Coaches will move to a whole new level of performance with the simple and proven techniques.

In this book, Brian Risk introduces eighteen mental skills and presents a program for introducing the mental skills into a training program for any sport / performance. The program calls for introducing one mental skill at the start of each week. This mental skill is then practiced for the entire week. For programs that do not have eighteen weeks in their season, the book presents two subsets of eight mental skills one for team sports and one for individual sports. By starting with one of these subsets, these mental skills become the foundation for future seasons wherein new mental skills are introduced into and added to the routine already established. Thus, over the course of a few seasons or a year, an athlete / performer can be exposed to the complete set of mental skills.
