Speaking Event

From a single session to a series of 2-3 mental workouts, sports mindset coaching is for teens in Chicago and young adults everywhere who feel the pressure of high-performance athletics.

These sessions will help you to perform the way you want.

Your power lies in connecting performance to perspective.

  • Negative thoughts
  • Fear of Failure
  • Fear of Injury
  • External Frustrations
  • Self-doubt
  • Anxiety
  • Hesitation
  • Academics
  • Feeling off- balance

What do you need?

Your peak performance isn’t about what’s worked for anyone else, and when we work together to transform your potential from the inside out, the focus is on you.

Do you need your parents to support you in a different way, or to understand what your coach is asking of you without feeling like you’re starting a fight? Are you ready to rebel against the culture of perfection so tied to sport performance? Are you ready to step into your potential and remember why you love your sport?

From reframing negative thoughts to getting your head in the game, you don’t need to be told what you need. You already know. We’re here to help you find the tools to achieve it.

What’s stopping you from getting it?

Ever heard that saying about changing what you can and accepting what you can’t? Sports mindset coaching is kinda like that, but we’re not interested in telling you what you can’t control. That’s up to you to determine and we want to make sure you can do so with the support and strength that comes with advocating for yourself at home, in your community, and in your training.

You are the leader of your life and your potential. Sports mindset coaching is designed to support you in developing effective leadership skills to strengthen what you can and conserve energy where you can’t.

Here's How We Can Help

Effective communication to help you excel

There’s nothing wrong with struggling with complicated mental gymnastics or not knowing how to talk about the pressures you’re facing.

Master the fear of failure that freezes you up

Your mindset is a strength you can harness through mindful support.

Body language matters

For out-of-state clients, we’re willing and able to use video footage to get a real-time understanding of what happens in the moment when you need support.

Overcome internal and external demands for perfection

Elite athlete culture demands perfection and makes no room for much else. Whether your entire team is counting on you, or you’re counting on yourself, the pressure is overwhelming to get it right every time—whatever the cost.

Even success isn’t gonna stop you from grappling with the perfectionism woven into the athletic mentality. But that mentality isn’t helping you succeed.

Sports mindset coaching will work with you on figuring out where these thoughts come from and how you can use them to fuel your success so they don’t freeze you up when you’re in action.

Learn to find balance

Being an athlete takes up a lot of your time and energy. Even when you’re not training, you’re planning, evaluating, preparing, or even just decompressing to rest your mind and body. It feels like there aren’t enough hours to give school the same emphasis you give sports. It can seem like success in one area equals stress in the other.

But you are more than your identity as an athlete, and mindset coaching will help you to bring your whole self into the moment.

Balance as an academic and an athlete means reaching for the stars without letting go of whatever grounds you and holding fast to the skills and tools that keep you in check. In sports mindset coaching, you’ll work toward finding balance between what you want and need and will set goals to help you find solid footing in all parts of your identity. The tools you learn in sports mindset coaching can help you achieve your ambitions without adding extra hours to your day.

With balance comes clarity, and this opportunity to reflect on who YOU are amid the expectations you shoulder in life might be exactly what you need. Sports Mindset coaching will allow you to take a breath and refocus on the passion that fuels your game so you show up ready to give it your all.

Intensity is your life…
