Strong Minds is an interactive learning activity focused on developing adaptive coping skills. Athletes learn about and try a few different active coping strategies as they move through the stations. Before exiting, athletes identify the strategies they like best and volunteers provide them with visual reminders to use these tools in competition and in daily life.
The screenings take about 10 - 30 minutes to complete and are performed between the athletes competing. Athletes pass through the various stations and at the conclusion of the screenings, the athlete is given a pinwheel and stress ball to continue practicing stress management in their daily lives.
