In episode 86 of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Director of Performance at the Toronto Blue Jays, Angus Mugford. Formerly of the IMG Academy in Florida, Angus is a psychologist by trade and is current President of the Association of Sports Psychology. It was great to chat with Angus who heads up a large performance department in Toronto but also has many other strings to his bow.

In this episode you will learn about –

  • Who is Angus Mugford (background, education and current role)
  • Hiring and firing
  • Internships
  • TRANSITION – athletes and coaches/scientists
  • Where psychology fits into the interdisciplinary team
  • Culture – mission and values

This episode is sponsored by Vald Performance, the team behind the NordBord and Train with PUSH, makers of the PUSH band.
