The mental game is what separates good players from great players. It is what separates great players from becoming legendary players. Most players only work on improving the physical aspect - getting bigger, faster, stronger, and gaining additional skill - but they ignore their mental game.
As players advance from grade school to high school, and high school to college and beyond, the mental game becomes more important. What's better, players can apply these mental skills to other aspects of their life.
At Top Mental Game, it is our mission to provide our clients with the mental skills necessary to maximize their potential and perform at their best.
Top Mental Game is modeled after the Army’s Center for Enhanced Performance (ACEP), a program designed in the late 1990s at the United States Military Academy at West Point to enhance the performance of the Corps of Cadets. In addition to helping cadets in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and during military training, the program quickly grew and helped prepare soldier-athletes preparing for the Olympics and the Army’s elite Special Forces to take their training to the next level.
I first came into contact with this program as a member of West Point’s first-ever Patriot League Championship baseball team. I reunited with ACEP again when I returned to the Academy as a professor in the Department of Social Sciences, using the program this time for personal and professional goal-attainment and mental skills training.
Upon retiring from the military after 20 years of service, I decided to bring the secrets of ACEP to the civilian world, founding Top Mental Game in 2017. Since then, Top Mental Game has helped hundreds of individual clients and athletic teams to maximize their potential, enhance their performance, and achieve their personal, professional, or athletic goals.
