Mental Skills Training


Football is football and talent is talent. But the mindset of your team makes all the difference.

Robert Griffin III


Mental skills training involves the development and use of various methods to produce desired outcomes and consistent optimal performances. The application of mental skills training is individualized to fit the needs of the intended athlete or team.   The use mental skills training can literally take an athlete or a team from good to great!

Did you know that research on elite athlete has shown the difference between more successful and less successful athletes includes:

  • Better concentration
  • Greater confidence
  • Ability to focus on the task
  • Better arousal, anxiety and attentional control strategies
  • Generate more positive thoughts and imagery
  • More determination and commitment

(Maynerd & Gould, 2009; Hardy, Jones & Gould, 1996)


Did you also know that all of these factors can be developed and enhanced with mental skills training?


Mental skills training benefits anyone interested in improving their performance, whether in sport or in business.   You don’t have to be an athlete to use mental skills.   Mental skills training is also used in business, military and in personal coaching. The benefits are far reaching, teaching you the skills to perform optimally in all areas of your life. Some of the ways mental skills training help include:

  • Building confidence
  • Effective goal setting strategies
  • Managing distractions
  • Arousal control
  • Anxiety control
  • Stress management
  • Leadership development
  • Imagery/visualization
  • Negative thought stopping
  • Transitioning out of sport
  • Bouncing back from a failure
