— Steamboat Springs High School is hosting Dr. Gregory A. Dale, a renowned professor of sport psychology and sport ethics at Duke University, this week. Dale, who is also the director of sport psychology and leadership programs for Duke athletics, has been featured on Good Morning America, ESPN, MSNBC, and Court TV, as well as numerous national radio programs.

Dale will host three workshops while in Steamboat, beginning today with SSHS student-athletes from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., titled “It’s a mental thing: 5 keys to improving performance and enjoying the sport.”

Then, he will host a workshop for coaches from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., titled “Developing the Credible Coach: A Model for Success.”

Finally, from 5:30 pm. to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dale will hold a workshop for parents. The title of the workshop is, “The fulfilling ride: A parent’s guide to helping athletes have a successful sports experience.” The workshop is based on his book, “The Fulfilling Ride.”

All workshops will be held in the SSHS auditorium.
