CONCENTRATION GRID – TRAINING/ASSESSMENT TOOL FOR COACHES AND SPORTS PERFORMANCE/PSYCHOLOGY STAFF (MENTAL FOCUS GRIDS)
Concentration Grid is a web/mobile device app implementation of the mental skills exercise used by athletic coaches and sports performance/psychology professionals for student-athletes (typically with pen/paper and stopwatch) to develop/improve and practice focus and concentration.
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 Concentration Grid app (now available for Apple/iOS and Android devices) generates concentration grids for convenient use by athletes and students (with coaches/teachers and trainers/staff) as a mental skills training/assessment tool or for mental skills exercise/development – or for competitive challenge/fun.
Concentration Grid provides convenient gameplay/replay on a mobile device/phone or computer and records time/performance data and history on the device/computer (the app also integrates sharing of results/data on social media).
Concentration grids (sometimes called mental focus grids) can be generated in multiple sizes ranging from 3 to 14 columns/rows. 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 (try a 4×4 grid); larger grids require sustained focus and attention to complete (try a 9×9 grid).
Concentration Grid can be used with students/athletes by coaches/teachers and education/sports performance professionals for assessment/evaluation and benchmarking, mental skills exercise/conditioning, individual/athlete development, team exercise in training/practice segments, 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 multiple 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.), during team travel/road trips, etc.
Concentration Grid gameplay is free on the web at http://www.tryconcentrationgrid.com (app download is 99 cents at Apple and Google Play/Amazon.com app stores).
Concentration Grid provides a competitive challenge (and fun) for students, athletes, coaches, trainers, teachers, parents – young and old.
Challenge your athletes … your students … yourself. Challenge your team.
