Under Pressure

We've all watched this scene play out. A young athlete consistently performs in practice. No problem. But when it's time to compete, they fail to deliver.

The TAP identifies what is holding the athlete back. Ryzer's Elite Mindset Training courses provide the solution.

Gianna Paul | Soccer

"Mental toughness is so important when it comes to soccer, so important when it comes to any sport. If you're not mentally tough it's going to be impossible. It's going to be you ripping on yourself game after game after game and then that actually takes away your love from the sport."

Jack Fracyon | Lacrosse

"I would put athleticism and mental execution on the same pedestal. You need to be able to be mentally tough to be relied on."

Shyanne Sellers | Basketball

"90% of the game is mental, the other 10% comes with skill. But if you're not mentally there, then you're not going to be able to perform to your greatest ability."

Mason Richman | Football

"The thing that's going to get you noticed to be different than other guys is how much you're willing to do the job that the coach wants or the team needs. Team, teammate, self is the hierarchy of stuff you have to put in order."

Mimi Colyer | Volleyball

"Have the ability to fail fast. Fail fast, you get over it, get back up and keep learning wherever you are."

KJ Simpson | Basketball

"Ultimately, when there's an obstacle in the way you just have to figure out a way to maneuver around it. Not only in basketball, but in life as well."

Kalani Kossa-Rienzi | Soccer

"Even if you're the best in the world, it's hard to make a team work, if you aren't following what everyone else is following. Coachability is a huge thing especially at the collegiate level."

Ethan Petry | Baseball

"I try to stay positive and look at the positive side of things. If I had a bad game, I look at what I did the best and what I did to contribute."

Mia Scott | Softball

"My coaches have always told me to control the controllables so that's something that's always stuck with me and something that I like to remind myself when things do happen."

Mental Toughness

It's no secret that the world of sports is hard and if an athlete is not mentally tough, they'll never make it.

Athletes will utilize these traits to become mentally tough and gain the ability to persist when faced with the reality of the sports world.

Coachability boot camp icon


Athletes and parents spend countless hours and money looking for the perfect coach, but finding the perfect coach means nothing if an athlete is not "coachable". During the boot camp, you'll learn how to become more "coachable". This involves taking courses in Growth Mindset, Attention to Detail, and Conventionality, which are important qualities that will help you use your coach's advice to improve your game.
