Project #121989 - Psychology for Sports Performance

 

 

 

Sporting performance can be affected by many factors which are difficult to control.  Stress, anxiety and arousal are three good examples, how these are dealt with successfully is an area which varies from person to person.  Throughout this assignment you are required to investigate possible methods of overcoming all three areas.

on sports performance (nervous system responses, negative mental state, loss of self-confidence and concentration)

 

Anxiety: definition; types (state and trait anxiety); cause (negative effect of stress); symptoms (cognitive, somatic and behavioural); effects on sports performance (negative mental state, loss of self-confidence and decreased expectations of success, fear of failure)

 

To achieve P3, P4 and M2 you are required to produce a series of leaflets or poster presentations

 

 

 

You are required to describe the terms stress and anxiety providing a description of each, applying their cause, symptoms and effect to a relevant and valid sporting context.  Further questioning may take place in order to assess your level of understanding and for you to explain in greater detail key factors.

 

 

 

Leaflet/ Poster Essential Content

 

Stress: definition; types (eustress and distress); causes (internal, external, personal, occupational, sports environments); symptoms (cognitive, somatic and behavioural); effects

 

In order to achieve P4, you are required to complete a leaflet/ poster which clearly describes three theories of arousal and the effect on sports performance. (Work Book)  

Arousal: definition; theories eg. drive theory, inverted U hypothesis, catastrophe theory, individual zones of optimal functioning; effects on sports performance (improvements and decrements in performance level, changes in attention focus, increases in anxiety levels, choking)

 

To achieve M2 you must explain the effects of arousal on sports performance. The assessment will be on video.
