Since mental skills and preparation are important in developing sport level, one of the significant problems facing athletes is their need for a mental preparation. Skill or physical abilities only are not enough in order to achieve sport success and achievement. Rather, the need for mental strength, ability to concentrate and how to face psychological pressures during training situation and sport competitions are more important. Achieving ideal skill performance requires that a player possesses comprehensive skill, physical and psychological abilities to achieve the best possible skill performance. Therefore, the researcher found that using mental training course accompanying a proposed training course on mental toughness for sitting volleyball players helps raise their self-confidence and increase their concentration despite psychological pressures they experience. Thus, the study aimed to prepare a mental and physical training course that corresponds with the sample of the study and determine its effect on mental toughness of the sample of the study. Both researchers used some means to achieve goals of the study. They concluded that mental training helps enhance mental toughness for sitting volleyball players. The study also concluded that the best way to represent mental training to sitting volleyball players is at the beginning and at the end of the main section of the training unit with consideration of the percentage of time attributed from the unit time.
