This evening former Black Cap cricketer Mathew Sinclair will be helping Cook Islands cricketers unlock their mental ability to obtain peak performance.
The workshop will focus on goal setting and creating winning environments and will call on Sinclairs vast skills and experiences learned over his 15-year career at the top of cricket, which has included working with world renowned Cook Islands sport psychologist Gilbert Enoka.
Sinclair says that sportspeople should never underestimate the importance of goal setting and building mental toughness in reaching the top of their sport, a point that Telecom national manager Hamish Weir agrees with.
Within the Telecom national squad you can see a direct correlation between how particular players prepare and their performances, so Monday evenings session is going to be an insight for us in assisting Cook Islands cricket build a competitive edge in the international arena, Weir says.
The sessions are entirely free and male and female cricketers of all shapes and sizes are encouraged to head to the CISNOC meeting room this evening for a 5pm start and begin their journey toward becoming better sportsmen and women.
