Mental Performance Coaching

Winning the Mental Game

Your child has practiced for hours upon hours, but are they ready for when the pressure mounts? When the intensity increases? With IMG Academy+, the online extension of IMG Academy, your child can get access to the same mental performance tools utilized by some of the world’s top athletes. With multiple program types to fit your needs and schedule, IMG Academy+ provides a foundation for success in sport and life.

“The sessions with my son have helped him to become more confident and give him a plan to mitigate negative thoughts and prepare him mentally for each game. Also the mental coach Brianna has been wonderful. She is a great listener and uses probing questions to get a deeper understanding of what my child is thinking and feeling in a given scenario. She also provides a safe and comfortable environment for him to share any vulnerabilities he has with her."

"My son is working with Ms. Emily W for his Mental Performance and Ms. Hannah Cooper with Nutrition. Both have been great to work with and both know their subjects very well.
