Under pressure, will you break down or break through?


Today’s youth can do anything—but it’s not going to happen by itself.  This camp will clarify distinctions about how the greatest athletes in the world trained to get where they are.  Today’s softball world teaches the physical skills of performance impressively well, but it’s a sink-or-swim world when it comes to mental skills. If you have investedsignificant time or money into your performance, but have not maxed out your potential, then you cannot afford to skip out on training your brain!

Get Better, Faster


The goal of this camp is for athletes to leave with clear distinctions about how to train smart, working on both their physical skills and mental skills at the same time. 


A typical camp might have a schedule that looks like this:

Introductions—Mental Skills Training

Dynamic Stretching and Awareness

Focused Throw and Catch

Throwing Contest

Dealing with Adversity and Pressure

Imagery Experience

Hitting Drills: Practice Hard and Smart

MST's 3 C's - Control, Confidence, and Courage

Building Routines to Guarantee Your Best Effort

Infield, Outfield, Catching or Pitching Instruction

The Peak Performance Camp has a flexible schedule, but it is often a half-day event (4 hours long).

Coach Traub's public camps have a per camper fee.

Any organization can host this event for a flat fee or by having enough interested student-athletes.

If your organization hosts this event and registrations exceed Coach Traub's fee, this camp becomes a training event AND a fundraiser for you!


Do you know exactly how to practice to get the most out of your ability and be a clutch performer? The answer exists first in your set of mental skills and second in the way you practice your physical skills. To succeed, you need a plan that is guaranteed to work if you execute it precisely. This camp will give you that plan! Coach Traub’s guarantee to you is that if this is not the best single-day of camp you have ever experienced, simply tell him so after the camp. Your suggestion about how to make it better will be worth the money he will pay you: a 100% refund.
