The Effectiveness of Mental Skill Training

Mental skill training is not different from physical training as it takes time and effort to develop mental skills such as ability to cope, control attentional focus or effectively plan for performance. And yet it continues to receive little attention until things go wrong. Therefore, our work has investigated the effectiveness of mental skill training on performance within a range of sports varying from cricket to esports.
