Mental Training for Athletes
Athletes of all levels and sports are already aware of the mental game — actively or casually. For these same athletes, what’s often lacking is the understanding of how much their mental toughness affects their performance, as well as how to address and improve it.
In this program, our goal is to take your mental game to the next level. You’ll learn the mental training techniques and strategies used by college and pro-athletes across a variety of sports. Regardless of age or skill-level, our training is for anyone who is looking for opportunities to improve their mental toughness — be it for recreational, personal, or elite performance goals.
Learn how top athletes approach high pressure moments, and how to apply their processes to your game.
Master visualization strategies, how to maximize your strengths, and minimize anxiety.
Receive a customize mental game plan based on your sport, skill-level, and individual needs.

What clients have to say about training with Thrive.
In Their Words
“Thrive: Excellence is Sport Performance was a worthwhile investment for the two programs we had Derrek work with in Marysville. The mental aspect in sport is a very important piece in the coaching spectrum and Derrek does a very nice job of teaching kids to flush what just happened and focus on what is important at the moment. The athletes and coaches came away with life-long learnings that could go well beyond their world of sport.”
Greg G. Erickson,Director of Athletics Marysville School District
"In our work with Derrek this past season, the boys found lots of benefit in BRIEF (pre practice routine) and WIN (real time goal setting training). These topics really seemed to resonate with the players and they were doable on a daily basis in the limited time we had to practice. The court and classroom sessions were both excellent. It is great for kids to hear from an expert in the area and we found it meant more at times coming from a fresh voice."
Bary Gould,Marysville Pillchuck Boys Basketball Coach
"Through Derrek’s mental toughness training, pre-practice preparation, match scripting, and visualizing routines I felt much more prepared and ready to start my season than ever before!"
Julianne Sitch,Former U-21 US International, University of Chicago Asst. Women’s Soccer Coach, retired Chicago Red Stars player
"We work daily to find opportunities and assets for the athletes we work with each spring and summer. Derrek represents yet another incredible opportunity for education and mastery in sport for our players."
