Sports psychology is a branch of psychology which not only studies the behavior of sportspersons but also reveals the impact of all the psychological variables which are directly or indirectly, positively or negatively related to sports performances. Many studies have been done to see the impact of psychological variables on sports performances. Preparation of the mind of players is as important as the preparation of their body, because under the stress of competition players react physically as well as mentally in such a way that it can adversely affect their performance. Players become highly tensed; they worry about their performance and also about the outcome of the competition and find it difficult to concentrate on the given task. In other words, their concentration goes down which leads to poor performance in sports. In the present times, coaches and physical educators have become more aware and concerned about the psychological and sociological aspects of sports rather than merely physiological fitness and skill in various activities. They realize that these characteristics of the participants contribute more towards their success than only physical fitness.
