Stress Free Sports (SFS) provides holistic development of the individual and team through building inner silence, the vital element so easily lost within the sound and fury of athletic competition.
This is the key difference between SFS and other approaches to sports training and competition. While other approaches focus on acquisition of skills and mental tools, SFS aligns the athlete with their inner alertness to support clearer more powerful thinking and action.
Coaches today know something is missing from their players' training and competitive routines. Some counterproductively fill natural rest gaps that punctuate play with even more dynamism (e.g., rope jumping during timeouts, never sitting down on tennis changeovers); others realize rest is needed but often do little more than exhort their athletes "Breathe!" during gaps in the action on court or on the field.
