ABSTRACT

The implementation of mental imagery in the badminton sport coaching is often neglected, especially for beginner badminton coaches. As an integral part of psychological skill training (PST), the intervention of mental imagery could be conducted in education and training programs. The objective of the study is to help improve the knowledge, attitude, and skill of badminton coaches of the beginners about how mental imagery could be integrated in the training process. The program was conducted in a workshop and coaching practical training involving 20 beginner badminton coaches and 56 beginner student-athletes aged 10 - 13. The results of the analysis showed that the education and training program were successful on improving knowledge, attitude, and skill of the badminton coaches for beginners regarding the implementation of integrating mental imagery in a training process. Hence, it can be concluded that the applicable conceptual framework of using mental imagery developed in this study can be used as an applicative model for implementing mental imagery programs in an integrated manner with the training process.
