Professor Emeritus of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences

Attached are the descriptions of applied sport psychology and coaching workshops which are specifically designed for sport practitioners, coaches, and athletes. Most workshops can be presented to audiences representing many sports or specific sport groups. The intent of the workshops is to produce behavior and knowledge changes in participants so they will proceed with their sporting involvements in a more effective manner.

The offerings described can be presented as individual meetings or can be combined to produce intense and in-depth developments of the topics associated with applied sport psychology and coaching. Week-end packages of these topics are particularly effective.

Professor Rushall can be contacted by email at or by telephone at 619-469-1537.
