My Students

This student population are the athletes of the high school baseball program. They have been regularly showing up at 6:00am since October for workouts in preparation for their spring season. This special group of athletes strive to make themselves better overall athletes and young men.

The leadership with this team has proven day in and day out that they are committed to being a force for this upcoming season.

From top to bottom, players of all grade levels have stepped up and shown a desire to set a culture and tone within the baseball program.

My Project

The game of baseball has so much to do with the mental approach as the foundational base for every player. Having a professional in the area of mental preparation will assist with a players overall development as not only an athlete but a young man. During this time, we hope to have players understand the importance of team work and how team building develops leadership. We aspire to establish a championship culture that is predicated on a strong work ethic, commitment, motivation, focus, and self-awareness.

Our baseball program is focused on the development of the whole player through in depth mental imagery and mindfulness training.

With this approach, habits of excellence and creating routines will lead to a successful outcome. Baseball is a game of failure and through mental preparation, we learn from our failures in order to achieve success.
