Sport Psychology Podcast: Maintain a Shooter Mentality

Sports Psychology Podcast

In this week’s sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps a basketball player maintain a shooter mentality. Sports psychology expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn helps athletes improve confidence in competition. Dr. Cohn answers the following mental game question:

My son is a varsity basketball player at a prestigious ranked program.  He has a very high basketball IQ and is a very skilled player. The things he does show up by his ability to make other players look good, but that does not show up in the score stats.  Why can’t I be like those players who just shoot never think?  He’s got an awesome shot, but it often is not present.  I can’t explain how to take him to that mental toughness state that allows him a short shooter memory and strong confidence.

In this Podcast, Dr. Cohn gives the top mental game strategies to develop a shooter mentality. Many players lose confidnece after a missing or making a mistake. Learn how to be proactive with your confidence and stay confidence after making mistakes.
