Mental Game of Baseball

About this course:
Are you mentally tough enough?  Do you spend time practicing the mental side of baseball?  Do you realize that this is a skill and that it can be dramatically improved?

The Cognitive Advantage Program (CAP) course will teach you the HOW of the mental side of baseball. It will impact your game as much as anything you can do. The techniques that you will learn will have lasting effects on your game and on your life.

The Problem: 
Baseball coaches spend 95% of practice time on the physical side of the game. This is not a fault - they need all the time they can get to mold and polish the team. These same coaches know how important the mental side of the game is, but don't have the resources to teach it. Instead, they rely on the game itself to teach these valuable lessons - the hard way and the long way. They teach as lessons unfold based on circumstance. If they knew how to be more proactive and teach the lessons like in the CAP, as a process and as a system, they would jump all over it.

Do you want to speed up the process? Do you realize many things considered physical skills could be dramatically improved upon if approached as a mental skill? Vision, reaction time, and focus are examples of a few critical areas where you can excel compared to your competition - if you learn how!

The Solution:

Take the Cognitive Advantage Program's - 4 module, 37-lesson course.  You can't just talk about the mental game.  You need to plan it, groom it, and practice it.  Imagine how crummy of a hitter or pitcher you would be if you just talked about it, instead of practicing it over and over.  Just talking about the mental game is the most common approach. This systematic course will guide you to a place that you dream about. Put action into your dreams.
