Is this you?

  • You’re the coach of a high school or college sports team
  • You have athletes whose mental game is holding them back
  • You want to maximize their success, both on and off the field 

If so, keep reading because this training is perfect for you!

Here’s the Reality …

You know your athletes need to train their bodies.

You probably also know (because you’ve watched them struggle) that to be their best, they also need to train their mind and emotions.


That’s why the new Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy is so exciting. It gives you simple, practical way to help your athletes improve their mental game in a way they never could before.


Just imagine the difference that can make!

“More focus, more confidence, better decisions under pressure, more self-discipline, less stress. This training will help more, and more quickly,than anything else.”

That’s a bold claim, we know. But we can make it (and back it up) because we know the Raise Your Inner Game material is uniquely powerful


Raise Your Inner Game is the world’s first (and only) practical training in how to develop: 

1) Attention Control 

2) Emotional Self-regulation

3) Impulse Control

These three skills are fundamental to peak performance, affecting every aspect of an athlete’s life, both on and off the field. 

They’re easily understood and learned by virtually anyone. But RYIG is the only practical training available anywhere in how to develop these powerful inner skills.

Imagine the difference if your athletes could …

  • Have more focus (block out distractions, keep their head in the game)
  • Make better decisions under pressure
  • Be more confident against good opponents
  • Perform as well in competition as they do in practice
  • Have more resilience and mental toughness
  • Train more effectively
  • Have more willpower and self-discipline
  • Enjoy themselves more, not get so stressed out

That’s what RAISE YOUR INNER GAME SPORTS ACADEMY teaches them to do! 

Listen to what others are saying …

“Overcome performance issues”

“I was having trouble with small mental issues dragging down my performance. This training gave me an easy way to pin down the issues and put them behind me, so I was ready for competition. I would recommend this course for anyone who is struggling with their focus and mindset. It will help you overcome your performance issues and give you a new perspective about how to approach things in all aspects of life.”

Coach Training Q&A

What does this training enable me to do? 

We believe strongly that you, as the coach, are the perfect person to bring this material to your team, and the Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy Coach Training gives you everything you need to do that. First, you learn how to lead your athletes through a classroom training where they learn the skills for raising their Inner Game. Then, you learn how best to work with them on putting what they’ve learned into action. Ultimately, the training enables you to become an elite-level mental performance coach for your athletes and make a profound difference in their lives both on and off the field.

This sounds great, but I’m worried about having time for it. How can I fit this into my busy schedule?

We understand. We really do. But it shouldn’t be a problem. Here are a few thoughts on how you can fit this in:

  • You don’t have to do it during the season. The training is self-directed and you go at your own pace. So you can take it whenever it works for you. 
  • The audio from each chapter is available as an MP3, so you can download the files and listen away from your computer. 
  • Most of the time involved is in the beginning, and it really just involves finding a couple of afternoons with your team for the initial training.
  • You could have your team captain or an assistant coach lead the classroom sessions. 
  • Once that’s done, it’s just a matter of having the conversations with your athletes — just a moment here and there. It will take little or no extra time to incorporate the mental game coaching into what you’re already doing.
  • You only have to do the Coach Training once. Once you’ve been through it, you’ll be certified from then on and able to lead future trainings with very little prep time required.
  • The return on your initial time investment is HUGE! In other words, yes, it does take some extra time in the beginning, but it’s well worth it! And the investment only gets more valuable over time.

Could my team captain or someone else from my coaching team lead the classroom sessions?

Absolutely. Having your team captain do it can be an especially great way to go. We still recommend that you take the training first so you can plan everything out and learn the material. Then, have your team captain or assistant coach go through the first two modules. At that point, they should be ready to do a great job leading the classroom training. 

Do I have to master the material myself first?

No, but great question! We said “teach,” but the core teaching is actually done by David on video. You do learn the material as part of the program, and you learn it well. But your role during the live training is more of a facilitator than a teacher. We find that this approach has a much greater impact for your athletes, plus it’s easier and more enjoyable for the session leader (you).

How long does it take to complete the Coach Training?

Once you register, you can begin immediately. After that, we estimate it will take 6-8 hours to complete the course and feel ready to begin working with your team. Depending on your schedule, you should be ready in 1-2 weeks. 

What does the process involve for my athletes?

First, they learn the core material in a live, video-based training, led by you. This can be done in one full day, two half days, or five one-hour sessions. After their initial training, you work with them to put what they’ve learned into action. 

How soon should I see results?

As soon as you’re done with the live training! The material is so practical and actionable, many of your athletes will put it to work right away. For others, their results will appear more slowly. But you should notice at least some improvements right away with virtually everyone. Also, the training gives you a common language to talk with them about their mental game, which will feel like another immediate and helpful improvement.

Can I offer the training more than once (with future teams and players)? 

Absolutely. Your tuition gives you full access to all the materials, and there is no recertification requirement. You just need to make sure that each student has their own participant materials.

How long do I have access to the training area?


Do you have trainers who can come in and lead the live training for us? 

We don’t. We strongly believe that you, as their coach, or perhaps the team leader, are the best people to bring the material to your team. When an outsider comes in, they take the ownership and enthusiasm with them when they leave. For maximum impact,  the process really needs to be led internally.

What if I’ve never done anything like this before (lead a live, video-based training)?

No worries. David has over twenty years experience training people just like you to facilitate video-based training. You can be confident that the system has everything you need to make sure you do a great job. In fact, in some ways, a lack of experience is an advantage, because you won’t have any preconceptions about how the live training should go.

Also, this is why we offer a full, money-back guarantee. If you give it your best but ultimately decide that you really can’t do it, let us know within the first 30 days and we’ll give you a full refund, no questions asked.

Does the Sports Academy training work with younger players?

The program is designed for students 14-21 years old. It’s possible that it would help younger students, too, but our guess is that you’d need to make some modifications to the program. Meaning, you probably wouldn’t want to have them go through the full program, but would instead pull out some of the top-level concepts and work with them on those only.

If you do want to try the material with younger students, reach out to us and others in the Coaches Forum for ideas on how to proceed. We would love to help!

Do you offer sport-specific training? 

We do not. The mechanics of the Inner Game and the strategies for controlling it are the same for all sports, and frankly, for all areas of our lives. 

Having said that, it is true that the more you can speak in terms that your athletes relate to, the more effective the training will be. So, the system encourages you to incorporate your own sport-specific terms and scenarios into the training.

I support the Positive Coach Alliance’s vision for youth sports. How does this program align with that? 

Perfectly. Truly, there isn’t a single element of the Raise Your Inner Game material that isn’t in complete agreement with the PCA vision, especially with it’s focus on Mastery versus the Scoreboard. Self-mastery is the most fundamental mastery of all! 

Bottom line, if you’re a believer in PCA, you will love Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy. And the skills athletes learn in this training will help them bring every element of the PCS vision to life more quickly and completely. 

If I’ve taken a PCA training, should I also take the Sports Academy training? 

If you’re looking to improve your team’s mental game, then yes, absolutely.

The reality is, no matter what other training you and your team have been through, the Raise Your Inner Game program will still be uniquely and powerfully helpful for you. Why? Because the skills this training teaches are not taught anywhere else.  

Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy teaches three powerful self-mastery skills — cognitive control, emotional self-regulation, and impulse control. These skills are considered THE fundamental success skills. And this program is the ONLY practical training available anywhere in how to develop them.

How is this different from other “mindset” trainings?

The biggest difference is in THE SKILLS IT TEACHES

When you get right down to it, other mindset programs are essentially motivational programs. That is, they take some sort of negative state the athlete is experiencing and give them positive thoughts to think instead. For example, they might suggest repeating a particular phrase when the athlete is upset or performing a specific gesture when the athlete makes a mistake. 

These techniques can be helpful, for sure. But they’re also quite limited. For one, they only apply to those specific situations, so you still need to come up with something for every other situation that may arise. For another, they tend to not work in the actual moments when help is most needed — in the middle of a run or a play, for example, when the athlete gets distracted or stuck in negative self-talk. So they’re ultimately just not that helpful.

But here’s the biggest problem with other approaches: Peak athletic performance comes when you are completely focused and present in the moment rather than being off in your thoughts somewhere.

The techniques in other programs, though better than nothing, still leave the athlete in their head. So, by definition, they can never help them reach their full potential. 

The Raise Your Inner Game skills, on the other hand, are specifically designed to get the athlete out of their head and fully into the present moment.

There’s no more important and powerful difference than that. And there’s no other training available that teaches these skills.

Another big difference is that Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy isCOACH-LED. Other programs rely on an outsider coming in and presenting the material or on the student teaching themselves through a self-directed course, and they’re essentially single events versus a true training process that evolves over time. 

We could talk about this all day but in our experience, NO single event or program presented by an outsider or self-directed training will EVER have the impact of one led and held by the coaching staff. It’s not even close. 

A third important difference is the CLARITY OF THE CONTENT. As the author/co-author of six books, one of which has sold over a million copies worldwide (QBQ!), David has a proven record of making content simple and actionable. In fact, it might be his super power. :-) 

It sounds obvious, but if people don’t get what you’re saying and know what they’re supposed to do with it, they won’t use it. 

Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy  is not another training that sounds good but ends up sitting on the shelf not being used. This material was intentionally written to be so accessible and actionable that virtually anyone can understand it and immediately put it into action. 

Finally, on a per student basis, Raise Your Inner Game Sports Academy is SIGNIFICANTLY LESS EXPENSIVE than other trainings. With other programs, you either bring in an outsider for a single event (expensive), or you pay per-student for a self-directed online course (also surprisingly expensive). With this program, for one low price you learn to lead the training yourself, and the student materials are as little as $10 each. 

Less expensive plus greater impact. That’s a winning combination!

What materials are included in the Coach Training?

The training is video-based and includes quizzes, worksheets, and transcripts. It’s a comprehensive system, based on over twenty years experience in training and development, designed to give you everything you need to effectively bring the material to your team. Your tuition includes: 

  • Full access to the online materials
  • Access to an additional product with just the videos you use in your live session. 
  • Access to the Sport Academy Coaches Forum
  • A Leader Guide, for planning and leading the live training
  • A hardcover copy of the book Raise Your Inner Game
  • A custom Sports Academy pen

What materials do the students/athletes receive?

The students’ primary tool is the Participant Workbook. During the live training, students follow along in their workbook and fill in the blanks. This is essential for staying focused on the videos, and helps them remember more of what they learn. The workbook also includes a custom Workout Journal they will use to put what they’ve learned into action.

In addition, the full Participant Kit also includes a Sports Academy pen and a hardcover copy of the Raise Your Inner Game book. These items are helpful for refreshing the material. More important, the book gives students an easy way to include their parents in what they’re learning, which help parents better support them in putting the skills into action. 

Are student materials included in the Coach Training?

No. They need to be purchased separately from our Coaches Resource Store located inside the training area. 

Does every student need a full Participant Kit?

We recommend each student has the full kit because that has the greatest impact, but it’s also fine if they  have the workbook only. Full kits as well as individual kit components are available in the Coaches Resource Store. You can mix and match however it best serves your team.  

How do I order student materials?

There’s a link to the Coaches Resource Store inside the training area. Click the link, select the items you want, complete the checkout process. It’s all very straightforward, and happens right there on that page.

Does the training come with a guarantee? 

Absolutely. 30 days, 100%, money back, no questions asked. 

Can I take the trainings from outside the USA?

Yes. All the learning materials are accessible through our learning portal and include access to video modules for self-paced individual study. But please note that all the materials are in English. 

Do I need a computer or any special skills to do the trainings?

No special skills are needed, and the material is mobile-friendly, so a computer is not absolutely required. But you will need good internet access, and you will want to be able to download and printout the support materials. 

I’m not on Facebook. Can I still use the Coaches Forum? 

Yes! The Forum is not a Facebook group. It’s a dedicated Forum, hosted in the same portal as the Coach Training.

How does the certification process work?

Certification, in this case, just means that you have completed the training. When you finish the course, we send you a Completion Certificate and a Certified Coach badge that you can share however you wish.

“I promise …”

Enrolling in a program like this is not an easy decision. Will it work? Will they use it? Will it make a real difference for them? Can I teach it? I totally get it. (That’s one reason we offer a no-risk guarantee.) 

But I promise, if you have players whose mental game is holding them back, or if you’re looking to give your team an extra edge, or if you just want to help your athletes develop the life skills that they are not learning anywhere else, you are going to be so happy you did this. Register now and get started today! 

Q: Will this really make a difference?A: YES! (for four reasons)

1) Practical Self-Mastery Skills.Cognitive control, emotional self-regulation, and impulse control are THE fundamental success skills, especially for athletes, and RYIG is the world’s first and only practical training in how to develop all three.

2) Simple and Accessible. The Raise Your Inner Game material is easy to understand and incorporate into our daily lives. Frankly, this is one of its biggest advantages over other trainings. In fact, the comment we hear most often is, “I can’t imagine anyone NOT being helped by it!” And it’s proven to be effective with teenagers

3) World-Class Facilitation Training. I’ve been teaching people how to facilitate live trainings for over 20 years, and I learned from some of the best. This simple but powerful system gives you everything you need to effectively bring this material to your team. 

4) Coaches Forum. The private Forum helps you get all your questions answered, and virtually guarantees that the training will make the biggest possible impact in the shortest possible time

I look forward to seeing you in the Sports Academy!

P.S. Remember, there’s no risk: The SPORTS ACADEMY comes with a 30-day, 100% guarantee.
