Team Mental Skills Training

Mental Toughness Training for Teams

Learn Mental Toughness Strategies for Teams


The mental game is always a challenge for athletes. For some players, it might be their biggest hurdle to overcome.

Our goal is to unlock a team’s potential by improving the mental toughness of each player and the team as a whole. Each player will experience the mental toughness strategies universally used by pro-athletes of all sports for the benefit of the individual and the team.

This program is ideal for coaches and teams looking to improve their athletes’ mental strength and performance potential.

From practice to game-time — and even in life — mental skills training builds lifelong confidence and toughness in players.

We’ll teach the steps and strategies to build pro-level mental toughness.

We’ll share a customized mental game plan based on the team of individuals considering sport, skill level, and needs.

Take your game to new levels.

  1. Intake Assessment
    Thrive uses a specific, and proprietary assessment tool, (The 9 Mental Skills of Successful Athletes) to help identify what mental game barriers are hurting your athlete’s performance as well as to correctly identify their mental strengths.
  2. Team-specific Mental Game Plan
    We will create a personalized game plan based on your specific challenges and goals as a program. The plan we create will act as a roadmap for your mental training sessions.
  3. Weekly Mental Coaching Sessions
    In person, phone, or by Skype. Each session is designed to teach you how to apply functional mental strategies for practice and games. You will work directly with Derrek and learn how to improve your team’s mental toughness for both practices and competitions.
  4. Unlimited Email Correspondence
    You are welcome to email/text Derrek with any and all questions you have during the course of your mental training program.
  5. Custom Modules: Exercises 
    After each session, you will receive exercises specific to the topic discussed that day. You will be expected to apply these strategies between our sessions in order to further the team’s growth.

Repeated Optimal Performance leads to excellence.
