Visualization in sports psychology


I am an athlete who appears to have aphantasia, struggling with conventional wisdom to employ visualization techniques as a rehearsal/practice method.

Worse, since I don’t see images in my mind, I’m struggling even more to find resources on how athletes like me take advantage of visualization-like techniques as a practice method. I am making it up as I go along and I can’t tell whether any of it is truly helping.

Is _nobody_ writing about how people with aphantasia–or merely not-very-vivid visualization abilities–do effective mental rehearsal for their sport?!
