Mental Skills Training
Individual Mental Skills Training
Every athlete has unique needs. Mindset Development believes that it is important to work on each individual game by creating a customized mental skills training program. Mindset Development coaches utilize a unique assessment strategy to learn about the athlete and then implement training.
Mindset Development is valuable for athletes of all ages and levels. Mindset Development is focused on 3 areas of assisting athletes: restoring mental skills training, enhancing mental skills, and maintaining the mental edge.
ENHANCE: Athletes choose Mindset Development when they are looking to take their game to the next level. We give athletes a comprehensive set of tools to take control of his/her mental game. Go from good to great.
RESTORE: Feeling off your game? Can’t get into the “zone?” As athletes, we all face challenges whether it is injury, pressure, relationships with coaches or teammates. Mindset Development works with athletes and teams to discover what the roadblock to optimal performance is. Mindset Development directors work to identify specific areas that need improvement and train athletes in skills that assist them in overcoming barriers and reaching desired performance levels/outcome/desired level of performance.
MAINTAIN: We all know that consistency in performance is the key to success and long-lived careers. We work with athletes to make peak performance easier to recreate on a consistent basis.
