PROVIDING ATHLETES WITH TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES TO OVERCOME MENTAL BARRIERS
AND TAKE THEIR GAME TO THE NEXT LEVEL
ATHLETE MENTAL PERFORMANCE COACHING
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.
My name is Itzik Rapaport and I am the Mental Coach Pro. Over my years of playing at the highest competitive levels available to me, I have seen and been challenged with every possible obstacle a player can face. My journey as a Division 1 athlete consists of playing Soccer at the University of New Mexico. As a nationally recognized scholarship recruited player I started every game my freshman year as we made the NCAA National Tournament. What was a very promising situation for me, quickly turned and I found myself outside the lineup, forced to deal with what seemed at the time as the worst possible thing that can happen.
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.
