How Classes Are Conducted

On-on-one classes are conducted two ways:

1) via a Skype call (no video) 
2) via a Zoom meeting (no video) 

 

Homework is required. The athlete prepares for a masterclass by watching videos, reading selected pages from WINNING STATE, and answering three to five mental toughness training questions previous to each class.

For Parents

Mental Toughness Coaching:

Please make sure your athlete's participation is completely voluntary. Parents are asked to not be in the room with the athlete, peering over their shoulder during classes. Classes are one-on-one.

 

"Thanks in advance." ~ Steve​​PP
