Every athlete’s situation is unique, but all athletes experience the same types of struggles (i.e., lack of confidence, worried about what others think, overthinking, frustrated, fear of failure… etc). As such, the principles and the processes we use to help athletes work on their mental game is consistent from athlete to athlete even though their situations are all unique. This is also true from the junior athletes to the professionals.
The CEP Hybrid Programs provide athletes with the 1:1 interaction, but support it with our weekly group calls and online programs. This program is growing in popularity because it can be just as effective as 1:1 our programs. It also brings the added benefit of seeing and hearing that you are not alone, that others are experiencing the same struggles as you. Which is why many of our athletes transition into this program after completing their 1-on-1 programs.
In our CEP Hybrid Programs, we use the same assessment as we use in the 1-on-1 programs that helps athletes understand what their mental skills are and how they can work on them. We then provide athletes with the tools and exercises to develop their mental skills through the Online Course. This is a series of recorded videos that walk you through key principles and exercises. During this time you have weekly access to Dr. Cassidy Preston and the CEP team in the group calls to ask any questions about principles and tools. During these group calls the coaches discuss the latest questions and examples to further guide the athletes in utilizing these tools and exercises effectively & efficiently.
There are different CEP Group calls with varying dates and times that help make sure the athletes are in groups with similar ages and sports. There is also a monthly parent group call so that parents can engage in the process and have the opportunity to ask direct questions to our coaches. All the group calls are recorded and stored in our CEP Mastermind Library. Therefore, you will have access to all previous sessions while you are in the program and if you ever miss a session you can catch it the next day.
During the live group calls the athletes are not expected to talk and engage verbally, but many do speak up and as athletes get comfortable the athletes begin to engage more and more. This non-intrusive form of interaction helps ensure the athletes stay accountable to engaging in the process and doing the work, while respecting the fact that many athletes will not want to share during the group calls.
