Horizon’s Unique Sports Performance Psychology Assessment
Assessing physical talent is an obvious component when evaluating an athlete as a prospective player for high school, college, or professional level sports. Recruiters observe athletes in action, conduct various physical endurance tests, and review a player’s stats and videos. An area of increased interest at the high school and college levels are psychological assessments that evaluate how the athlete approaches the game, their teammates and the coaching and training staff. Building confidence, a strong work ethic and teaching various visualization techniques are examples of how psychological assessments get built into an athlete’s training.
Our Psychological Assessment can offer insight into an athlete’s mind and allows HORIZON trainers to:
• Pinpoint mental blocks that restrict the athlete from reaching their full potential
• Uncover the athlete’s strengths and weaknesses so that training can be designed accordingly
• Assess personality traits, that through psychology research, have been proven to have an impact on performance such mental toughness, competitiveness, and focus
• Test takes approximately 30-40 minutes to complete
• Testing is conducted on-site at Horizon Personal Training Centers and is evaluated by the Horizon Sports Performance training staff and included in your Sports Performance Binder
Our Psychological Assessment Report/Results Include:
• Introduction and Score: Overview and Overall Athletic Competition Evaluation Score
• Coachability: Assesses whether an athlete’s disposition and attitude are likely to benefit from coaching, or could cause difficulties or friction
