Last night the Highland Wildcats headed to Millburn Academy (the home of the current Highland Academy Community League champions, the Millburn Academy Eagles) for a session with top sports psychologist, Donald MacNaughton.
Donald’s worked with Winter Olympic athletes, Rugby League teams, professional football teams and in motor racing. He has also been a part of the Wildcats’ campaigns since the 2011 season. He’s a published author with his first book being a top seller on Amazon and his second book just recently being released.
The interactive session focused on goal setting and mindset preperation. It’s hoped that with the knowledge gained from the session – and then being put into practice – will give both the Youth and Junior Wildcats the edge as they head into the 2014 season. These are also skills that will transfer over into everyday life.
