In  recent  years,  the  importance  of  psychological  skills  training  (PST)  has  been  recognized,  and  the number  of  athletes  using  psychological  training  strategies  has  increased. The  research  and  applied aspects of sports psychology in recent years has generated a sense of realization among shooters also that they should work on their psychological credentials to improve their performance at national and international levels. Physical skills, physical fitness and psychological skills are the building blocks of a complete athlete who produces outstanding sports performances. At the top level of the sport, where many athletes have equal physical ability, the difference between a great and a good performance or between winning and losing is often related to mental abilities, rather than physical. Indeed, at any level of competition the psychological component can become a critical factor of success. There are many examples where a less (physically) skilled player has often succeeded over his or her more skilled opponents due to being better mentally prepared or ‘psyched up’ for the game. Moreover, in today’s professional  and  semi-professional  sports,  the  thin  line  between  winning  and  losing  is  becoming progressively  thinner. This  increasing  performance  density  creates  massive  pressure. Thus,  it  is  not surprising  that  in  recent  years,  the  importance  of  psychological  skills  training  (PST)  has  been recognized, and the number of athletes using psychological training strategies has increased.
