Sports Psychologist, Adrian Schonfeld was a guest speaker at the Great Southern Coaches Club breakfast held on Tuesday 5 July, hosted by the Great Southern Sports Talent Association. Adrian is a Director of Three Spires Performance Consulting and a current Sport Psychologist with Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS).
He shared his knowledge and skills with coaches from all disciplines and sports on how to incorporate a mental training program into pre-season training with athletes.
Adrian has supported summer and winter Olympic athletes from Western Australia on their journey to qualify, perform and recover from the games. He is currently assisting with final preparations for the athletes that will be competing in Rio Olympics.
According to Darrel Panizza, Chairperson of GSSTA “It is great for our region and our coaches, of all levels to be able to gain an insight into what it takes to support a high performance athlete. Coaches and parents play an important support role and we look forward to gaining some tips and ideas to how we can continue to play our part. We bat above our weight with our talent pool and it is great to be able to support events like this.’
Adrian Schonfeld also delivered a short Mental Skills Training session to the Great Southern athletes that are part of the WAIS/GSSTA Developing Champions program. The highlight for these athletes will also be a presentation by Brant Garvey, a Great Southern local who is now an Australian para-triathlete, WAIS scholarship holder currently aiming for Rio.
