Mental game training workshop for athletes of all sports, coaches and sport shooters, 3 March 2018


Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished athlete, your mental game contributes significantly to your performance. As a thumb suck, I would estimate 25% in the case of a beginner and up to 90% in the case of a top competitor. That being the case, by how much can you improve your performance by getting expert training in the mental game? And, crucially, implementing what you’ve learned? Even a relatively small improvement in performance and consistency will move you significantly up the ladder of whichever sport you do. So, what are you waiting for?

My next Mental Game training workshop for athletes, coaches and sport shooters will be on Saturday 3 March 2018 at the conference centre of the Willows Country Lodge in Pretoria. While it is specifically aimed at sport shooters, but will be applicable to most sports.  The workshop will cover the “canon” of sport psychology, which is goal setting, stress management, self talk, imagery and focus. In addition to this, I shall be dealing with intuitive vs. rational decision making, developing expert heuristics and habits, developing a Stoic-growth mindset, pre-performance routines and so forth.

    Good day, I registered yesterday and want to know if it went through and if I have a spot for sure. Also where do I get bank details for EFT.
    Thank you.


    • Hi Marinda. I’ve sent you an e-mail. Your registration does not show on the database, sorry for that. I tested again and everything seems to work fine. I sent you a link to the form just to be sure. I’ll send more info and the banking details after receiving the registration. Regards, Leon
