Session Description - The choices athletes make can move them toward or away from achieving their goals and finding success. The "Choice Point" is the space you are in, right before you make a decision. It's a moment where you pause and connect with your why before you make a decision. In the session, we'll also dive into a mental performance introduction, how emotions influence performance, and standards of behaviour. The goal is for everyone to leave the session learning one or two new pieces of information that they can immediately implement.
