Date Change - Sports Psychology Training 2016
by posted 02/02/2016



Nick Francis, the Director of Experiential Learning at Seven Hills will, once again, be conducting Sports Psychology Training for our Cincy Royals players. He has been involved in competitive sports for thirty years as a player, coach, and mental game consultant. He is originally from England where he played collegiate soccer while earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise and Sport Science. Nick’s interest in sports performance brought him to the U.S. for a Master’s Degree specializing in Sports Psychology. 

The curriculum Nick has developed is focused on four key objectives:

  • Teach athletes how to develop a mind that has a positive effect on performance.
  • Help athletes derive maximum satisfaction and enjoyment from their sport.
  • Teach life skills that can be used in and out of the sport setting.
  • Encourage sportsmanship and ethical behavior.

Importantly, these objectives are very consistent with the values the Royals believe in as an organization.

We have consistently received outstanding feedback from players and parents alike on these sessions.  Even if you attended last year’s sessions, you will definitely benefit from a refresher before your Spring season starts!

Apply what they learn during the Spring Season and then carry it into your Cincy Royals Summer.
