Ask yourself these questions:
Practicing the See It. Say It. Do It! Process with your child at an early age gives him/her a lifetime skill. The combination of solid visual training, physical training and confidence really comes together in sports. Allison Arnold, Ph.D., is the founder of Head Games and serves as a consultant to USA Gymnastics and U.S. Figure Skating in addition to amateur, professional and collegiate athletes. Dr. Arnold says: “It’s never too early to teach your child the basics of mental training. Training the mind is no different from training the body.”
- Are you truly able to see, focus and concentrate to excel at your sport?
- Can your eyes and body sync and coordinate to the fullest potential, or do you feel disconnected with what you see and how your body moves?
- Do you achieve the “mental” edge for your sport through the See It. Say It. Do It! Process?
- Are you visually safe and know how to PREVENT injuries so that you can focus on your sport?
If your child has not utilized visualization for practice before, she might need a little experience to see the connection between her mind and her sports performance. Try one of these activities, for the young child or the older child. Modify the activity specifically for your child’s sport by filling in the blanks.
