Create a Better Team by Improving Focus!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Monday, September 1, 2014

Coach Rick McGuire presents a vital, but neglected skill that is critical to outstanding athletic performance – the skill of Focus! In this engaging and highly informative video, Coach McGuire, the former head track coach at the University of Missouri, explains and demonstrates how to teach your athletes the Skill of Focus.

Focus is important – but it is a skill that can be taught. Focus is “thinking right.” What is it that all coaches want? All coaches want their athletes to “show up” every day and for every drill in practice as well as in their race. This video is about how wrong thoughts hurt performance, while the right thoughts will enhance performance.
1) What is Focus?: Focus is a skill. Focus is a thought. Focus is controllable. Focus is a choice. You make the choice – you take control. You can learn this skill. This skill of Focus is the wellspring of peak performance – of being “in the zone,” of being “in the Flow!”

This video came from Championship Productions’ DVD, Teaching Track & Field Athletes the Skill of Focus.  To view more track & field videos from America’s top coaches and athletes, click here.
