HeadStartPro provides athletes and coaches with fundamental skills in developing self-awareness in their sport environment. Their terminology provides a solid structure for an athlete to base their sport experience with the HeadStart context, and the anecdotal videos provide good examples of how the error causing states can negatively impact sport performance. This online program is a good tool to open an athlete's awareness to the mental factors that can impact their sport performance, and opens the possibility for more specific mental skill training when the athlete has a grasp of the self-awareness skills the program advocates. The online format makes it easy to go at your own pace with the program.
