Friday, January 10, is the first session of Mental Mindfulness Training for all Flatirons athletes.  Dr. Michael Rhoads will be addressing the mental aspects of succeeding as an athlete playing a team sport.  Dr. Mike is our mental skills coach, and his profile is posted here.  A taste of his topics include focus and concentration, encouraging competitiveness, staying in the present moment, handling errors, working with teammates, visual imagery and so much more.

This is the agenda going forward on upcoming Fridays, in the Eldorado Cafetorium beginning at 6:15pm:

Session I (1/10): An Introduction to Mindful Psychological Skills Training

Session II (1/17): Improving Concentration through Mindful Breathing

Session III (1/24): Practices to Improve your Will Power

Jan. 31: Performance Nutrition: Denver Broncos Nutritionist Bryan Snyder (looking for a larger facility than Eldorado)

Session IV (2/7): Using Imagery to Improve your Performance

Session V (2/21): Practices to Improve your Confidence and Self-Control


The Mindfulness Training will be held in the Eldorado Cafetorium beginning at 6:15pm.

While these presentations are geared toward the Jr. athlete, parents are welcome to sit in as space allows.

We hope to see you these Fridays!
