This article outlines a practical and evidence-based framework that shows individuals who support athletes how to promote positive responses to performance pressure. The ability to deal with pressure is one of the most important things an athlete can develop, and in this article I introduce, explain and practically demonstrate the concept of ‘tipping the balance’. This concept offers simple and effective strategies for enabling your athletes to react well to pressure, bringing together contemporary research evidence and practical experience. Use the certificated elearning assessment as proof of continuing professional development along with the group chat topics as a way of consolidating your understanding and sharing this knowledge with your colleagues.
