CONCENTRATION GRID – MENTAL SKILLS TRAINING/EXERCISE FOR ATHLETES/STUDENT-ATHLETES (MENTAL FOCUS GRIDS FOR USE BY COACHES/TEACHERS/TRAINERS AND SPORTS PERFORMANCE/PSYCHOLOGY PROFESSIONALS)
Concentration Grid is a web/mobile device app implementation of the mental skills exercise that many winning coaches and sports performance/psychology professionals have used with athletes/others (typically with pen/paper and stopwatch) to develop/improve and practice focus and concentration.
The Concentration Grid app is now available for Apple/iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) and Android devices. Concentration Grid is also available for free gameplay on the web at http://www.concentrationgrid.com (app download is 99 cents at Apple and Google Play/Amazon app stores).
Concentration Grid provides convenient gameplay/replay and records time/performance data and history (the app also integrates sharing of results on social media). Concentration grids (sometimes called mental focus grids) can be generated in multiple sizes ranging from 3 to 14 columns/rows.
The objective of Concentration Grid is to select in sequence each of the numbers in the (randomly generated) grid. Performance is timed as the athlete/individual completes the exercise. The level of competitive challenge/fun can be varied by changing the size of the grid – by selecting the number of rows and columns. Smaller grids challenge dexterity and quickness; larger grids require sustained focus and attention to complete. Try various grid sizes with your athletes – test speed/dexterity with a small grid (such as a 4×4 grid) or challenge attention/focus with a bigger grid (such as a 9×9 grid).
Concentration Grid has many uses for coaches/teachers and education/sports performance professionals: student/athlete/patient assessment/evaluation and benchmarking, mental skills exercise/conditioning for athletes/others, individual/athlete challenge/development, team exercise in training/practice segments, individual or intra-squad/team building competition, etc. (The mental focus grid exercise is particularly popular with baseball and softball coaches.)
Concentration Grid can be used in many different training/conditioning environments – in quiet spaces (office, home, classroom, lab), in the training room/gym or on the field during workouts/practices, in challenging/distracting conditions (modeling game day with noise, etc.), on road trips, etc.
Concentration Grid provides a fun competitive challenge for students, athletes, coaches, trainers, teachers, parents – for anyone, young and old. Try the app with your athletes and share feedback.
Challenge your athletes … challenge your students … challenge your teams … challenge yourself.
