How is my mental health?

How is my mental health?

This Nov 2020 Why Sports webinar comes with a trigger warning. Some of the information within this video is associated to suicide, physical and sexual abuse. The stigma associated with mental health problems means that many people don't feel they can share their feelings. This means people sometimes feel uncomfortable speaking about their experiences but it is healthy to know and to share how you are feeling. "There's plenty of evidence that taking part in physical activity can have a profound and positive impact on mental wellbeing. Being physically active can improve mood, decrease the chance of depression and anxiety and lead to a better and more balanced lifestyle" - Sport England. Physical activity is not only great for your body but it's great for your mind too. Research has shown that physical activity activates and releases chemicals in the brain that make you feel good, boost your self-esteem, enhance concentration, improve our body image and helps our sleep patterns. All of this for free! There are many ways that we can be active and in turn, improve our mental health. Taking part in regular activity can increase our ability to meet old and new friends/colleagues and can be a well-earned break away from the rigours of day to day life.

This animation shows the difference between child protection and safeguarding in a sports setting and looks in more depth at how children and young people can be further protected beyond their time at training sessions.

Developing Movement, Motion & Mobility for Swimmers: Vern Gambetta

Developing Movement, Motion & Mobility for Swimmers: Vern Gambetta

Coaches Corner welcomed Vern Gambetta, one of the leading innovators, practitioners, and experts on athlete development and progression; specifically in terms of their strength and athleticism. Vern has worked with Major League Baseball Teams, Elite Track & Field Athletes, and most recently, several USA Swimming Gold Medal Clubs, including Dynamo, Carmel, Mason Manta Rays, and Sarasota Sharks where he's currently working with their athletes on a regular basis. Among many principles, Vern's philosophy centres around creating "Fundamental Movement Skills," that empower athletes to understand how to effectively and efficiently move through the water with greater explosiveness and speed. Throughout the episode you'll learn about the key aspects behind teaching your athletes to develop skills that increase their spatial awareness and why that is critical to improved performance. Vern illustrates the significance of the following skillsets: 1-Awareness of Center 2-Whole-Body awareness 3-Swimmers "swim like they walk," understanding the bi-pedal aspects of a human in water. 3-Creating spaces for free and structured play. 4-Incorporating push-pull, lunge-squat, jump-hinge, crawl-climb movements in your dry-land. 5-Recovery.
