It was tough getting up for a 7am Sports Psychology Session this morning, but definitely worth it after great discussions, debating, and group work. Our men’s team had their session last night.
We were fortunate to welcome Adam Naler Ed.D., CC-AASP to our student lounge at Ingalls Rink, who brings over 10 years of applied sport psychology
experience (Olympic, professional, collegiate, and elite junior) Beyond serving as an educational resource for athletes, coaches and organizations, Dr. Naylor currently teaches at Boston University. Over the years he has also taught sport psychology classes at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, Mt. Ida College, and Middlesex Community College and sports
studies class at Trinity College. He has published in various academic journals and sport science online resources and sits on the sport science and player development committees of a variety of sports organizations. He is currently the Column Editor on Sport Psychology and Counseling for The International Journal of Athletic Therapy and Training and a contributor to the Titlest Performance Institute.
The girls were given the task of figuring how they would like Yale Hockey to be in 15 years. After brainstorming and debates, they came up with three powerful words, Confidence, Passion, Relentlessness. Witty Coach UK figured out that those three words as an acronym are; C.P.R. so whenever you need to be revived on the ice or off whether you are tired or struggling think CPR!
Adam is going to remain in contact with our seniors throughout season and come back for another session in December. He is also following our Twitter page. @YaleWHockey.
