Abstract


This study aimed to know the effect of a suggested mental training program on developing the performance level in long jump. The researchers used the experimental approach as it fits the study nature.
The sample consisted of (20) students of the Mua’th bin Jabal secondary school for males and represented a percent of (21.27%) of the total population (94). The sample was divided into two equal groups, (10) students each, the first is the experimental group on which the mental training program was applied while the second was the control group which underwent the traditional training program.
The researchers used means, standard deviations, and paired samples t - test available in (SPSS) software.
Results revealed that there were significant differences between the pre- and post-tests for the experimental group in favor of the post-test and there were significant differences between the experimental and control groups in the post-test in favor of the experimental group on some variables.
The researches recommend to use mental training programs, in addition to physical training programs and to use different mental feedback methods such as video, and direct orientation by the coach… etc, and to generalize the results obtained over the athletic (track and field) clubs and coaches to benefit from these results.
