Mindfulness Workshop for Athletes

3-hour mental training for athletes ages 14-20

With up to 90% of the game being mental, and no instruction given on mental training, most athletes are not performing at their peak.


This program is for your athlete if:

  • They struggle with athletic performance
  • They experience anxiety, nervousness, or worry before or during athletic events
  • They would like to gain confidence, enjoy their sport more, and play at their peak


In this workshop your athlete will learn to:

  • Manage their anxiety related to their athletic performance with concrete strategies to use before and during games/events
  • Get in the zone so that they perform at their peak
  • Increase focus, attention, and awareness while playing their sport
  • Improve confidence and enjoy playing their sport more
