The Playmaker's Advantage: How to Raise Your Mental Game to the Next Level
Bargain Book Copy
Discover how to improve your mental game, the next frontier in sports training, to become the Playmaker, no matter your age or experience.
Coaches search for it. Parents dream of it. Fans love it. Athletes want it.
The playmaker on any sports team possesses it: an elusive, intangible quality combining anticipation, perception, and decision-making skills. This quality raises their game above the competition and allows them to pass when no one else can, anticipate the movement of opponents, avoid costly mental mistakes, and ultimately, hold the team together.
Now, for the first time, top level coaches and trainers reveal their best practices and the cognitive science research that unlock the secrets of the playmaker's keen sense of awareness. Just as tests of speed, strength, and agility have provided a baseline of physiological biomarkers, coaches can now capture cognitive metrics including attention, pattern recognition, anticipation, and the ability to take quick, decisive action during the chaos of competition.
Combining sports psychology with sports science, athletes of all ages, including youth, high school, college and professional, can learn to train their brain under pressure.
The Playmaker's Advantage is a groundbreaking book that will educate developing, young athletes, along with their parents and coaches, about this essential creative capability in an accessible, easy to understand method.
