Sport psychological diagnostics allow new perspectives for the measurement and promotion of mental strength in professional sports. With systematic use, mental skills can be detected and enhanced, even before problems occur. This makes them a valuable asset to the recruiting process of athletes and to related developmental processes. In this way, our assessments are the foundation for professional counseling of elite athletes and allow specific, goal-oriented support.
DISCOVER ATHLETIC ABILITIES
The assessment of mental skills expands the view past the physical aspects and makes important performance requirements accessible for an informal decision. Athletes can compensate for their lack in physical development or missing technical skills, by being mentally strong and continuously having their personal goal in sight.
Personality traits, like confidence and emotional stability, have been proven to be significant for performance in stressful and match-deciding moments, and for the ability to deal with setbacks more constructively – a reliable foundation for long-term success.
PROMOTE ATHLETIC ABILITIES
Our assessments combine theoretical and practical sport psychology. The characteristics and skills detected in our assessments not only build the basis for mental strength and excellent performance in sports, but are also the content or goal of common sport psychological measures. The extensive feedback helps athletes to work independently on their weaknesses and to improve reliance on their strengths. The feedbacks describe recent, appropriate, and relevant methods and training ideas which target exactly on the skills with room for improvement.
In addition to individual training, SPORTSDRIVE assessments make it easier to develop training concepts that focus on specific skills and target groups. In this way, teams, workout groups, but also athletes from different sports with similar strengths and weaknesses, can be promoted together more efficiently. In comparison to general sport psychological training, need-specific training developed on results will not only increase the actual and perceived relevance of training for athletes, but also the athletes’ motivation and the likelihood of transfer to performance.
ENCOURAGE ATHLETIC ABILITIES
Similar to sport specific training, sport psychological training is never complete. Athletes are continuously challenged to cope with expected and unexpected performance fluctuations due to developmental processes, injuries, environmental variations, and personal lifestyle changes. All of them require adaptations and new mental skills. For this reason, assessments should be administered regularly to guide, monitor, and control the training process in a meaningful way. Our assessments display developmental progress to athletes & coaches and support them on their way to success.
