Mental skills training and educational workshops are effective in improving athletes’ use and understanding of the mental processes required for successful performance (Cumming, Hall, & Shambrook, 2004). However, the specific process of implementing workshops has been neglected in the literature. Thus, the presentation outlines and describes the step-by-step process of developing a workshop series. The information presented is based on a pilot workshop series with elite university cricket players in the UK. Furthermore, the workshop series was multidisciplinary in nature and included, physiological, nutritional and psychological sessions. Each domain was allotted four sessions and the workshop series was provided during a full year. The mental aspects included emphasis on goal setting, routines, performance under pressure, and improving decision making.
