The psychology of not making the team in sports- pandemic 2020

The emergence of a pandemic:

Professional sports around the world were in preparation and scheduling their performance during mid-March 2020. As a business, games took an immediate turn with the athletes’ inability and imminent closure, and the failure of managers, coaches, and the mental performance of the consultants in continuing their onsite roles in the teams. Our contributors were indulged in making the action plans to meet the closure of the training settings and were communicating the delicate plan of closure to staff and players who already knew that the games were trending to a stoppage along with the people working away from their families serving clients with safety and health travel guidelines because they made some arrangements to come back to their homes residences.

A crisis transition or the ripple effect of an abrupt stoppage is known to leave the coaches and the athletes with emotional and psychological challenges. There are increased cases of suicide, domestic violence, and bigotry at a population level, where athletes are included. With social isolation, one highly publicized challenge, we know that each player is different in their engagement. However, problems with social distancing are encountered nationwide. They have been written within the cultural sports psychology that identifies variations in individual and collective approaches across and within different cultures. Several nationalities and cultures are formal regarding socially accepted distance, where people maintain excessive distance other than close family members; the range may be six feet.

Based on what we know from identifying the athlete and its research and practices with practical exposures, amateur, high-performance athletes and professionals emphasize their athletic identities. There are individual differences between professional sports and teams in sports where athletes join in and coordinate with each other.

Current interventions: 

We have needed to make an organic approach because there is a consensus among the authors working effectively with the clients. The only question everyone has asked from the players is what kind of support they are looking for during this pandemic crisis. In the beginning, some of them were uncertain about how to respond to such an open-ended approach, wrapped up in a precarious circumstance- COVID-19. These players are at their homes now and not among their fellow players; however, they need to feel that they are trending effectively in their athletic careers. There are specific approaches for follow-up which have been integrated into the work, some of which are holistic and some sport-specific. These strategies have been applied via online means, including regular use of video platforms along with chat discussions and forums with teams and individuals.

The path forward:

There is an unseen inspiration in words: the players, coaching staff, and consultants of mental health and performance have gone through COVID-19. We find ourselves working positively to improve sports as a part of life.
