Elevating human performance and well-being
AASP members work with people of every age and skill level across the performance spectrum to strengthen their “inner edge” and realize their greatest potential. We serve performers in sport, exercise, tactical, business, arts, and medical populations.
AASP offers resources and publications aimed at keeping members on the cutting edge of the applied practice and science of sport and performance psychology. AASP is the only place to earn the accredited CMPC®. This certification validates professionals' expertise in helping performers develop and strengthen their mental, self-regulatory, and life skills to optimize performance, enjoyment, and personal development.
