I·SPARC and Pacific Sport Okanagan are pleased to present this free webinar for athletes and coaches, “Goal-Setting: Building a Foundation for Success” led by Dr. Shaunna Taylor.
About this Event
A carefully managed goals strategy is very effective in enhancing performance in sport. Research demonstrates that smart, high-level goals prompt superior performance more successfully than no goals or vague ‘do-your-best’ goals. Crucially, many teams fall into the trap of setting the wrong goals and face a challenge to understand how the process of goal setting works.
Participants will learn concrete goal-setting skills to work on individually, and as a team or a program. Goal-setting is fundamental to mapping out a yearly training program, leading up to an event, but it is also an important way of staying on track when in more uncertain times (such as the ones we are experiencing today – where circumstances are ever-changing)!
This webinar will provide an opportunity for athletes and coaches to learn about some sport-specific and global examples of ways you can use the tool of goal-setting to chart your course this fall, through to winter and 2021.
