and soul are central to every dimension of life, including soccer. Therefore, we are pleased to introduce you to our sponsor--The Winning Mind--in the words of Horst Richardson, head coach, Colorado College:

"The presence of Winning Mind and Marc Sagal during our pre-season camp emerged as a key ingredient to making the play-offs.  Marc, who is a talented soccer player himself, knows all aspects of the game well. He assisted us in identifying mental strengths and weaknesses, building team spirit and developing a healthy chemistry to maximize our success on the field.  Our players felt comfortable talking with him and subsequently more confident in assuming their various roles in our team efforts. He knows what makes players tick and significantly enhanced their performances on the field."
