Compete Like a Champion


May 18, 2020

Dr. Peter Scales joins the team for round two to discuss how to apply mental training to the court. The discussion goes into the importance of loving the game and how to "lose the self". Dr. L, Coach Johnny and Dr. Scales then detail practical ways to apply mental skills on-court as well as teaching methods. Dr. Scales shares his self-discovery approach and how to engage players in the Compete-Learn-Honor method.
