Summer 2018 Mental Conditioning Series


Setting Goals and Getting the Most Out of Your Training

Tuesday 6/26 at 6pm

We all start summer training programs with high goals and the desire for large improvements, but what we want can often blind us to the process of getting there. The purpose of this session is to expose athletes to known goal setting techniques and progress tracking strategies to cultivate motivation through the summer. Athletes will learn how to set challenging goals, how to plan specific actions to achieve them, and how to hold themselves accountable and focused for each training session.


2) Mental Training & Conditioning for Athletes (7 week program, drop in for $45/ session or whole program for $280). Tuesday evenings, 6-6:45pm

June 26th-FREE BUILT IN Session- #1: Regulating Anxiety and Stress for Peak Performance

This session will teach athletes how stress and anxiety can help and hurt performances and teach specific strategies to help regulate stress and anxiety pre and during competition. Specifically, athletes will leave with an understanding of how to control their breathing and to re-set themselves. 

July 3rd-Session #2: Understanding and Controlling Emotions

Who are you at your best? Who are you at your worst? How do you feel in either situation? Emotions are strong experiences that can help us get to a confident state when we understand them and how we generally feel. This session will provide participants with greater awareness of themselves and will map their emotions to help athletes get to a better state for competition.

July 17th-Session #3: Using Mindfulness to Combat Stress and Maintain Focus

Mindfulness is one of the hottest topics in psychology today and is used by athletes in the Olympics, NFL, NBA, MLB, and the NHL. What is mindfulness and how can it help me be a better athlete? This session will explore mindfulness and expose participants to how to do mindfulness practices to help focus and reduce stressors.

July 24th-Session #4: Focus and Concentration Strategies

The ability to focus during an activity is vital to peak performance. While athletes have the ability to focus, how can we remain focused despite fatigue or when we have several things vying for our attention? This session will teach participants how attention works, will utilize several activities to challenge participants’ attention, and will provide strategies for athletes to cultivate their attention for peak performance.

July 31st- Session #5: Confidence Through Self Talk

We speak to ourselves at an average of 300-1,000 words a minute- that’s a lot of dialogue that can either build up our confidence or tear our confidence apart. Self-talk is the act of thinking about what is happening to us and how we can respond, not react so that we take purposeful action to succeed. This session will teach athletes that thoughts matter and will provide athletes with scenarios and best practices of how to develop effective self-talk to build confidence.

August 7th- Session #6: Visualization and Mental Preparation

One of the most used mental strategies by top athletes is visualization or imagery- seeing yourself performing and preparing accordingly. This session will walk participants through what visualization is, how to do it, and help athletes develop imagery scripts for their own personal use.

August 14th- Session #7: Developing Routines

High performing athletes have go to behaviors and strategies that help prepare them for games and specific plays and actions. These behaviors and strategies are known as routines. This session will help athletes incorporate various mental skills into purposeful steps to help athletes perform consistently over the course of a season. Athletes will walk away with “go to” action steps to help them reset themselves in stressful situations and to adequately prepare their minds and bodies for high performance.
