ATTENTION: YOUTH BasEball/SOFTBALL Players, COACHES, PARENTS
NEW TRAining System Destroys Nervousness, Timid Play & 
Loss of Confidence
Hitters: Can't bring practice swing to the game?
Pitchers:  Make a couple mistakes & lose confidence?
AREN'T YOU SICK AND TIRED OF:
  •  CHOKING UNDER PRESSURE 
  •  SCARED TO GO HEAD TO HEAD AGAINST TOUGH OPPONENTS
  •  YOUNG ATHLETES WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES
  •  PLAYERS WHO CAN’T BRING THEIR PRACTICE GAME TO COMPETITION
  •  CAN'T LET GO OF MISTAKES WHICH BLEED INTO THE NEXT AT BAT
Whether you are a player, coach, or parent of a player, you’ve undoubtedly experienced this: 
  • A player who is in love with baseball/softball, works hard on their skills and conditioning all week.
  • The player is coachable, works well with teammates and has a good baseball/softball I.Q. 
  •  The player is smooth, aggressive, and dynamic in the cages and on the mound in practice.
And then comes real game time... 
  •  Player has an early poor at bat or inning for a pitcher, (or some other choke), beats self up, confidence takes a nosedive and that player you saw dominate in practice completely disappears.
 WHAT DO YOU DO ABOUT IT? 
 THE OLD WAY:
Player gets told things like:
“Forget about it, baseball/softball is a game of mistakes...blah blah” 
“Think positive thoughts”
“You just have to believe in yourself”
“Get your head in the game and focus”
"Set your goals and work harder"

Or, the coach pulls the player out of the starting lineup to try to “reset” the attitude.

Solutions Like This That You Find In A
Hundred Old Books On Amazon Don’t Cut It, and Worse….

The player goes into a mental tailspin because they now get the idea that “something is wrong with me” because the great advice they were just told doesn’t work. In their mind, it can’t be because the advice is bad because it came from a trusted coach or adult. 
Therefore, the player unconsciously concludes “I am broken” 

...and the seeds of a lifelong destructive belief system around “success” are now planted and begin to grow. Each choking instance or mistake, like the above example, is like water and fertilizer on that weed.   

Of course, what you keep seeing is that the player continues to play decent or even great in practice but not in a meaningful real game, showcase, or tournament.  
At best, you see INCONSISTENT CONFIDENCE. 
Sometimes they have it and sometimes they don’t and this is usually determined by how tough the opponent is at any given game. If they think they are better than their opponent, then they might have confidence. If not, then no confidence, just tension, tightness and timidity. 


At Worst - Performance Anxiety & Deep-Seated Fear of Failure Embedded Beliefs. 

...that just keep getting worse over time if left unaddressed. This turns into life-long mental blocks to success for anything!
THIS DOES NOT GO AWAY ON IT’S OWN. HERE’S THE NEW WAY:
  • Create a belief in the player about their ability to change nervous system reactions that currently interfere with their performance potential.
  •  Build a Relentless attitude through a full awareness of how their mind works. 
  •  Teach them how to control their mental/emotional state.
  •  Shift their identity from external praise to internal certainty about their abilities, talents and resources that are NOT dependent on temporary external feedback. (THIS IS TRUE CONFIDENCE)
  •  Design relevant and specific “antidotes” to clear fear of failure, fear of success, and mental blocks.  
  •  Deliver the “antidotes” to the control mechanism of the nervous system.
  •  Give them a means to improve their skills (potential) off the field, anywhere.
  •  Inspire them through meaningful stories they emotionally connect to because they can RELATE to the messages at their own level of understanding.
Do not underestimate the last bullet point above! You cannot give the same advice to a kid as you would an adult and expect them to get it. I have learned this from working with hundreds of sports kids, in person, one on one going deep into their thinking patterns. 

All of this leads to the real secret to inner change work that the player must accomplish:

INTEGRATION  

This is a systematic process built into our training and it all begins and ends with this formula:  
As you can see, this NEW solution isn’t your grandpa’s country advice like you see in those old sports movies and we aren’t in Kansas anymore Toto, right? Hard work isn’t enough anymore. Everybody is working hard and the competition these days is insane! 

Think about how baseball and softball coaching, training and the game itself have changed over the last few decades due to increased competition. We have video analysis, devices, software, apps and crazy high tech wizardry to teach every last teeny detail about hitting and pitching and yet,  

MOST COACHES ARE STILL USING OUTDATED, INEFFECTIVE MENTAL TECHNIQUES THEY READ IN A BOOK SOMEWHERE THAT WAS WRITTEN IN THE 90’s.  

Or

Coaches are totally ignoring the mental game altogether because if a player can’t hack it, well, there’s another one right behind them to take their place. 

It’s not your fault, hardly anyone is teaching modern mental toughness techniques because…

Players are totally expendable and if you can’t hack it, you’re out!
(or sitting the bench).
INTRODUCING THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION
WHO IS THIS FOR?
For baseball and softball players (both boys and girls from 8-18) who: 
  • know that they have more ability, more skills, or more talent than has been actually showing up in competition...then this is for you!
  •  are batters who strike out in crucial situations, lose their confidence, and can't get it back before the next at bat.
  •  coach has been telling you that you need to get more aggressive or get some swagger.
  •  are too nervous or even some shaking when facing a better player.
  •  are pitchers who can’t let go of mistakes like walking a couple players or allowing a home run. 
  •  struggle to control their emotions and beat themselves up in the dugout and for days after a game.
  •  feel like your window of opportunity, to get to the next level, is closing...this is for you!
  •  ...whose parents want their kids to learn powerful success and life skills through their love of playing sport - courage, dedication, determination, and fearlessness!
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE
Your standard advice to “just think positive and believe in yourself” doesn't cut it.... 
Your standard advice to “just think positive and believe in yourself” DOESN'T WORK for many players. It might have been enough in the old days before year-round baseball/softball, travel teams, and the extreme GLOBAL competition for scholarships these days. 

This program is new and different because of 2 things: 
1. This program is built on my R.A.C.E. Formula methodology. 
I created this from 13+ years of working with athletes who struggle with the issues above. It is specifically designed to solve these problems.  

R.A.C.E. is R. Relentless A. Awareness C. Clear (the mental junk) and E. Emotional Mastery. 

Through trial and error working with hundreds of athletes, I’ve identified these key components to transforming an athlete’s nervous system reactions that, up until now, nobody has consistently been able to shift like my RACE formula does.  
 2. This program is specifically designed for kids and up through high school who play baseball or softball.  
Most all other mental game advice has been created by and targeted to the collegiate and adult athlete. It comes from studies using adult players….NOT THE KIDS. 

From working one on one with hundreds of kids, in person, I have discovered that you can’t teach kids the same things and in the same way that you teach adults. (no brainer, right? Why does everyone ignore this?)

Depending on maturity, kids 11 and under will do best if going through the training with a parent or adult to help them get the concepts and match them to their family’s values.  

This is an excellent parent/child bonding experience for parents with younger athletes!! 
WHAT IS IT?
The Basetball/Softball Mental Toughness training program is 25 videos averaging 9 min each and designed to be watched in order but can be used like a library to specifically target typical baseball/softball mental blocks. The videos are broken down into 8 modules. Each video teaches a powerful lesson that builds on the last one utilizing cutting edge accelerated human learning technologies. 
In addition, there is an .mp3 audio guided visualization that corresponds to each module that the player can download, transfer to their phone, and INTEGRATE the lessons directly into the central nervous system. 
The guided visualizations have the potential to DO THE WORK OF INTEGRATION FOR THE PLAYER so the player doesn’t have to consciously remember the lessons or training. The power of the lessons shows up automatically in their sports performance….and success in life!
HERE’S WHAT WILL HAPPEN AND HOW IT WILL BENEFIT YOU
Typical Success Stories I have dealt with countless times:
A coach of a select baseball team contacted me about his son, a 13 year old undersized player who was in a confidence death spiral.  After going through the training, here's what the Dad reported just a few weeks later: 

“Doug had an outstanding spring and summer in baseball with you getting much of the credit for his new confidence. In fact he got picked up by a select baseball team from Bellingham to pitch for them during the playoffs.”
Scott Knight, Stanwood, WA

"With your program's help, I'm now having the best confidence and tackle whatever obstacles stand between me, and where I want to go." Justin Rhodes
“It has been going simply amazing for Spencer! He started high school baseball and summer ball as the youngest kid with all the skills, but had that “deer in headlights” look. We thought it would be hard for him to overcome…and now…WOW! So cool! He has Confidence and Belief!! Last night in a 9 inning game, he was put in with the bases loaded and he struck out the first 2 batters…top of the line up!! He’s only 16 and these guys were seniors and some community college players. Thanks for having your skills to bring to people!”
Gina Trautman, Brier WA
Varsity softball pitcher story:
HERE’S WHY IT WORKS
Instead of the tired old cliches kids hear like: “Face your fears” and “You’ve got to want it” and “Get your head in the game” and "baseball/softball is a game of mistakes so get used to it" etc.  

…this training is about going much deeper into the belief systems of these kids and transforming them at the cellular level.  

C. in the R.A.C.E. Formula is about Clearing out those belief programs that trigger the nervous system to create nervousness and tension, negative thinking, being too hard on themselves, anger and all the other ways you see kids self-destruct and self-sabotage their talent and skills in competition. 

Even worse, they bring it all home with them after the game making you and your family’s life miserable!

HERE’S HOW THE BASEBALL/SOFTBALL MENTAL TOUGHNESS TRAINING PROGRAM TRANSFORMS YOUTH PLAYERS:
MODULE 1 Beliefs, Potential, The Power Mind - How To Become Relentless (R in RACE formula)
Power Tool - The 3-Step Process To Transform Yourself From Where You Are Now To What You Want To Be...for sports or anything in life!
The deadliest problem youth players have is that they have been dealing with the issues mentioned above for a long time.... and all the advice they've been given by their coaches and mentors has NOT done a darn thing to make a difference. 

This crushes a player's spirit and motivation to do what it takes to succeed. In this module, players are given the keys to open the door to the transformation they must make at the level of the body's intelligence system. That's where the problems live and you must go there for any long-term change.

This module is absolutely life-changing and worth the price of the entire program by itself. 
MODULE 2 Decision, Declaration, Motivation - Ignite Your Internal Fire!
Power Tool - Awareness (A in RACE) Needed To Become Your Own Mental Coach
How to use the sequential power of intention, decisionand declaration to trigger your motivation mechanism, at will. 

Most players are severely programmed to ONLY feel confident (The Peak Performance State) AFTER they have a good performance... such as making a couple shots in a row.  

Every person who ever plays this sport knows you play more aggressively and shoot better when in that confident, peak performance state (PPS).  

This module teaches you that you control ALL of the variables to create the PPS BEFORE you have a good performance....thereby dramatically increasing the odds of better performance!
In this module, we begin the process of learning how to fully control and manipulate your state. Your state consists of your automatic thoughts and emotions. 

Ultimately, this leads to becoming fearless and courageous. We use stories of amazing athletes and the mental toughness trainer's own kids to illustrate the overall concept in the module: 
acceptance.
RESULTS LIKE THIS ARE WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT

““Hey, Its Hunter, and I looked at the tips on being mentally tough, and watched the video, and I made the Varsity Baseball Team! I am so excited and what yo said helped me out so much! You guys are great!”

"Craig, …attached are her stats. As you can see she is leading the team with the hitting.”

Her Confidence Is High and Steady"
"Maya was amazing, and even knocked out current collegiate players from Hawaii, Grand Canyon and Stanford. Her confidence is high and steady. Not sure what magic fairy dust you sprinkled on her... Needless to say, we are all very grateful. ."
MODULE 3 Confidence, Concentration, Focus - Gateway to the zone
Power Tools: Specific strategies to deal with nervousness and construct confidence from scratch.
In this module, we begin the process of learning how to fully control and manipulate your state. Your state consists of your automatic thoughts and emotions. 

Ultimately, this leads to becoming fearless and courageous. We use stories of amazing athletes and the mental toughness trainer's own kids to illustrate the overall concept in the module: 
acceptance.
MODULE 4 Training, Practice & Goal Setting - Learning To Love Discipline!
Power Tool: Discovering That Wins Come From Improving & Executing Skills. 
Youth athletes love to play their sport but don’t think of practice and training as much fun. Adults know that training is what makes champions. 
In the process of going from “I have to go to practice” to “I love practice almost as much as the games” the young athlete also learns to seek out challenges instead of shy away from them. 

The theme of this module is: Winners Win In Advance.
MODULE 5 Control Your Thoughts - Control Your Emotions!
Power Tools: Technique to eliminate destructive self-talk. Tactic to let go of mistakes and chokes.
How many times have you caught a young athlete speaking out loud with negative self talk and you called them out on it? And all that does is drive that negativity inward. You just don’t hear it anymore but, trust me, it continues….and now you don’t know what it is.  

Outward spoken negative self talk is a huge cry for help and most adults do nothing more than squash it and teach the kid to keep it inside where it festers and grows like a virus. 

In this module we start getting serious about Clearing (C in the RACE formula) out the mental baggage which is the SOURCE of the negativity. 
MODULE 6 Mental Practice, Visualization - A Lifetime Success Skill!
Power Tool: Guided exercise to maximize results and improve visualizing ability. 
As an adult, you know how powerful visualizing success is. BUT, you can talk until you are blue in the face to a kid to visualize their success in advance and it’s completely useless unless you do this:  

Convince them that spending the time and energy is WORTH IT to them!

Learning my specific techniques is actually the easy part for kids. Getting them to actually do it is the hard part. They just don’t see the benefits connection like they do with physical practice. To them, it’s too subtle or vague and so they may tell you what you want to hear when you talk about it, but do they really do it? Nope.  

I discovered through trial and error how to get the kids to make the connection to the benefits of a regular visualization practice and I deliver it directly to them in this module.  

Next, the way most people teach “visualization” or mental practice actually turns off about 30% of all athletes. Why? Because that is the % of people in the population who are not very visual!! They can’t do it the way standard sport psych teaches and so they quickly give up on it.  

I give them permission to do it THEIR way within some specific guidelines. Put those 2 ideas together and they will ACTUALLY DO IT!
MODULE 7 How To Be Fearless
Power Tool: Ninja mental trick to use during the game in clutch or pressure situations.
This module delivers quite possibly the most powerful transformation opportunity for young basketball players… that not only keeps them confident throughout the game, but goes with them for life.  

It alone is worth more than the entire training itself for the lifetime success beliefs instilled NOW as a youth athlete - through basketball - something they are highly interested in.

Get this…

FEAR is the #1 Interference to all performance potential. By far.  

Fear of failure is the #1 fear basketball players struggle with that tightens their body up and paralyzes them from utilizing their trained and natural talents.  

You are not going to hear the tired old cliche’s about “facing your fears” and “embrace your failures” etc. I tried using that early on in my career with limited success. Instead, I’ve developed a 2-step process to C. CLEAR out fears from an athlete’s subconscious belief system.

The core of this module: We go to the heart of fear of failure and fear of rejection in this module and we destroy it! That’s the E. Emotional Mastery in the R.A.C.E. formula. 

MODULE 8 Winning, Determination & Heart
Power Tool: 3 inspirational athlete stories to assist your kids to find their fire!
The sports world is filled with success from players who weren’t as talented as others, smaller than others, regularly overlooked by coaches, and otherwise went from being the underdog to the superstar.   

Every player has the ability to perform far better than even they think they can.

The player discovers the key to making this happen and the true value of the game of baseball/softball - loving the journey itself and the working hard toward a goal.   

***The player also learns in this module that you don’t win more and play better by TRYING to do so. ** 

Much has been written about The “Flow” state. It is simply where there is no interference to a player’s performance potential - Where the player is simply executing what they know and have trained to do. 

Basketball players play a unique sport where it is much easier to slip into “The Flow” due to basketball being fast-moving and dynamic. This module delivers specific strategies to do this on command after having cleared their interference. 

Performance = Potential - Interference [graphic]

The young basketball player also finishes integrating this most powerful concept through the videos in this module: 

Winners Win In Advance

HERE’S THE REAL MAGIC THAT GETS IT DONE:
8 "DONE-FOR-YOU" GUIDED VISUALIZATIONS THAT REPROGRAM A PLAYER'S NERVOUS SYSTEM TO TRIGGER THE PEAK PERFORMANCE STATE AT GAME TIME.
And lastly, but most importantly, the piece d’resistance….there are 8 Guided Visualization sessions in the training. One for each module. This is what I meant by I do most of the work for you!

The reason why everything you’ve done to try to help your player have consistent confidence hasn’t worked is this:  

You must integrate new learning into the control mechanism of the nervous system!

Most coaches and sports parents do not understand this integration piece of the puzzle and I don’t blame them. It took me years of working with these kids to figure it out myself.

All athletes do this for physical skills naturally, through repetition of physical movements, right? Drills, practice and reps.  

That’s how you go from learning a new skill such as a proper shooting technique, to having it actually show up automatically in competition, without thinking! Everyone knows this for the physical game. 

But nobody does this for the mental game like I do in this program. 

In short, the key to automatic performance is: 

                                                                          INTEGRATION

                           The Guided Visualizations integrate head knowledge into the body.

In these guided visualizations, I’ve covered everything I run into in working with countless youth athletes. Your player can download these .mp3 files and put them on their phone and use them anywhere. That makes it very convenient for them to get their mental reps in JUST LIKE PHYSICAL TRAINING…and you already know the value of reps, don’t you? 

The perfect antidotes to these kids performance interference patterns are built in. They just plug in and let me guide their inner mind from my experience and expertise in solving their typical negative thinking and performance anxiety problems just like I’ve done hundreds and hundreds of times before. 

It can’t get any easier for them!

They are going to come out of this programmed to be R. Relentless.

They are going to have the knowledge and A. Awareness to be their own mental toughness coach whenever they run into difficulties and adversities in their sport…

They are going to C. Clear their mental baggage, and 

They are going to have E. Emotional Mastery through the process. 

…for the game and for ALL ASPECTS of their LIFE! Relationships, Academics, Future Career, and Deep Personal Self-esteem. 
 WHO IS CRAIG SIGL, 
THE MENTAL TOUGHNESS TRAINER?
When I started working with youth athletes back in 2004, I had no idea how the youth sports world had changed since I was a kid. I got a crash course in year-round sports, travel teams, kids afraid to lose their friends if they don’t make teams, the global competition and resulting pressure for college scholarships, coaches pressuring kids not to play for anyone else, etc.  

The more I got inside these kids heads, the more I discovered the inner destruction that was really going on that they are afraid to tell anyone. Believe me, if you hear some negativity or see expressions of emotions in youth athletes, trust me, it’s 10x worse inside them than what you hear/see. 

I seemed to have a connection with these kids from my own difficult experiences as an undersized athlete myself. When I was a kid, I was picked on, bullied, and felt left out quite often. I could easily relate to them and discovered how to talk to kids as young as 7 years old who were struggling and then things took off as parents began telling their friends and teammates about their successes with our work together.    
Flash forward a few years and my work started getting noticed by various media: The Seattle Post Intelligencer newspaper, NBC’s Evening Magazine show, numerous radio shows, blogs and youth sports organizations and then I fully embraced the title of Mental Toughness trainer for youth athletes.  

I have also worked with many adult athletes as well and in that process, really noticed the difference in how I assisted them vs. the kids

Here’s the kicker….I realized through working with hundreds of adults how their difficulties were almost always traced back to struggles they had as kids! I thought to myself, “What if I can prevent kids from forming these destructive beliefs and patterns using something they are highly motivated to work on: their sport?”

My mission was born and continues to this day. 


 "OK, SO WHAT'S THE COST?"
Listen, I was charging $200 an hour for years in working with youth athletes and very few people ever balked at my rates when we talked. Baseball/Softball parents are dropping hundreds, even thousands on travel tournaments, showcases, camps, instructors, etc. I mean, a decent bat alone is going for 4x more than the investment in this program!!  

This program is the culmination of years of trial and error, over $100,000.00 worth of investing in my own training, and about a year of my time to put it together in an online format. I have been told that I should price it at least half of what parents have paid for working with me in the past, $400. Today, I charge $500 an hour if you want to work with me and I’m very selective about whom I will work with at that. 

BUT, I am more interested in reaching as many people as possible with this program…average families who truly can’t afford much and so you have a very unique opportunity right now to take advantage of my proven, very powerful system for US $149.

You know how much you spend on equipment, travel, tournament fees, etc. You've probably paid more than that for just a bat or a glove or cleats, right?   

Really, this is a no-brainer unless you haven’t read the rest of this page.
$149 USD
WHY DO THIS TRAINING NOW?
Because your child forming a belief system and mindset for life, through Baseball/Softball, is urgent!

 …and from my experience, parents need a nudge to really get that.   

Through their desire to perform better in their sport is the only way you are going to get your kids to work on their mental game.

What if they quit sports in the near future?
Your window is closing fast to have an influence on your child’s ability to create success for him/herself.

You need to understand something… people have an amazing ability to cope with problems they haven’t been able to resolve. Most of us do get through our childhood and teen years reasonably ok while carrying around emotional scars and destructive beliefs into adulthood, that’s true.  

But think of all the negative stuff you carry around in your mind right now and ask yourself how your life might have been so much better without it, huh? Don’t be in denial thinking your kid is doing “just fine.”  

And besides, don’t you remember that time when your kid came home from practice or a game and was just beaming from ear to ear and talking non-stop in happiness about how he/she played that day or how they made the team or got praise from the coach, etc.  

Why would you wait to give them MORE of those moments? Jump on this now, even if it’s not the best time for your kid to go through the training because of other time obligations. You have access to it for life.
