On Thursday, May 3, the FAST 13 & Over swimmers had the opportunity to hear Dr. Rob Bell. Dr. Bell is a renowned sports psychologist coach who works with professional golfers, Indy Eleven soccer players, and the University of Notre Dame's athletes - just to name a few. Based in Indianapolis, FAST is fortunate to be establishing a relationship with Dr. Bell that will help our athletes develop mental toughness as they grow - in their swimming careers and in life.
At the pool, we are talking with the swimmers about Dr. Bell's NO FEAR concept - and what each letter stands for. No one wants fear holding them back - and this especially applies as our athletes stand behind the blocks and prepare to race. Overcoming and embracing these fears is a great skill that will help our athletes in the years to come. Check out the NO FEAR video and see what your athletes are learning.
If you'd like to learn more about Dr. Bell and the resources that he brings to FAST, check out the Dr. Rob Bell website and listen to his "15 Minutes of Mental Toughtness" podcast - especially the one featuring professional fisherman, Todd Hollowell! We are thrilled to be able to bring amazing resources to our athletes!
Thank you, Dr. Bell for sharing your wisdown and insights as our athletes strive to achieve!
