How to Train Your Athletes to Perform While Under Pressure - Are your athletes prepared to perform while under pressure? Some experts advise players to "be in t...he moment", but that is too generalized.Two things are proven to prepare athletes to perform under pressure. One is practice using controlled repetition while under pressure - that develops the ability to react instinctively without thinking. How do you create pressure? If possible, have athletes compete, whether it is shooting free throws, or catching a ball, or dribbling a soccer ball, or swimming - competition creates pressure. Another is to teach them what to think about when in the big moment - think of a successful result, not of failure - try to be in a zen-like place - in the moment, only thinking about the ball going thru the hoop, or hitting the ball, or winning the race - only think of a successful result, not about technique, or failure, or the consequences of failure. Your body tends to do as you think, but at critical moments, you can't think about "how" to do something, you can only think about a successful result, NOT about technique. At the critical moment you want to be a like a machine and do the right thing the correct way without thinking about how to do it - that is what practice has prepared you for. Many times during a game, match or competition you must rely on instinctive reactions.
