Impacts 50-90% of Athletic Performance 

Have you been told to "Stay Positive", "Be focused", "Get in the game", "Get in the zone" etc. But how do you achieve this? The majority of coaches out there are ill-equipped to help athletes with their mental performance and focus only on the physical aspect to push you further.

Coach Robert helps you set goals and gives you the tools to help prepare and maintain mental performance in these areas:

Focus and Concentration:

Maintaining focus during training and competition, avoiding distractions, and staying concentrated on the task at hand.

Confidence and Mindset:

Believing in one's abilities, having self-confidence, and managing doubts or insecurities.

Motivation and Mental Toughness:

Staying motivated, overcoming adversity, and developing resilience to handle pressure, setbacks, and challenges.

COGNITIVE VISION TRAINING

Image

Elevate your game by improving your cognitive skills through 11-aside VR scenarios recreated from real life games.

We offer advanced Virtual Reality in-game scanning and vision training to improve memory and awareness.

Scanning is vital for enhanced vision, decision-making, & teamwork.

Advanced decision making

Soccer is all about space and time. Professional players scan around them before they receive the ball.The difference between a pro-player and an aspiring player is that they are able to make decisions before they receive the ball vs on the ball.

This training  gains vital seconds and half yards over opponents & this teaches young players what their coaches cannot.
