Mental Agility Training is just as important to an athlete, as Sport Specific Training.
Peripheral World – Social media and the internet are exposing athletes to a world of judgement, that didn’t exist a decade ago. Any reduction in form, (physical or mental) can quickly lead to an erosion of confidence and become a bottleneck to productivity.
Professional teams understand the importance of proactive psychology practices, such as visualization. However, they lack the ability to address more challenging psychological hurdles that impact athletes every day.
Every professional sideline has dedicated fitness professionals and doctors to react to physical injuries. Every professional team has fitness professionals and doctors to address proactive (Prehab) practices to help avoid those injuries. Very few teams offer Mental Prehab.
Unfortunately, there is still a stigma associated with Sport Psychology that should no longer exist. We have determined that a focused effort and series of campaigns can not only change that stigma, but create a demand for Mental Agility training and coaching.

We are focused on removing the stigma associated with performance psychology, so that athletes, coaches and club officials will embrace Mental Agility Training, as they do sport-specific training.
