The Need in Our Industry
Graduate programs teach the sport psych content pretty well, but their focus is not on preparing people to make a living in this industry! There are hundreds who graduate annually with Masters degrees or higher in the sport psych industry, but only a handful survive trying to build an applied career.
Obviously knowing what mental skills are doesn’t mean you’ll be good at improving performance, and then there’s the business side of marketing, sales & client management. It should be no surprise that without specific guidance & support, very few last long and their degrees go unused.
- Masters or Doctorate in Sport Psychology or a related field. Many begin the Mental Trainer Certification while finishing their graduate degree
- A letter of interest in an applied career + CV & graduate transcripts
- Internet access, computer, webcam
- 3-5 months, including supervision
- 1on1 sessions online with a senior CMT using video conferencing
