Summary 

The ability to concentrate on appropriate stimuli during athletic endeavours has long been proposed as one of the most important skills underlying athletic success. This 2003 publication is based on the six presentations at a workshop which aimed to stimulate and encourage further critical evaluation and debate concerning the state of theory and research in the field of concentration skills training and to highlight potential avenues for further research and intervention. It also sought to encourage debate and evaluation through examining the experiences of a number of applied sport psychologists working with athletes to develop their levels of concentration.
