WITH SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY TO SUCCESS 

What can I do as a coach to instill a winning mentality in my team? What methods are there to deal with pressure in the best possible way? How can I best prepare my team mentally for important games or a penalty shootout? How do I turn a group into a functioning team that can outgrow itself as a unit? What can we do in the club to ensure that all employees work together successfully in the long term? 

You are a coach or in another leading position in the club and want to support teams, players and employees to show optimal performance and to be successful in the long run? In addition to football expertise, this requires interpersonal skills and knowledge of (sports) psychological methods. “Coaches are in demand as psychologists” and “Games are decided in the mind” are phrases that you read and hear again and again. Many coaches and managers feel that there is still hidden potential in this area, but do not feel optimally prepared for this part of their work. 

This is exactly the gap we want to close with this program. Scientifically sound methods, practical findings and experience from the field of sports psychology are prepared by experienced sports psychologists in such a way that you can implement them immediately in your club. 

Thanks to the unique semi-virtual study concept (e-learning and attendance phases), you can also complete our modern further education while working. Our motto is: From professionals for professionals. 

It is therefore best to register immediately for the next certificate course.

YOUR ADVANTAGES: YOUR TEAM, YOURSELF AND YOUR CLUB BENEFIT 

Participants in the CASv “Sports Psychology Skills for Coaches and Managers” expand and improve the key skills for their field of activity. The know-how acquired in the certificate offers participants a fundamental advantage over their competitors and creates confidence among the decision-makers of a club. 

As part of the CASv, you will focus intensively on your leadership style, because successful coaches and managers are “people-catchers”. This requires both a supportive attitude and methodological competence, e.g. in the areas of communication and conflict management. In the program, we will support you in an application-oriented and practical way. 

Coaches can create and promote mental strength in their players and the team or destroy it. In the program, you will learn what you can do to promote mental strength in your players and the team, based on specific situations from everyday football. Get to know the tips and tricks of sports psychologists. 

Strong teams do not develop on their own. In the certificate, you will not only learn how to build and develop a strong team, but also how to establish a performance-enhancing team identity and team culture in the long term. 

Every leader must also lead themselves. Learn how you can use sport psychological methods for emotion regulation and for your own stress management, so that you can still be a committed leader many years from now. 

The long-term success of a club is based on the commitment of competent employees and dedicated players. Supportive structures and processes within the club play a major role in this. In the program we therefore also deal with how these can be created and installed.

YOUR CAREER OPPORTUNITIES AFTER THE CERTIFICATE 

Great technical expertise is something everyone has in performance-oriented football. The decisive factor is whether the technical expertise can also be “taken on the road”. And that depends not least on interpersonal relationships. It depends on whether you, as a coach, can reach your players and get them in the right mental frame of mind.

On whether communication throughout the club is good and whether everyone is pulling in the same direction. 

This program will help you to really put your expertise on the road through sports psychology skills.
