Former Major Leaguer/Sports Psychologist Bob Tewksbury to Speak at Monday's Community Meeting
Monday evening’s community meeting will be the first of the new year, and New Hampton School is pleased to welcome sports psychologist and former Major League pitcher Bob Tewksbury to the stage. Formal dress is required for all students, and the program will commence at 6:30 pm after a cafeteria-style meal in the dining hall. Day students can be picked up at 7:30 pm. The event is open to all parents and community members.
Bob Tewksbury brings a unique combination of professional playing experience and educational knowledge into the area of sport psychology and mental performance. He overcame two arm surgeries, being released by the Cubs and several demotions to the minor leagues to compile a successful major league career. Bob pitched 13 years in the Major Leagues, winning 110 games. He was an All-Star (1992).
After retiring from MLB in 1999, he returned to college and completed his bachelor of science degree in physical education from St. Leo University (2000) and later went on to earn a master of education degree in sport psychology and counseling from Boston University (2004). He is an Adjunct Professor of Sport Psychology & Exercise at NHTI in Concord and is presently the Sport Psychology Coach for the Boston Red Sox, a position he has held since 2004.
Bob's mission is to help athletes of all ages and levels perform to the best of their ability by improving their mental game. Drawing on his 25 years of experience as a player and a consultant, he determines what performance obstacles are preventing athletes from playing their best and works with them to develop a plan designed to successfully overcome those obstacles.
