Athletes Must Win the Mental Game Too
School is back in full swing, and feelings of excitement and promise are replaced by stress, anxiety, and pressure for many students. Kids and their parents are bombarded with long to-do lists, deadlines, and full schedules.
Hockey players carry an enormous weight on their shoulders. They receive conflicting messages on hydration, proper nutrition, and physical health, but they completely overlook the importance of their mental well-being. It is something coaches and performers talk about, but focus little time towards.
We all know that depression and anxiety are on the rise, so we need to make the mental health of our athletes a top priority. So, what’s the solution?
Introducing MENTALLY CHARGED:
Mentally Charged is an online mental training program that builds the mental toughness of hockey players at all levels, from the grassroots to the pros. Our mobile-friendly, easy-to-use FREE mental training membership provides players with timely content such as blogs, videos, and podcasts that align with the hockey season. Mentally Charged aims to increase confidence and focus while providing the tools to cope with stress and anxiety. Our lessons train the brain, just as exercise strengthens the body.
Mentally Charged offers three membership tiers (one of which is FREE) so that parents, coaches, and players can learn online, anytime, anywhere. Combine this with a group of strong individual athletes and you have a winning team. Better players mean better team results.
The Mentally Charged Way:
Each video, podcast and article tackles an issue players universally share at some point in their career. Coach Corey shares anecdotes from his professional hockey career and applies sports psychology and neuroscience principles to equip you with strategies to overcome roadblocks.
Traditionally, sports psychology was reserved for professional athletes, as it was formal and costly, but with the memberships that MC offers, members can login and gain access to their tailor-made content each and every day.
Mentally Charged was born out of a desire by the company’s founder, Corey Lucas, to combine a love of hockey with a passion of sports psychology. As a former professional hockey player, certified mental strength coach, teacher, and coach of over 10 years, Corey is acutely aware and concerned with the mental aspect of the game of hockey. After experiencing first-hand the stress, pressure, and anxiety that’s involved in the game, Corey decided that he could help others by sharing his knowledge and expertise. Through the use of technology, Corey continues to develop and provide the techniques that hockey players need to overcome the pressure, stress and anxiety that are involved both on and off the ice.
