Drey Ricks developed specific tools, mantras, and movements that has helped players stay calm under intense situations.
“Emotions play an important role in sports, after all we are driven by our passions. Dealing with pressure is a by-product of being an athlete. For better or worse, it’s something each player will face in every form and on a consistent basis. From training to competitions, there’s no escaping the demands of being in a pressurized environment.”, Drey Ricks.
It’s true that we’re all born with different personalities, and therefore some personalities are better equipped with dealing with stress than others. Nonetheless, sports psychology teaches us that we all have the power to reframe the way we think and put the right measures in place to cope with challenges. Drey Ricks is a firm believer that staying calm under pressure is the key to conquering the moment.
