‘Improving Concentration in Sport’ by Singapore Physical Education Association (SPEA)

(For all NROC Coaches)


An optimal level of concentration is essential to achieve peak performance in sport. We often heard about athletes ‘losing their focus’ or ‘can’t concentrate’ during crucial moments in the competition. In this workshop, we will discuss the key components of good and effective concentration. Drawing from Nideffer’s attentional control training principles, the trainer will provide hands-on activities and discuss strategies that can be adopted to improve athletes’ concentration.

This workshop will be conducted by Dr. Zason Chian (Lecturer (Physical Education and Sports Science Academic Group), National Institute of Education (NIE)). Dr. Zason has 15 years of working experience at the Ministry of Education (MOE) with former roles including Sport Secretary (Junior College level) and Senior Specialist (Former Co-Curricular Activities Branch (CCAB)). Dr. Zason also holds concurrent appointments as the Vice-President (High Performance) in the Singapore Canoe Federation (SCF) and is also a committee member at SPEA.

Over the years, Dr. Zason was often invited by schools to conduct mental skills workshops for student-athletes and teachers-in-charge.
