Non-Sport Performance Situations
All SKPC athletes will be able to apply the mental skills that they learn from us to a wide variety of non-sport, performance situations. First, let’s look at what characteristics define a performance situation:
- The situation is often scheduled in advance.
- The situation usually has a defined beginning and end.
- The circumstances are known in advance.
- The results are evaluated by standards that are usually known in advance.
- The results are uncertain and may involve psychological risk.
- The results are important to the performer.
- The performer’s behavior is goal-oriented.
- The results are influenced by the performer’s skillful behavior.
Some real life examples of non-sport performance situations that our athletes will eventually encounter are:
- Taking a final exam or S.A.T
- College Admissions Interview
- Job Interview
- Giving a class presentation
- Taking their driver’s test
