POWER UP – 10 to 16 – SYDNEY

This activity-based performance psychology workshop is designed for children and young people training, seriously engaged or competing at club, regional, state and national level in their chosen sports, academic pursuits or the performing arts.

The workshop provides an abundance of psychological skills and techniques practiced by olympians, academics, prima ballerinas and musical soloists in order to compete at their very best.  

The Power Up! covers six core areas of psychological skills training. Each skill contributes to a performer’s ability to effectively manage the sustained effort required in training and practice, as well as the pressure environment of competition or performance.

This resource was awarded the Best Student Resource (Primary) under the Arts/Humanities category during the 21st  Educational Publishers Awards Australia 2014.

  • Goal setting: Learn and practice how to set clear, specific and relevant goals. Easily.
  • Self-talk: Your inner-voice is very powerful. Learn how to use it to your advantage. Step-by-Step.

    the most for your pursuit.
