INSTRUCTION:

MENTAL TRAINING & HITTING CLINIC 3:30 ? 6:30 p.m.
For 7th ? 12th grade athletes
Cost: $80 before Oct 15th, $95 after Oct 15th
INSTRUCTION:
This clinic will teach mental training techniques to improve confidence and performance. We will use mental training activities that include creating a vision, understanding focus, improving confidence, relaxation with routines to develop consistency, use of visualization to train your subconscious mind, and ways to improve self-talk and dealing with anxiousness or doubt and fear. These techniques will be applied to developing a mental approach and a hitting routine to help the athlete become more relaxed, focused, and confident when performing. These strategies can also be applied to everyday life and are the same techniques that professional, Olympic, and college athletes use to succeed at high levels.

Athlete Testimony

I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given me. My current swing mechanics are not even comparable to where they were before I started working with you. When I get compliments on my swing, I am quick to let them know that you are my hitting coach. In addition to the mechanical training we have done, the mental training has helped me achieve success of all aspects in the game. Everything in my game is much more positive and my confidence gets better every day. I look forward to continuing our training and can't wait to see how far it takes me. Thank you so much.
