Over the past 34 years, I have worked one on one with divers at every level and their coaches, and written extensively on the subject of peak performance in THE DIVER. I’ve learned first hand the challenges diving coaches face in helping their athletes overcome fears and balking and perform to their potential.
Your “14 Steps” and Diving MP3s have some of my favorite “teaching tales” (especially the donkey story!) and my divers really love them! During our sectional finals, one of my divers was not diving to his potential even though we put the dives he was most comfortable with in the beginning of the competition. He usually handles stress well and lets go of his bad dives. Not today. After 5 dives there was a break and I shared the “donkey story” with him to “shake it off and step up!”Sure enough, after the break he performed beautifully! Great stuff! – Vicki, NJ
Coaches want to know:
- Why do my divers fall apart under pressure?
- What causes them to mysteriously lose certain dives?
- How do I help them overcome their fears and blocks?
- What can I do to build their mental toughness?
- How do I best prepare them mentally for their BIG meets?
- How do I get their parents to work with me, NOT against me?
Your MP3 program for divers REALLY helped me. I was always a good diver in practice but something would happen to me under pressure.I don’t know if it was fear or what, but I’d get easily intimidated by the DD of other divers or their reputation. Your program helped me see that my focus was on all the wrong things and taught me how to stay cool under big competition pressure. I just qualified for Nationals and I’ve been trying to do that for over 3 years! There’s no question I was able to do that because I’m just tougher mentally now!Thanks so much! – Brian, Texas
I get it. You want your divers to succeed, and it can be incredibly frustrating to understand why they’re balking on dives that they have already mastered or performing much better in practice than they do at meets! What if I could provide you with the same tools and strategies I’ve used to help thousands of coaches build mentally tough divers?
Dear Dr G, I am emailing you over a year after our last conversation to say YES it worked!!! I have followed your advice and got Dee Dee the download version of your diving package. She now understands and accepts that fear is NORMAL! Your material has helped her get over her fear of reverses and she has even done them in a couple of competitions both on 1m and 3m. Totally Amazing! I would recommend your program to anyone who dives and is struggling with fear. So a very big thank you for what you do! – Tina Pennsylvania

Amazing Book! (This Is Your Brain On Sports) Purchased this book for my husband and once he started reading the book, he couldn’t put it down. He said it was fascinating and so “spot on”. My husband played professional ball and my son is currently at a Div I college playing ball. My husband said that if he knew what this book speaks of back when he played pro ball, he would have had a longer pro career. Every athlete, coach, and parent (especially father) of an athlete will benefit from reading this book. – Amazon Review
