Every experience begins with a Free Consultation to discuss the Mind’s Eye program and approach. The athlete, along with their parents, meets with Dr. Pete to explore how Mind’s Eye may be able to help them reach their goals and obtain information that will help them determine if it’s a good fit for them. * FaceTime and video conferencing available safely from home.
Athletes are formally assessed with a variety of measures including the Troutwine Athlete Profile (TAP) and the Mental Mechanics Assessment. The purpose of the assessment is to highlight strengths for each athlete that are not typically measured (intangibles), as well to identify obstacles to peak performance. These insights are used to establish targeted goals and a custom plan to achieve them.
Athletes meet with Dr. Pete for a 90-minute feedback session where the results of the assessment are discussed and a personalized Performance Plan is presented. The Performance Plan becomes the athlete’s manual for developing the mental game that continues to be a valued resource for years.
Mind’s Eye athletes meet with Dr. Pete for 1 on 1 Mental Skills Training to implement their Performance Plan, develop the 5 Mental Mechanics and gain the competitive edge they’re seeking.
Mind’s Eye athletes also receive phone, email and text support indefinitely. Once a Mind’s Eye athlete, always a Mind’s Eye athlete!
Serious athletes know that they will not be successful without a commitment to their physical and technical training. By adding an equally disciplined and committed approach to the mental game, the Mind’s Eye athlete will:
The TAP has been used by coaches and teams in the NFL, NBA, and MLB for years. It is also used by major colleges to help make decisions related to scholarship offers. It was Dr. Troutwine who recommended the Indianapolis Colts draft Peyton Manning over Ryan Leaf with #1 overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft.
According to Dr. Troutwine, “the TAP measures the athletic intangibles of a player. Most coaches immediately identify with the word “intangibles”. The TAP can tell a coach about the player’s competitiveness, mental toughness, composure under pressure, and ability to adjust. This information is vital for recruiting and developing players.”
Bill Belichick, Head Coach of the New England Patriots – “I’ve been familiar with this for over 10 years… I’m telling you this from experience this gives you tremendous insight into the player, yourself, and your program.”
Competing is challenging enough when it’s against an opponent, or the clock. Yet many athletes create additional, self-imposed obstacles that can interfere with performance and rob them of the natural pleasure competing should bring. Developing strong Mental Mechanics can help athletes conquer the obstacles that can get in their way. Examples of obstacles Mind’s Eye Sports Performance helps athletes overcome include:
Perfectionism, psyching out, blocks, lapses in concentration, poor focus
Anger, fear, anxiety, frustration, apathy
Hesitancy, trying too hard, avoidance, not taking chances, quitting
“I can’t do this.” “I’m not good enough.” “I’ll embarrass myself.” “I’ll let people down.”
