"Sportsmind is dedicated to helping coaches and athletes find that "competitive advantage". As a Manager of athletes and coaches, I am always looking for opportunities to expand the horizons of our people. Work-shops such as this one, with presenters forcing athletes to "think outside the square", are invaluable. We were able to ensure that each participant had a "take away" from each session, and they will be able to put those new learning points into action."

"Jeffrey, thanks for the excellent experience that was Sportsmind Coaching Excellence. Having spent the past 18 months studying various courses, some, like yours, by correspondence, I have no qualms in saying that yours was not only by far the most challenging, but also the most enjoyable and rewarding. The superb range of skills, knowledge, and understanding that I have gained have given me real confidence. When I look back and see what I have learned it is amazing! The books and tapes provided are excellent resources, and your encouragement, and positive and insightful marking have made the whole experience very worthwhile. Thankyou for everything!"

Fear Gets Replaced By Certainty
I practice a skill over and over even if I am afraid of it. Soon enough, the fear starts to fade and is replaced by certainty and confidence. It takes courage and discipline to want to be better than I am today. It takes careful planning, trust in my decisions and plain hard work. I will always challenge myself a step further than my competitors. This is what it takes.
