Playing Consistent Hockey

Improve Consistency With Mental Training

In “Sports Psychology Sessions with Doc,” Dr. Patrick Cohn answers a question from Adam who tends to struggle with his consistency and wants to know how to get his great performance back.

Do you tend to struggle with your consistency in hockey games?

Adam wrote in and said:

“I’m 17 and I have a question about inconsistency… I play hockey and this season was just a perfect one but now I made it to my national team U18 and had just a few awful games and the worst part is that my team is counting on me as I play the first two lines and I should be the one to carry the team. How do I get back to the performance that I had all year long?”

This week, Dr. Cohn talks about:

How you can play consistent hockey again.

All atheltes look for consistency in their performance…

“After your session, Mason had a game. He had the best game so far! He hustled, shot, no goals but two assists but he was cool with it because his focus was on shooting and not scoring (finally), defended well with his hands – finally put it all together. It was fun to watch and you could tell he felt really good about it.”
~Kelly, Lacrosse mom

“The sessions have been so helpful. Dawson has been playing really well and more importantly feeling great about it all.”
~Kecia Muller, Lacrosse Parent
