Blog 30: HPT-PST Day 7: Performance Planning

Using all of the HPT – Psychological Skills Training consistently to perform is called Performance Planning.  In this version of Performance Planning, learn how to use the very important skill of a recovery routine to recover from adversity.


In a nutshell, a recovery routine or a recovery plan is a well thought out strategy to help you deal with unplanned events.

What unplanned events can happen at a competition?

Here is a list of some of the unplanned events that have happened to me or athletes I have coached:

  • Re-paired bracket
  • Competition bus leaves you
  • Lights go out
  • Electricity goes out & stops your match
  • Tournament is delayed
  • Bad call by referee
  • Lost match
  • Losing streak
  • Feeling pressure to win
  • Competition venue too cold
  • Competition venue too hot

How do you deal with these unplanned events and still compete at a high level?

The main point for a recovery plan/routine is to apply a systematic strategy to deal with unplanned stress (adversity) that disrupts productive performance(s).
