Join us for a 3-day summer camp designed to help athletes focus on the mental side of their game. Athletes will have the opportunity to strengthen their self-esteem and confidence, develop a healthy sense of balance and learn coping skills for the demands of their sport.
Student athletes have a lot on their plates, from sports practices and games to academic responsibilities to their social lives. Balancing all of these demands can be a challenge and create stress and anxiety that has a negative effect on performance. 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, anger, and worry.
That’s where this camp comes in! Join us this July for a three day mental performance clinic for athletes of all sports. Facilitated by Audrey Grunst, LCSW & Eric Stevenson, LPC this clinic will provide athletes with skills and tools to focus on their mental health and increase confidence and self-esteem both on and off the court/field.
Through this camp, athletes will:
🎯 Learn skills to cope with and effectively manage a demanding schedule.
🎯 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/court.
🎯 Develop healthy boundaries and a sense of balance that allows athletes to tap into joy in all areas of their lives.
