Book Club: Becoming a True Athlete
This 3-part workshop is for athletes of all ages as well as anyone that supports them - coaches, staff, parents etc.
You will need to purchase 'Becoming a True Athlete' for your participants in advance of the first session: https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-True-Athlete-Philosophy-Flourishing/dp/191411003X
You will meet with the author, Laurence Halsted, to discuss certain chapters of the book together, and reflect on how your team can integrate the practices within the book.
The workshop also gives an overview of the sporting landscape and culture that highlights the urgent need for us to find a better, more values-led approach. We present The True Athlete Philosophy as a counterpoint to the disastrous win-at-all-costs approach that currently dominates, a philosophy which points to a way forward where athletes can begin to thrive and not just survive in the system.
We then take a dive into three key mental-emotional strategies which can help an athlete live The True Athlete Philosophy in their daily life, in sport and beyond, providing a fresh new view on what constitutes a resilient mindset.
