For sportspersons to excel in this  ever demanding world, talent alone is not enough. The athlete must have the full support of parents, coaches, administrators and other support staff if he or she is to attain victory in thhe most gruelling of circumstances.

The athlete too needs to take into account all of his or her needs, whether they be on a 
physical, mental and physiological level.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is ever mindful that it is possible to improve player welfare and thus performance. With such a belief in mind MSSA has appointed Mr. Barry Bridges as its online coach and wellness consultant.

While Barry had focussed extensively on the golf industry he also has experience in working as a coach for strength and conditioning (soccer), corporate wellness, sleep coaching, and esports performance.

Barry will offer remote support for Team Esports South Africa at the IESF World Championship and other future events. He will offer support in various sectors in wellness such as sleep, nutrition, exercise and overall cognitive performance for players.
