The goal of the NCCP Psychology of Performance module is to support coaches in developing mental skills in their day-to-day practice as a coach.
*Note: There are similarities between this module and the NCCP Basic Mental Skills module. While the NCCP Basic Mental Skills module provides an overview to mental skill development and application, this module covers the knowledge of mental skill development at a deeper level and provides more opportunities for coaches to practise. Both modules follow a similar structure, yet they cover different depths of applying the development of mental skills.
