The Challenge

The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) faced a significant hurdle in educating athletes about the nuanced differences between threat and challenge perception in the body. Understanding how psychological responses can alter physiological reactions is crucial for optimal performance, but conveying these complex concepts proved daunting.

The Creative Approach

Poncho eLearning tackled this challenge head-on with a creative approach. We simplified the explanation into digestible pieces, adjusting the wording to match the literacy level of athletes. Through captivating animations, we demystified the intricate workings of threat vs. challenge perception, using a diverse array of sporting examples to reinforce understanding. By breaking down complex concepts into easily understandable terms, we empowered athletes to grasp the essence of psychological and physiological responses.

The Training Outcome

AIS athletes not only comprehended the complexities of human responses to threat vs. challenge but also retained meaningful information and techniques to optimise their performance. Armed with a deeper understanding, athletes were able to switch on more beneficial responses, ultimately enhancing their performance at the games. With Poncho eLearning’s custom eLearning solution, AIS not only elevated athlete education but also improved their approach to psychological training in sports at the elite level.
