However, the complete sport psychologist is interested in much more than performance enhancement and views sports as a vehicle for human enrichment. Thus, the psychology of sport can be thought of as an exciting subject, which is dedicated to the enhancement of both athletic performance and the psychological aspects of human enrichment. Therefore, one purpose of this course is to offer the student the opportunity to learn principles and applications as they apply to psychological aspects of sport.

The major focus of this development of strategies to encourage to sedentary people to exercise. The major focus of this component of the course will be on the psycho-social aspects of physical activity and exercise, on the implementation of behaviour change techniques, and the measurement and evaluation of intervention effectiveness. Major techniques for changing physical activity behavior and conditions influencing their effectiveness will be discussed. Techniques, which promote the maintenance of physical activity behavior will be reviewed.
Component 3. The areas of sport and exercise psychology have grown tremendously in recent years. This is evidenced by the numbers of athletes and coaches now looking to sport exercise psychology focuses on one specific area, that of identifying the and utilizing psychological theories and techniques which can be applied to sport and exercise to enhance performance.
