Course Outline

Lesson 1

 What is Real Mental Toughness?

Real mental toughness is about more than just getting “fired up” to play the game. While the energy and excitement needs to be there, real mental toughness is about focusing on the important things in order to achieve your goals.

Review the practical definition of mental toughness and learn how to focus on what really matters before stepping onto the field.

Lesson 2

Excellence vs. Perfection

Your dream is to be perfect. In reality, mistakes happen!

In the words of Mia Hamm, “Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.” When viewed in the right light, mistakes can be the best learning experience out there! Mental Mastery will teach you how to eliminate perfection from your goals and embrace mistakes as a way to learn and improve.

Lesson 3

Roadmap: Where Are You Going, And Why?

You’ve set some pretty great goals, and plan on working hard to achieve them. The question you have to ask yourself is, “Why do I want to do this?”

Your “why” will either make or break your path towards your dreams. Without a good reason to fight, you might give up the moment things get tough. Follow these tips on how to identify your “why” and build a roadmap that is guaranteed to lead you to victory!

Lesson 4

Past, Present, Futuristic Thinking

Your mental energy is a precious thing. It overrides all other functions in your body. Regardless of how fit and technically skilled you are, if you’re not mentally focused and prepared to play your best, you will struggle.

Being present and “in the moment” may seem easy, but staying there can be tricky! We’ll guide you through several tricks to help you learn from your past, stay in the present, and worry less about the future.

Lesson 5

The Magic Combination

As the start of a big soccer game or other challenging situation draws nearer, two things happen. The physical toughness you’ve built in preparation for this event is finally being put to use. However, at the same time, your adrenaline begins to pump and you lose that sense of mental calm you need to truly focus.

Mental Mastery helps you work out your very own “magic combination” of mental calmness and physical readiness to make your next big challenge feel easy!

Lesson 6

Focus – “Get Out Of Your Head!” (And Back On The Field)

Did you know that there are four stages to good focus? What about that there is a very clear difference between internal and external focus?

Focus is a word that gets used a lot in soccer. We all know that poor focus will leave you feeling mentally overwhelmed and not able to focus appropriately. By learning these four important stages, you’ll be able to achieve good, clear focus from the inside, out. This will help you play your best and reach your full potential, even during your most intense moments!

Lesson 7

Imagery: The Skill That Separates “Good” From “Great”

Imagery is not a magical power that automatically makes anything you imagine, come true. Rather, it is a powerful tool that is used by some of the greatest athletes to help give them that extra push they need to reach their goals.

It’s a scientifically proven fact that repeatedly engaging our brains with an abundance of sensory detail can help us perform better in real life. Mental Mastery can coach you through this process and help turn imagery into the most powerful mental tool you have!

Lesson 8

Confidence = Calm & Carefree

Calm and carefree are the essence of confidence. This lesson dives into controlling controllables, relaxation, breathing, and how to be carefree – the art of caring less – temporarily.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is My Athlete Old Enough For This Course?

    Yes! This course is specifically geared towards athletes 13-18 years old!

  • Why Mental Mastery?

    You wouldn’t wait for a injury to occur before you start to train your body for competition, so why wait for lack of confidence or “mental blocks” show up before you start training your brain?

    Be proactive in your training – prepare now for the adversity that accompanies high-level competition. Get through it faster, stronger, and more effectively then your competition.

  • What Are The Most Common Reasons For Seeking Mental Training?

    • Nervousness and anxiety
    • Lack of confidence
    • Performance plateau
    • Preparing for collegiate athletics
    • Lack of emotional control
    • Mentally recover and return to sport following injury

  • What can my athlete expect to get out of Mental Mastery Program?

    Athletes can expect to learn new information, complete “homework” (working through lessons, practice skills, reflecting on experiences) and create a shift in the way they train.

    Everything we teach is designed to increase self-awareness, enhance confidence and improve every aspect of your game. After all, your brain is the control center of your body. When you train your brain to work and communicate more effectively, your body works better too!

  • Who are good candidates for Mental Mastery?

    Our best students fit a very simple profile – they are motivated and committed to improving their performance.

    While it is common for there to be initial resistance for youth athletes who have never engaged in mental training, Mental Mastery has been designed for athletes to work in the privacy of their own home working on content that’s proven to improve focus, confidence, motivation and overall performance.

    We know you will like what we’ve got to offer.

  • Wondering If You're 'That' Parent?

    We hear that a lot. Parents wonder if getting your young athletes to engage in mental training is “over the top” and makes them an “extreme” parent.

    Parents who typically enroll their athletes:

    • Care deeply about their children learning and growing from their sport experience.
    • Value mental training as “life skills” training.
    • Often have had similar types of training in their own careers.
    • Want to help their children learn to proactively solve problems and become more self-reliant.
    • Know that how you perform mentally dictates how you perform physically.
