Goal Setting for Retraining and Return to Competition

Resuming practice and their competitive schedule after a significant time off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, athletes are highly susceptible to injury and bitter disappointment. Many athletes, along with their coaches, expect to resume their workouts where they left off, a strategy that can result in disaster. Goal setting—a powerful behavioral intervention for performance enhancement—can be of immense practical value if appropriately applied during this period. This webinar, hosted by Dr. Gerry Shaw, will highlight the many advantages of goal setting and provide guidelines that athletes and coaches need to follow in establishing goals.
