Over the past 34 years, I have spoken to thousands of coaches at the NSCAA, USYSA, AYSO National Conventions as well as at the National Coaching Symposium at The Olympic Training Center who have asked me for a program that would help them train their athletes to more consistently be at their best.
I’ve coached club soccer and U-18’s for almost 25 years and this is probably the best mental toughness coaching guide for this sport I’ve ever seen. It’s easily written, covers every aspect involved in developing a mentally tough team and players, and your sense of humor throughout makes reading it a pleasure. I was always a little tentative about talking about the mental side with my players, but not anymore. Now I have a “bible” to follow and refer back to. Great book! Thanks, – Jon R, California

As the former Sports Performance Consultant for the UConn Huskies men’s National Championship soccer team along with my extensive one-on-one work with professional, collegiate and junior soccer players over the last 34 years, I have created this manual and the companion player’s workbook to help you systematically build the mentally tough team you’ve always wanted!
In my experience, Dr. G is one of the leading sports performance consultants in soccer today. he has the knowledge, skills and experience to get players’ heads on straight so they perform their best when they have to. His Developing Mentally Tough Soccer Players is a great resource that will help any aspiring coach build mental toughness in his/her players and teams. – Ray Reid, UConn Soccer
Last season was the very first time I worked with your book (DMTS) with my entire team. I have to say I was a little intimidated to do mental training with my guys and not sure how they’d react. But I have to say that to a man, they have gotten fully on board with this! It helped that at the end of the season we won the League Championship! My guys have continued to comment on the skills they learned from our sessions. We’re in preseason now and have already started our mental sessions. Thank you for such a tremendous resource! It has made me a better coach! – Juan, North Carolina
