Project Details

The Centre for Wellbeing Science and Brighton Grammar School collaborated for research into the co-design of an optimal performance program for secondary school boys (Program).  The Program drew on evidence from sport and well-being science, coaching, biofeedback, stress management, education and technology for the latest scientific innovations available to enhance academic and sporting performance.  The Program involved training in relaxation, mindfulness and emotion regulation strategies using gamification and biofeedback.

There had been two groups of participants; the co-design group and the pilot group. This project used self-report surveys to inquire about the optimal performance program experience and to provide feedback on the Program, its application and its effects.
