Brain Training for Athletes

$24.99

A Guide to Teaching Focus, Leadership and a Winning Attitude

If you’re looking for insights beyond X’s and O’s on how to be a better coach, Stephanie Schleuder’s “Brain Training for Athletes” is a must read.

– How do you teach captains to be better leaders?
– What do you do if a player is dogging it in practice?
– What are good strategies for building team chemistry?
– How do you deal with chronic complainers?
– How do you raise the collective energy of your team?

Schleuder deals with all of this and a lot more, and she offers specific solutions – worksheets, even – based on her many years of collegiate coaching experience. Winning games, as Schleuder points out, is not just about having a good game plan and good players. It’s also about knowing which buttons to push to bring out the best in your athletes and how to integrate them into a single unit that will function at the height of its potential.

Note: This is the same book as Stephanie Schleuder’s Brain Training for Volleyball, except that all of the volleyball-specific references have been replaced with generic sport references so that the book applies to other female sports – softball, soccer, basketball, etc. All of the chapters and information are the same. This book is meant for coaches who want to be able to share the book with other coaches at their school/organization who coach sports other than volleyball.
