Sports Psychology

The popularity of sport psychology, both as an academic discipline and an applied practice, has grown substantially over the past few years but it is still a relatively unexplored area. The role of a sports psychologist is to enhance an athletes performance through improved confidence, focus, composure, intensity and self-belief. These areas not only help on the field but it can also benefit the general life of an athlete off the field too. 

Work experience is essential for aspiring sport or exercise psychologists, as relevant work internships or placements are usually required to gain a place on a Masters course or open up career opportunities with professional clubs in the discipline. The importance of a sports psychologist as an integral member of the coaching and health care teams is becoming more and more widely recognised.

Sporting Opportunities provide sports psychology internship placements abroad, giving people exposure to a range of athletes in various sports and helping them get the psychology experience they need.
