Join us July 17th-19th for a 3-day summer camp designed to help athletes focus on the mental side of their game. Athletes will have the opportunity to build confidence, develop resilience and learn mental coping skills for the demands of their sport.
Sports are a big part of many teens lives. It’s an environment where they can develop their skills, connect with others, find purpose, and so much more! However, as athletes get older and the level of competition grows, so too do the pressures, busy schedules and mental demands. Without time spent learning how to cope with these demands in a healthy way, athletes are more susceptible to lower levels of confidence and joy and increased experiences of high pressure, perfectionism, frustration, and worry.
That’s where this camp comes in! Join us this July for a three day mental performance clinic for high school athletes of all sports. Facilitated by former collegiate athlete and therapist Eric Stevenson, LPC, this clinic will provide athletes with skills and tools to focus on their mental health and strengthen their performance both on and off the court/field. Participants will learn how to build on their personal strengths, increase their understanding of their mental game, and develop practical plan to keep them performing their best.
🥎 Identify strategies for counteracting nerves, self-criticism and fear of failure before games or practice.
🏀 Improve confidence and self-esteem both on and off the field or court.
