Mental Tools in Sport

There are many psychological demands placed on athletes in competition. In order for an athlete to properly prepare for performance, regulate their thoughts and emotions in a game, and remain calm under pressure, they will be required to use skills that extend beyond the physical aspect of their sport. PacificSport VI will be hosting a series of workshops focusing on mental tools athletes can use to enhance their athletic performance.

Reflections on Barsby Football

Reflections on Barsby Football

I don’t know much about the details of the Barsby incident. Rumours abound about whether or not those involved are even current players in the program. Regardless, it is deplorable no matter how one looks at it.

Here is what I do know. 

The Barsby Football program is one of the classiest sport programs in Nanaimo. For over 20 years the coaching staff have stressed that the program is about much more than just football. It emphasizes academics, integrity, citizenship and loyalty.
