Valeo Futbol Club has again reiterated their goal of developing competitive athletes, outstanding citizens, and strong leaders with the introduction of a new mindfulness program. Tagged, The Edge, the program is designed to teach players purposeful, moment-to-moment awareness without judgment. The practice of mindfulness will help players better manage stress, reduce anxiety, foster resilience, build mental toughness and ultimately give them the competitive advantage as aspiring professionals.
Valeo Futbol Club is looking to make a difference with their launch of The Edge. The Club recognizes that across the globe athletes struggle with challenges which may deter them from making the best of their careers and rising to the highest possible echelon. With so few mindfulness programs designed to help aspiring footballers build their mental strength and enhance their psychological development they saw the opportunity to step up. According to experts, sports are 10% physical and 90% mental. By making the profound connection between the mind and the body players will gain self-awareness and confidence that will benefit them on and off the field.
This program offers many different teaching modalities to appeal to all learning styles. Methods of teaching will include individual,, small and , large groups sessions, daylong trainings, and individualized materials such as guides, worksheets and technology applications such as podcasts and live streaming.
Valeo has demonstrated their commitment to creating a culture of mindfulness, herefore, every coach on staff is being trained in evidence-based mindfulness practice.
