It's all about your athlete and her team performing their best when it matters most, isn't it? 

Well the hard truth is if you and your team aren't investing in the mental side of their game playing their best when it matters most likely isn't going to happen often or at all. 

John Kelly's Softball Smarts team training will give your team the specific tools they need to reach their fullest game day softball potential on a consistent basis.
