PORTLAND, OR – December 2012 — Sport Psychology Institute Northwest is
working on a program with the student athlete skiers and snowboarders of
Windells Academy in Mount Hood, Oregon. Trainers of SPINW are utilizing The
Sports Mindset Gameplan, a recently published book by SPINW Director Brian
Baxter.

The book uses a combination of instruction, questions, and goal setting in
an interactive workbook format, and is designed to be used in conjunction
with technical, tactical, and physical training. Going through the workbook
will personalize the sport psychology techniques to each athlete as they
pertain to skateboarding, snowboarding and skiing. This will help to build
their confidence step by step, and maintain it in the long term, as they
train and compete.

Sport Psychology Institute NW trainer Jimmy Yoo is also working with both
students and coaches on its Competitive Skills Training for Athletes Program
(CST). CST is a conditioning of the mind to become mentally tuned and is
designed to enhance overall performance. Training includes working on
confidence building by teaching visualization techniques, focus and
self-talk, breathing techniques, goal setting and time management.
Yoo works with athletes in various stages of competition and those
individuals transitioning in and out of the sport, such as athletes recovering from
injury and planning to return to competition.
