The Soccer Brain: Learn how to profile your players to better understand how the mind drives behaviors

The National Soccer Coaches Association of America and Provelop have partnered to provide coaches attending the 2013 Summer Symposium with the opportunity to add an additional education opportunity to their weekend. 

The Provelop 1-Day Coaching Intensive Program

For years, the majority of player development has revolved around the physical and tactical elements of the game. But in order to fully maximize player potential, both on and off the field, a coach needs to be able to train the mind of a player as well. Even with the most gifted athletes, mental toughness is the key to long-term development and success. 

As the official neuroscience conditioning partner of the NSCAA, Provelop is excited to offer a program specifically designed for this year’s symposium. The Provelop system was created to provide coaches with a unique set of developmental tools based around the mind of an athlete. During this 1-day program, which includes an additional online course, coaches will learn how to use mental conditioning in order to impact player performance.

The NSCAA and Provelop are happy to announce a special promotion for the upcoming summer symposium. The first 10 coaches who sign up for the Provelop 1-day Coaching Intensive Program on August 3 will receive 15 free profiles for their team. This is a powerful and unique opportunity to start making a fundamental change in the minds of your athletes at no additional cost to you and your players. Sign up today to make sure you don’t miss out!
