About Distance Diploma in Sports and Exercise Psychology

India has traditionally been a society that has emphasised physical activity, exercise, and many sports to promote mental and physical well-being and recreation. The age-old practices of yoga and pranayama indicate intricate knowledge about the body-mind relationship that has been developed by ancestors. Until now, this knowledge did not find a way into modern India, though it became a well-established science in the western developed world.

Due to increased sports participation, competitions, and increased awareness about the benefits of such participation, allied sports sciences like sports management, sports physiotherapy, sports exercise psychology, etc. have begun developing in India.

The Distance Diploma in Sports and Exercise Psychology (DDSEP) provides aspirants with an opportunity to understand and control the state of the human mind in the sports field. This course is a good breakthrough for those involved in sports, be they athletes, parents, coaches, gym trainers, fitness trainers, etc., or those wanting to become sport and exercise psychologists.

Course Aim

The Distance Diploma in Sports and Exercise Psychology (DDSEP) aims to provide students with profound and up-to-date knowledge, theory, and practical techniques practiced in the field of sports and exercise psychology.
