The Bulldogs Team
Throughout the course, you will be completing assignments that, together, create a comprehensive performance enhancement plan for a hypothetical team called the Bulldogs. You will assume the role of either a performance enhancement consultant or a sport psychologist (someone with a doctorate and license in counseling or clinical psychology) who provides services to this team. You will decide who your Bulldogs team is—the specific sport, gender, level, and age of the athletes on the team. You will keep this hypothetical Bulldogs team consistent across all of the assignments this quarter. Think about how you plan to apply your sport psychology degree in the future and which populations you plan to work with. Let this be your guide in how you set up your hypothetical case study for the assignments.
For this discussion:
- Identify the professional role you will adopt to provide services to the team—either a performance enhancement consultant or a sport psychologist.
- Describe the Bulldogs team that will be your case study for the assignments. (The specific sport, gender, level, and age of the athletes on the team.)
- Provide an explanation for why you chose your particular case study and what you hope to gain from the assignments.
