TO THE INNER GAME AND PERFORMER-CENTRED COACHING
In any game or human endeavour there are two parts – an outer game played against an external
opponent to achieve an external goal and an inner game which takes place in the mind of the player and
is played against such obstacles as lapses in concentration, nervousness, self doubt and self
condemnation. How we play the inner game can either inhibit or allow our potential. Clearly this model
of 'performance equals potential minus interference' has implications for coaches.
This six-hour course gives coaches a clear understanding of the underlying principles of the Inner
Game: focused attention, trust, choice and non-judgemental awareness. These fundamentals enable
students to begin to master their inner game and to learn more naturally and efficiently. The process
recognises their individuality and encourages greater involvement and therefore motivation. Most
importantly, this style of coaching is a catalyst for inspiring self-belief.
* Experience the Inner Game principles as a player and as a coach.
* Begin to build your own set of awareness raising drills for technical, tactical, physical and
mental skill development.
* Test drive Inner Game techniques to improve focus and motivation.
* Improve your ability to use performer-centred coaching skills.

the intricacies of goal setting, asking effective questions, listening, summarising and giving
feedback. We also anticipate exploring the balance of instruction and performer-centred skills in
