    Self-management guidelines to improve sport performance

    • Concentrate on general skills first; focus on the details later

    • Do not emphasize too many details at one time (paralysis by analysis)

    • When skill is learned, skill analysis of performance may be helpful

    • Early stages, avoid competition

    • Sports skills must be over learned

    • Performance may get worse before it gets better

    • Mental practice may aid in learning

    • Try not to practice in front of other people

    • There is no substitute for good instruction
