The Big Idea

The USA National Football League Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning once said this about high pressure situations: “Pressure is something you feel when you don’t know what the hell you’re doing.” The subject matter of this research paper aims to help coaches help athletes learn how to be pressured and know what the hell they’re doing.

Making quick and good decisions—collectively and individually—under pressure in team invasion sports is often the difference-maker in any competitive experience.
