Project Description

Mindful Sports Coaches Workshops

We offer two online training workshops:

Foundations

Mindful Sports Foundations is a four-week introductory course teaching mindfulness to coaches. Specifically created for sports coaches and physical education teachers, this course introduces mindfulness training and the development of personal mindfulness practice.

Foundations includes modules on how to use mindfulness to better manage the stressors and challenges of youth sports and prepare us to teach mindfulness to young athletes.

This course introduces you to the core concepts of a personal mindfulness practice, and includes both experiential mindfulness training and informative learning on the physiological nature of stress and self-regulation.

My experience in the Mindful Sports Coaches Workshop has been very enriching. Although I have some background in mindfulness, I have found that I have learned the skills to apply it to young athletes in a very simple but empowering way. Understanding what makes mindfulness practices in sports and with young athletes so important for them as well as practicing them during the course has open my mind and heart enormously. I am thankful to Coach Sam for sharing all his knowledge with me and for being such a great companion in this process.
