The Trinity College (Connecticut, USA) women's squash team is ranked #3 in the nation and is home to some to the top players from around the world. Trinity assistant coach Dr. Randy Lee wanted to do something to help his players cope with the mounting stress and pressures that come with success—while giving them something to improve overall performance.
Trinity head coach Wendy Bartlett wanted the team to feel that the court was a place where they could be relaxed and stay in control. So, in October 2009, Coach Bartlett and Coach Lee decided to introduce the Transcendental Meditation technique as part of the team's training program.
Now, seven months later, Coach Bartlett says the team has changed, describing the players as calmer and more focused than in the past. ''We've had just as many challenges this year as we've had any other year, but this year we've been able to handle them a lot better,'' she says.
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature a second article and video interview with Dr Randy Lee and Coach Bartlett, and the team speaking about their experience with Transcendental Meditation.
