology and Dance Science. My favourite sport is dancing and I am involved in dancing as both a teacher and student. I’m currently doing a PhD with a focus on performance psychology in dance and am hoping that this course will help me with my plans to implement mental skills training for dancers as part of my project.

    Hi Neil,
    I’m Chris from Singapore. I first came to know about this course on my Facebook’s Singapore Sport Psychology Network Group a couple of months back and decided to sign up and participate in the course.

    I’m a Mental Skills Coach and have been working with athletes and coaches from various sport disciplines e.g, Judo, Karate, Wushu Softball, Field Hockey, Professional Golf, Canoe Polo, Cross-country distance running and Ice-Figure Skating.

    I look forward to reinforcing and enhancing my present mental skills through this Sport Psychology course and be more effective in my conduct and delivery of the topics and modules presented. In so doing, I hope to enable more athletes, coaches and support staff to appreciate and apply the sport psychology perspectives to further enhance their understanding and application of the knowledge acquired in their mental preparation and performance in their sport.

    Thank you Mr. Neil Martin and Prof. Peter Terry for designing this course and making it available for our learning enhancement and participation in the program.

    Hi. I’m Joseph from Singapore. My coaching part time. Due to work commitments, it is difficult for me to take leave and attend courses/clinics related to coaching. This online course lets me learn at my own pace and I think might allow me to motivate my students better. I coach swimming and dabble in some triathlon.
