The primary goal of this course is to give students a basic introduction to the study of sport psychology. From this course you will gain a much deeper understanding of yourself as a player (past or present), or as a spectator watching athletes excel or fail. You will gain a better understanding of coaches and some reasoning behind the tactics they implement on their players. Lastly my hope is that you gain an appreciation for the study of sport in the field of psychology as well as being able to walk away from this course with new information that you will somehow be able to apply to your life down the road long after your time as an undergraduate student has passed.
