This elective unit explores the application of psychology to the domain of sport and exercise. Whilst the unit does address the psychological components of NSW Board of Studies HSC Core 2: Factors affecting performance and HSC Option 4: Improving performance; students will also gain a general understanding of the relationship between psychology and performance. Topics will draw on students' own experiences of sport and exercise, either as participants or spectators, and will include consideration of motivation, anxiety, group dynamics, application of psychological theories to improve sporting performance, and the effects of sport and exercise on participants.
