IYCA – Mental Toughness Course
Discover the Secrets That Will Get Your Athletes to Perform Under Pressure, Show Up Big on Game Day, & Handle Pressure Like a Champ…
Develop mental toughness in all of your athletes with this simple system used by world-champion athletes to help them perform their best when everyone else crumbles under the pressure.
Have you ever had that athlete who seems to possess all the skills and talent in the world but just can’t seem to show up on game day?
For some reason, all the work and preparation you do in practice, in the weight room, and with your conditioning goes out the window when it comes time to perform.
If you work with athletes, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
On the other hand, there always seems to be that one athlete who is calm under pressure and shows up time and time again when the game is on the line.
Before now, I always thought you either had it or you didn’t.
Can you train mental toughness?
I didn’t think so until I discovered Dr. Haley Perlus and the work that she was doing with National, World, and Olympic Champions.
She has unlocked the secrets to helping athletes overcome their mental roadblocks and is allowing them to perform at their peak when it truly matters—game day!
If you coach athletes, either for their sport or in performance, you know how agonizing it is to watch an athlete fall apart during game time. You sit on the sidelines or in the stands feeling powerless.
You’ve prepped the athlete through practice, they’ve spent hours in the weight room developing strength and power, and you’ve worked for weeks developing their conditioning so they can outwork anyone.
But you missed one critical aspect of their training.
Developing their mental toughness!
But it’s not your fault. You’ve gone to school, taken certifications, and attended seminars on developing athletes, but you’ve never had the opportunity to learn how to impact an athlete’s mind.
To some coaches, building mental toughness includes things like depriving an athlete of water during practice or yelling and screaming at them to see if they crack.
It’s the “old school coach” approach to training, and since you’re reading this, I’m going to assume you know there is a better way. In fact, that’s a fundamental principle on which the International Youth Conditioning Association was founded: knowing there is a better way to develop young athletes than outdated and ineffective tough-guy coaching strategies.
How do you create champion minds the same way you do bodies?
With proper training!
There are two key factors that come into play when teaching an athlete to perform at their best when it matters most: Anxiety & Pressure.
With the right approach, you can teach athletes to harness the power of anxiety and pressure instead of letting these emotions overwhelm and negatively impact performance.
In fact, there are 4 key strategies that Dr. Perlus uses with all her athletes to help them be their best no what is going on around them:
- Want success more than you fear anything else
- Acknowledge each step in the process
- Commit to excellence, not perfection
- Control the controllables
This is the foundation of peak performance and mental toughness.
Dr. Perlus’s approach to mental toughness training doesn’t require a degree in psychology or an in-depth knowledge of how the brain works. Any coach can use her simple principles and methods to develop athletes who have the ability to shine during high-pressure situations.
Every athlete wants to be THE hero, and they have the potential.
But you have to unlock it!
Every athlete dreams of being able to hit the big shot when the game is on the line, crush a walk-off homer during the championship, or make the game-saving play when all eyes are on them.
If you’re anything like me (and I guarantee that your athletes are), you laid awake at night and spent countless hours in the driveway as a kid visualizing and playing out those situations.
It’s easy when you’re by yourself or with friends playing out those scenarios. You can hear the imaginary crowd roaring and your teammates cheering you on. But when it all becomes a reality, are your athletes prepared to step up and perform?
When you implement the IYCA Mental Toughness Course methods with your athletes, they’ll be ready!
You’ll have the secret behind coaches like Phil Jackson, John Wooden, and many others who always seem to get athletes to perform their best when it matters most.
Your competition won’t be able to keep up.
And if you only train athletes for performance as a strength coach, if you can teach your athletes how to perform under pressure, not only will you be a hero to them, but you will also have a unique skill that sports coaches will notice immediately when all of your athletes are producing game-winning shots, staying cool under pressure, and showing up big time on game day.
If you’re looking for a way to get into more high school or big time programs, this course will give you a huge edge over your competition.
These are skills that your athletes will be able to use long into their futures when they are competing for coveted jobs and trying to find success in their career. You’re not just giving them to tools to perform in the big game; you’re preparing them to do well in life!
This skill doesn’t take years to develop as do athleticism and athletic development, though—you can get immediate results with your athletes. In fact, many of Dr. Perlus’s clients will tell you that a few minutes with her going over these techniques will impact your performance in a big way.
