PlantationEagles.com – Feb 13, 2006 – The Plantation Eagles Soccer Club would like to announce our first Mental Prep Seminar with Dr. John F. Murray on Feb. 21, @ Volunteer Park in Plantation. This seminar will be presented to our u13-u18 players and parents. Dr. Murray will cover topics such as:

-Hard Work/Discipline/Effort
-Resilience/Bouncing Back from Adversity
-Energy Control/Emotional Management
-Goal Setting
-Performance vs. Outcome

“I look forward to having Dr. Murray at the club. We have put lots of
energy into the physical aspect of the game and we tend to forget about the psychological. This is a great opportunity for our players to gain insight on how to improve characteristics such as confidence, hard work and concentration. Parents will also get some education on how they can assist their children and their mental prep. It will also be great for the players and parents to get an experts view on the “performance v. outcome” issue that seems to be a big issue in south Florida soccer.”
