As mentioned last time, imagery is a very useful and beneficial mental training technique for many different reasons. It can be used as additional off-court training for various performance areas, such as skills development, rehearsal, and mastering; tactical rehearsal & positioning; game management; problem-solving; recovery after injury, and many others. Whether you are a player, referee, or coach imagery can help you with your performance.
Today I would like to present one of the most useful techniques of mental training in sports – the technique of visualization and imagery. You may not have realized it, but you’ve probably already used imagery in your life especially when you are thinking about a game you’ll have when you remember the great performance you had the day before, or the missed shot you cannot forget about.
