Offering a Winning Mind elective for your camp is easy!

In deciding whether to offer Winning Mind training as an elective for your camp, know that there is no cost to you-but you need to understand and integrate this exciting elective within your camp curriculum. We provide the personnel and equipment. Then you work with Winning Mind to custom tailor the best option for your campers in one of several Elective Formats:

Elective A:
A short-term elective for 8 to 12 players, offered within a portion of your camp week or a day before or after your regular camp. This option includes an online player assessment done at Winning Mind's site, an initial phone session, an in-person performance review and mental coaching session.

Elective B:
A week-long option for large groups of individuals (from 12 to 18 players) or teams, held concurrently within your camp or in a separate week sandwiched between two camp weeks. For teams, this option includes two team sessions, free testing for the coach, along with the individual sessions described above.

Elective C:
An independent-study elective conducted by Winning Mind outside your camp, promoted by you as an affiliated opportunity offered through your camp. This option includes online assessment and phone session (in-person coaching optional, depending on numbers) separately with Winning Mind.

Elective D:
A completely custom-designed elective
to suit your particular needs

Your commission, as well as expenses, room, and board for Winning Mind personnel can be negotiated for all formats. The cost of the Winning Mind program is significant, but affordable for players and parents willing to make a reasonable investment to see real rewards. Most interested players are typically over 13 years of age with a technical ability to play at higher levels. Winning Mind Guarantee for non-team Electives A and B: In the event that a player is not satisfied with a Winning Mind service, payment will be returned to the camp for refund to the individual.
