College coaches stress the importance of developing a strong mental game. Yet most young athletes disregard mindset training and focus solely on developing physical skills. Why?
The reality is that most athletes don't have access to mindset coaches or effective training tools. And this is exactly why Ryzer Mindset was created - to provide affordable, easy-to-use tools for athletes and teams to gain a mental edge.
Based on a 2022 survey of 300+ College Coaches using Ryzer
Today's generation of athletes might be the most athletic and technically trained ever - but mentally, they are struggling and that causes them to underachieve athletically. Two independent trends among elite athletes illustrate this:
Mental Toughness scoring among NFL prospects is down 12% over the last decade.
Confidence scoring on the TAP is down 11% across athletes of all levels in the last 5 years.
The Troutwine Athletic Profile (the "TAP") is a 20-minute online assessment that scores an athlete on 13 traits tied to athletic success to establish an athlete's current mindset baseline.
Our system then runs comparative analytics to categorize the traits for development prioritization and planning.
Novice when compared to peers.
Competitive with peers.
Elite when compared to peers.
I just read my daughter's TAP report and found it spot on. The traits mentioned in each category are on point and described her to a T. Thanks for this test, it has opened our eyes to strengths and weaknesses.

My daughter took the TAP and it was an eye opener for her. It helped her better understand her strengths and weaknesses and gave her a clear path to improve. She's already seen positive results from following the recommendations in the report, and she's excited to add mindset training to her regimen.
