What We Do

Premier Sport Psychology’s services stretch along two pathways: individual services to encourage growth, wellness, and greater performance outcomes; and group services to build unity, cohesion, and team performance. Whether your next step is to increase alignment and buy-in, or win a national title, we can help.

WHO WE HELP

Premier Sport Psychology works with teams of all stripes, from youth teams to collegiate programs at the D1, D2, and D3 levels, to professional franchises and Olympic teams.

Despite their differences in size and scale, our mission with every organization remains the same: to optimize performance and strengthen culture. No goal is too small to support, no obstacle too large to overcome.

SERVICES FOR ATHLETES

INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS

Sport psychology sessions approach each athlete holistically, and target any variables that may be impacting performance, livelihood, or well-being. Our sessions can range from performance restoration, for those athletes dealing with performance impediments or burnout, to mental health counseling, to performance optimization, for athletes who want to find another gear, greater consistency, or advanced mental training in anticipation of a new season, transition, or big event.

ASSESSMENTS

Assessments allow athletes to gain self-awareness in areas that underpin performance, leadership, and successful communication. Our staff is trained in administering and evaluating assessment instruments directly related to personal, interpersonal, and performance dynamics—including athletic intelligence, responsiveness to adversity, emotional intelligence, behavior traits, and communication styles.

ONLINE TRAINING

Like any training, mindset optimization requires repetition and routine. Premier Sport Psychology offers a “Premier Mindset Academy,” which allows athletes to learn the techniques most directly related to performance enhancement in their own homes and at their own pace.

Athletes may use our programs independently, or as a supplement to their existing sessions with our sport psychologists and mental training consultants.

WHY SPORT PSYCHOLOGY?

HEALTHIER ATHLETES

What improves performance, improves well-being.

 

Your student athletes are likely concerned with their performances on the field, court, rink, or mat. We’ll help with that. Rest assured, however, that every step in this process will be building skills that foster overall wellness, build healthy relationships, and help manage the sport/life balance every student-athlete must contend with at some point in his/her career. Mental skills training begins with identifying what’s working in an athlete’s life, and what needs to be improved for the athlete to realize his/her full potential. Sport psychology reinforces this kind of awareness, and provides athletes with the skills to nourish what’s best in their lives, and address what’s holding them back.

ENHANCE RESILIENCE

Create consistency in your athletes, in good times and bad. Resilience, or grit, creates mental adaptability, allowing athletes to be more resistant to adversity and to rebound faster when setbacks inevitably hit.

 

Resilience has been shown to be a more reliable predictor of success than intelligence or talent, so building skills to make your athletes’ resilience more robust is vital to any program.

MORE COACHABLE ATHLETES

Sport psychology gives athletes a process for growth, outlining ways in which to acquire new skills, handle change, accept feedback, manage adversity, and increase their focus, confidence, and motivation.

 

The development of these skills, what we call a performance mindset, helps accelerate your athletes’ growth and skill development, and increase their ability to both communicate with their coaches, and receive instruction and corrective feedback.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Sport psychology teaches athletes skills to enhance their relationships with teammates and coaches, and techniques to expand their leadership potential, on and off the court.

 

They will learn to hold themselves and their peers accountable, create positive connections with those close to them, and utilize constructive communication strategies to build understanding and unity on their team.
