Athlete’s Cards provide an interesting and fun way to work on relationship, to discuss new topics and deepen the knowledge on more common ones. They also provide a chance to self-reflect on various areas of functioning and to build own self-consciousness.
I strongly recommend that tool for all athletes, coaches and parents. Improve your self-consciousness and communication patterns.
The Journal is a very interesting option to collect or your information in one place. I recommend it to everyone – experienced and at the very beginning of your sporting career. All in one place, at your fingertips!
As a tool in the hands of a coach/sport psychologist Athlete’s Cards are very effective, as it is enough to encourage athletes to „play” with the cards, and they will do the rest!
I use the Journal and it „saved my head” during Polish Championships. This is a great tool. I study psychology, so I am aware of some of the details, however sometimes you just need that additional support. That’s when I pull out my Journal, self-reflect, and I am a different person 🙂
Questions are the basis of my work and here I have a list of open-ended questions that I can easily apply.
