The psychological approach taken by Swim Ireland is one which aims to support the development of the mental qualities required by an individual to thrive in both their daily performance environment (DPE) and also within the competitive arena. Through work with several experts in the field of performance psychology, we deliver a combination of group based and individual sessions to our key athletes through both of our National Centres. Moving forwards to Tokyo 2020, our “challengers in green” initiative aims to ensure our athletes are able to deliver their best performance on the day that matters.
