What is Sport Psychology?

The term "Sport Psychology"  means different things to different people.  

At
ThinkSport, we challenge the conventional wisdom of Applied Sport
Psychology by blending knowledge and experience from the fields of
Education, Developmental Psychology, and the Sport Sciences into a holistic
approach to individual and athletic development.

The concept of thinking is the cornerstone to ThinkSport's approach.  The
goal of this website is to begin this process.  Please read through the
material provided and decide for yourself how much of your sport is mental.
