WHY CHOOSE ME ?
So your next questions are this all looks good so how are you different than all the
other stuff out there and why should we use you.
My answer is that you are getting this communication directly from a coach who has
been on the front lines. I have seen literally a wider variation of athlete than your
typical sports psychologist and know how to deal with all the different personalities.
I am also a former engineering executive so we take a logical and step-by-step
approach in building your players mental toolbox. One of my roles as a college
coach is to develop a mental toughness component for the players and help them
elevate their mental game.
My plans help the player truly figure out why they play the game. We then develop
a clear and concise action plan with many mental exercises and cognitive
improvement strategies. These exercises are specific to hockey and are time tested
with many of my past students and players with the teams and organizations with
whom I have been associated.
Here is what the course will consist of and what you can count
on to receive to help yourself develop.
1 written communication per week from Me providing
information to help you take your mental game to the next level.
1 audio communication per month reviewing the material that
was sent and exposing you to some of the newest methods of

WHAT IS REQUIRED OF ME ?
How much is your mental game worth to you? As you get older the
mental game will become a more critical part of your game. It is often
said that most sports are 90% mental. There are a lot of pressures and
expectations on athletes today. When an athlete is young and involved in
today’s culture everyone gets a trophy at a young age. As they get older
the competition gets more intense and they are doing everything to
prepare except learn how to find that extra gear when you need to. If
you sit with a sports psychologist it is going to cost you a lot of money
and it is for a short visit. I am a coach for a reason and that reason is to
help you develop as an athlete and a person. I will do my part to bring
out the best in you. What I expect from you in return is to spend about 1
hour a week on working on your mental game. To equate this let’s look
at the following example: In 2008-2009 the average save percentage of a
starting goalie in the NHL was .908. The save percentage of the top ten
goalies was .918 that amounted to about 14 less goals over the course of
the season. The average salary of the starters was $2.2 million. The
average salary of the top ten was $6.6 million. The difference between
good and great is the way that you mentally approach the game. Are you
ready to invest time into yourself and your game? Can you put that time
aside to elevate your game and break through to new levels? If you can
then great! We look forward to taking the journey with you. If not then
we wish you the best in your career.
