Closing the Gap: Applied Sport Psychology for High School, by David L. Rockwood, is the first Sport Psychology textbook specifically targeting high school students. It is intended to be used for a one semester high school course, but it could also be read and used by any athlete or coach interested in improving their game.
It is easy to read and focuses on the application of the principles and techniques, more than abstract theory. There are two (2) versions of the book:
There is also
Curriculum Guide & Quiz Master to accompany the
student textbook. It does not contain the actual text from the student
edition, but supplemental teaching resources for the high school sport
psychology teacher. It includes recomended course organization, tests
and quizzes, a guide for starting a sport psychology class in your school,
and more. (I have also included many downloadable teaching resources right
here on this site.) $23.75 per book.
