We are Never Rattled. It is our brand's foundation. Every component in our clinics reinforces positive body language, mental discipline, and a next play mentality.
*This is a sample program. All Never Rattled Team Training sessions are customized and designed to fit individual team needs.*
Each session will begin with a 10 minute motivational talk on the value of positivity, mental toughness, and togetherness.
Capitalizing on the inspirational energy, Coach Bergman will lead 10 minutes of dynamic stretching, and sport specific warm up.
After our stretch, we will jump into 20 minutes of athletic development stations. The focus for this segment will be hip strength and flexibility, core strength, balance, explosiveness and change of direction.
Next will be our competitive segment. Using game-like competitive scenarios, Coach Bergman will emphasize the value of positive comunication and body language.
We conclude our sessions with a yoga flow. Connecting breath to movement, Coach Bergman uses this time not only to stretch and decompress, but as an opportunity to teach the basics of mindfulness.
Prior to our departure, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on what they learned as we discuss steps to take their mental game to the next level.
