Unlock the MINDSET that gets you to optimal performance, consistently.
There are only 3 things any athlete can train. Physical, Technical, and Mental. You spend hours running sprints and lifting weights to ensure you are game fit. You drive distances and join the best clubs to make sure you are technically and tactically sound. All this just to show up game time and hope it all works out. It does not have to be this way. All coaches do the mental game lip service saying things like “we have to be mentally tough, focus, get zeroed in.” However these concepts must be trained to be properly developed. Just like any other muscle and skill, the Mental Game can be strengthened and learned with exercises and techniques.
These concepts are not only critical for on field performance, but rather every aspect of life. The work we do with our clients not only prepares them to be their optimal best as athletes, but also academically, within their family setting, socially, in relationships, and will prepare them for whatever challenges and opportunities their future will bring about.
My passion to help young athletes was cultivated from my inability to help myself as a youth player trying to get to the next level. I have since then studied athletes performance mental training and mastered how to deliver the mental skills necessary for consistent peak performances . I have worked with HS players, youth national players, and professional athletes to overcome many common barriers faced by athletes. The key factor in getting what you want to get out of your sport, and your performance, lies entirely in your Mindset, Mental Preparation, and Mental Skillset.

Mental Awareness is so important in preparing for the college game. It is at least as critical to performance as any other part of the players game. Itzik has been working with our college guys for the past 3 years and has done a great job breaking down players’ barriers and providing them with tools so that they can play with confidence, consistently.
