Gold Medal Mindset with Tom Bates
09:00 to 12:30, 03 March 2024
Ashville College Sports Centre, Harrogate
We are so excited to be introducing our Gold Medal Mindset with AP Race Performance Psychologist Tom Bates!
Every performance must start with one thing… Belief. Across this incredible powerful event, swimmers, parents, and coaches alike will have the chance to hear from world renowned Performance Psychologist Tom Bates on how to take performance to the next level through the power of self-belief.
We have created the ultimate two-session workshop to give you the best opportunity possible to understand how to maximise your mindset so you believe you can deliver when the time comes. This will be fast-paced, interactive, and most importantly high energy.
We are ready… are you?
For nearly two decades Tom has been studying and applying his knowledge of performance psychology all over the world through various sports and to some of the world’s highest performing athletes, including Triple Olympic Champion and AP Race co-founder, Adam Peaty OBE.
Tom has a way of engaging everyone that he speaks to, so you feel like you are on the edge of your seat with his revolutionary ideas. The sessions will help you to unlock your mind allowing you get the most out of your mind whether it is a performance in the pool, in your work or even if your day-to-day life.
Ed, the co-founder of AP Race will be presenting with Tom in the first session of the morning. In this he will challenge Tom himself on how we are all find more within ourselves to perform the way we want to when it matters.
Ed is the co-founder of AP Race, through a very challenging journey of being an athlete, a coach and business owner Ed and Tom have always had a huge amount of synergy in the way they think belief is so important to harness so we can be sure we can achieve what we dream of.
Everyone is different. Everyone has their own “reason why”. Everyone has their own motivations in whatever they do. Knowing your reason why is good, but finding the way to truly believe in your dreams and believe that they are possible is what will take your performance and you dreams to the next level.
Through this session Ed and Tom will be discussing different ways that we can all believe in ourselves, why we should believe in ourselves, and how this can help us stand proud with the confidence and belief within ourselves. As we line up to perform, so many of us think to ourselves “imagine if it goes wrong”… we are ready to change this to “imagine if it goes right”.
This will be an extremely high energy fast-paced session, where Tom will be engaging with you to ensure that you leave the event understanding how to access your “peak performance state”. This is important as it will help you to understand how to switch between your true self and performer self.
Through this session Tom will take you through a multitude of different techniques that will help you create your peak performance state. This will include visualisation, self-talk, understanding how to manipulate your emotions and many more.

Message from Tom
I am so excited to be running this Gold Medal Mindset workshop as we explore the key skills and exercises used to achieve Olympic Gold Medal success.
This is an opportunity to hear first-hand how you can create the belief through the power of your mind that you are an Olympic Champion before you even step foot in the Olympic Village.
This is my calling… through everything I have done with AP Race so far, this is what I have been most excited by because I know the impact that we can have on every single swimmer, coach and parent that attends this clinic. I am ready… are you?
