Coach Traub's Consulting Details for a baseball or softball team:

Level 1 Mental Skills Training

Team setting

The goal here is to clarify the thought patterns of the greatest athletes in the world. This also includes a discussion of common distorted thinking patterns and "curse" words to avoid both in speech and thought (see list of words at end of this document). When time permits, mental skills such as goal setting and imagery are explored. Team building activities are also included.

Level 2 Mental Skills Training

Small group or individual setting

This training works with individuals or groups (typically small groups) in situation-specific challenges to giving a best-effort performance. Knowing what to do is just the first step. Helping student-athletes to overcome their weaknesses and do what they know is where the rubber hits the road. This includes awareness exercises and strategy development for tapping into personal power to consistently excel both in practices (getting better, faster) and in competition (best effort under pressure).
