Concentration

Exposure in training

Focusing

Thought stopping

I will explain to my coach what makes me lose my concentration when fielding (spectators and watching other games), I will make sure that this happens in training so that I can practice concentrating on my game and not what is going on around me.

I plan to focus on my game and try not to be distracted with things. The things that might I lose my focus on by looking at other game or messing round with other people who not batting. To make me focusing on my game I have think about every step I take. I will focus on the batter and what they are doing as they could hit the ball tome at any time, so I need to be alert. To imagine my coach shout ‘STOP’ in my head to bring my attention back to the game when I do lose concentration and I realise.

Session 1 Review

Date Completed:

General feelings on how the session went.

In my session some of it went to plan, not everything went well, I never used thought stopping that much and need to try it next time.

I planned for exposure in training; i told my coach that I easily lose my concentration. We were in groups and we were talking to each other about our problems, some of us had similar problems and others had different. We could improve this by participating in more games and talking to each other, so this could prevent me losing concentration as my mind would be on the game and on the players.

Focusing – I tried to focus on my game and not to get easily distracted. I did get distracted when other players were shouting at each other, this is when I had to try and stay focused on the game and not on the players shouting by trying to ignore the shouting and concentrating on the game, so this did go well at the time.
