Sports are emotional. Yet, student athletes today have the worst rated emotional health in decades. This is a recipe for significant concerns. It is also an opportunity for tremendous education as well as gaining a competitive mental advantage. At Mind of the Athlete, we are passionate about improving the emotional health of athletes. With a clearer mind, athletes can have better performance. Mind of the Athlete’s sports psychologist, author, and renowned speaker, Dr. Spencer, travels the country equipping athletes with psychological skills to thrive in today’s pressure cooker of sports. As a leading authority on the psychology of athletes, he teaches how an athlete’s mind works best. Dr. Spencer’s presentation style is a dynamic blend of information, entertainment, and inspiration.
