Dave Starling : Handling Game Pressure With a Planby NHSBCA
Handling Game Pressure With a Plan
Handling the pressure of the game and especially in big moments are often too much for players. The bright lights, expectations, criticism, nervousness and silence are enough to make a player fall to his knees.
Players try to reduce the pressure by remembering to embrace the moment, breathe, stay focused on the process and to downsize the importance. They have to remember that they’ll have multiple opportunities. It's important to let go of winning and not to over do it. Not every story needs a hero.
One of the best ways to handle pressure is to push yourself in training and test your limits. Facing game pressures can be handled with a plan. By practicing with the same force and intensity as you would in a game will create less pressure in the moment, because you’ve done it time and time again. It's just a matter of execution. It's important to have self motivation and encouragement in those moments. If you’re mentally defeated, the job is already done.
In this course, Dave Starling shares how he approaches the pressure that players often face and the best way to tackle it head on. Spinning it to work to their advantage and making the best of the moment. Everything you need to put the pressure behind you and win the game is right here.
