NY Nationals Sports Psychology Night Saturday March 4th, 7pm – 8pm

Posted by Coach Rick On February - 20 - 2017Comments Off

“If we always spend time talking about how baseball is 90% mental why do we only work on it 10% of the time?”

Steve Springer – “Quality at Bats”

untitled

Sport psychology is an interdisciplinary science that draws on knowledge from many related fields including biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. It involves the study of how psychological factors affect performance and how participation in sport and exercise affect psychological and physical factors.”

We’re going to talk about the mental tips and tricks ballplayers use to help them find success.

Saturday March 4th, 7pm – 8pm @ NY NATIONALS ACADEMY

“Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical” Yogi Berra

What’s a typical day like at an NYN Summer Camp?

 

stretchcamp10

Morning Session (9:30 – 11:30) consists of a daily “ready up” routine geared to get each player ready for the day at hand. Next an intense baseball and softball fundamental, mechanical and mental work out. We will be going over the basics while challenging each player to get better. Each day will have new drills covering all aspects of game ranging from base running, hitting, fielding, pitching etc.

camp9camp8

Lunch (11:30am – 12:15 PM). This gives each player the much needed time to relax after a challenging work out in the morning. Other than re-energizing, this is the perfect time for the players to interact with one another and coaches challenge the players with baseball and softball  I.Q. and trivia questions.

Afternoon Session  (12:15 – 2:00) Contests, Games, Scrimmages and Simulated Games geared towards learning.  Whether it’s individual contests such as: Home Run Derby or Gold Glove, or Team Based Contests such as: Simulated Games, Scrimmages. Our afternoon activities are designed to incorporate the instruction from the morning with competition.  Allowing players to practice what they’ve learned while having  some fun and learning from the situations that arise from competitive game play.
