Mindful Sports certification training program opens August 15th, 2020. Contact us for more information and/or to reserve a spot today!

Mindful Sports Foundations is a four-week course teaching coaches about mindfulness for themselves. Specifically created for coaches, this course can help you manage the stressors and challenges of youth sports. Whether working with high level travel and showcase athletes or preadolescent kids just learning how to play, Mindful Sports Foundations will provide simple and basic tools for helping with stress.

Mindful Sports In Action is our second level course, a five-week program teaching coaches how to teach mindfulness to young athletes. The course covers the best, research-backed ways to teach mindfulness to young athletes ages 5-18. Curriculum, teaching strategies, and videos of kids learning mindfulness through sports are included to help you learn how to bring mindfulness to your athletes and teams.

Mindful Sports certification training programs help you learn about mindfulness and how to use mindfulness to help your young athletes. In our two online courses, coaches will:

  • Learn about mindfulness and start your a personal practice

  • Understand how mindfulness connects to sports and performance

  • Use mindfulness to improve coaching and communication with young athletes

  • Learn how to teach mindfulness and self-regulation skills to train your athletes and teams

When another teammate instigated bullying against [my son] Jack , Sam responded with skill and sensitivity towards everyone involved.  In our conversation about the day’s events, he listened intently and synthesized everything I said.  He implemented a plan the following day that not only ameliorated my son’s fears but actually brought the whole team to a better place as a group.  The incident could have been scarring for my child; instead, it was affirming and, ultimately, even rewarding.  He wants to come back for two weeks next summer!  Given how adeptly and sensitively Sam and his coaches handled the situation, I’m not at all sorry that it happened.  The whole week was tremendous for Jack on so many levels.
