The CEP System
At CEP, our purpose is to help your team achieve Consistent Elite Performance.
In order to do that, you need to go Beyond the X’s & O’s so your team can develop the right mindset & a winning culture.
The problem is, like most teams, your athletes struggle with their confidence, resilience and leadership skills.
This can be frustrating & discouraging because you want to develop your players’ mindsets, but the majority of content online perpetuates fluffy & cookie-cutter strategies that don’t work.
That is why the CEP Team Programs jump straight to personalized & practical strategies that deliver repeatable and reliable results.
Teams can choose one or a combination of the below options to develop the right mindset and a winning culture:
When you join our programs, your team will stop struggling with their mindset and start achieving Consistent Elite Performance.
These interactive workshops will be tailored to meet the needs of your team.
Athletes learn how to think differently about the mental game and how to build the 4 fundamental strategies of the CEP Mindset System. They will also kick start their alter ego and reset routine strategies.
The 4 Fundamental Strategies:
- Alter Ego – This strategy is at the core of the 4 fundamental strategies. It helps athletes define & contrast their best mindset that is in the Zone from their worst mindset – being in their own head.
- Reset Routine – One of the most impactful strategies utilized during practices and games to clear their mind & activate their best self Alter Ego.
- Personal Scorecard – Mostly athletes beat themselves up and have an ineffective reflection process. To counter this limitation, this strategy is used after practices and games to improve self-awareness and ensure consistent growth.
- Mental Preparation – The final of the 4 fundamental strategies helps athletes set clear intentions & ensure they show up as their best self.
These later 3 strategies create a continuous Prepare-Play-Reflect Process that maximizes the athletes ability to show up as their best self.
- Clear any mental blocks around confidence, resilience, and overthinking.
- Finish and personalize alter ego and reset routines.
- Start developing personal scorecards.
- Clear any mental blocks around the fear of failure.
- Learn how to overcome adversity & build momentum.
- Complete mental tools assessment – including what mental ‘junk’ they need to limit.
- Clear any mental blocks around performance anxiety and pressure.
- Finish coping planning and imagery script strategies.
- Ensure game day routines are leading to peak performance and not mental fatigue.
For youth sport teams, we provide parents a short video series & PDF summary on the 7 steps to support their child’s mental game.
Or for an additional cost you can book a 1 hour interactive workshop with the parents.
When it comes to sports, parents have the ability to either help or hinder their child’s mental game.
Here are the 7 Biggest Mistakes Parents make in Youth Sport:
- Lose Sight of Why
It can be easy to disconnect from your why. If you can stay connected to what you really want for your child out of the sporting experience (i.e., life skills, growth, and enjoyment), then supporting their mental game comes a lot easier.
- Screw Up the Car Ride Home
Ask your child how and when they want to have post- practice and game reflections. When reflecting, the child should speak first and the most.
- Shoulds and Expectations
Your child is the one playing, so they need to take ownership of their game plan and how they mentally prepare to play at their best. Don’t project your expectations onto them.
- Not Managing Your Emotions
If you want your child to go out there and be relaxed, yet focused and having fun, then be a role model and have the right mindset yourself. You can use the Alter Ego exercise for yourself.
- Blaming Coaches
There has been a pretty big buildup of tension between coaches and parents, but we are all on the same team here and all want what’s best for the kids and the team.
- Tolerating a Toxic Culture
The bottom line is, as a youth sport parent, you are part of the team and you contribute to the culture of the team. The question is: Are you helping or hurting the culture?
- Neglecting Mental Skills
If you want to help your kid with the mental game, then you need to encourage it, highlight why it is important, and understand the nuances of it.
CEP 1-on-1 Coaching for Athletes
1-on-1 sessions are the best way to get quick and effective results.
This type of coaching is not for everyone – it is best suited for elite athletes that are committed to winning the mental game and performing at their best when it matters most.
Our 1-on-1 programs usually start at a minimum of 8 hours – you can read more about these program HERE.
However, when an athlete is part of a team 4 part workshop, then they can do a special 4 hour rack rate.
These packages can be purchased by the team or the individual athletes.
The most important person to lead is yourself.
Before helping the team go beyond the X’s & O’s, the coaching staff should first invest in their own mental performance.
The coaching sessions are 1-on-1 or with the entire coaching staff. These sessions are used to help the coaches apply the 4 fundamental mental performance strategies themselves. As well, they help ensure we don’t just work on the athletes’ mindsets and ‘provide the fish’, but also teach the the coaching staff ‘how to fish’.
Here are the 3 additional features:
A personalized online reflection log (weekly or bi-weekly) for your athletes to fill out. The automated report allows you to keep a steady pulse of the team’s mindset, proactively catch issues and continuously improve the team culture.
Athletes and coaches will better understand themselves & each other. Each athlete should lean into their natural strengths to develop as a leader within the team dynamic. This tool helps optimize team communication, cohesion & accountability.
Individual Athlete DISC Reports
Each athlete receives their report and a video debrief – this helps them embrace their own communication and behavioural styles as well as come to understand their teammates strengths, and ultimately learn the keys to effectively connect and build a cohesive team.
Team DISC Report & Debrief
The coaching staff reviews the team report with a CEP Coach – this helps the coaches map out the unique strengths of each athlete to help empower more leadership within the team dynamic & put each athlete in the best position to have success individually & collectively – in other words it ensures they help get each athlete on ‘the right seat on the bus’. Here is an example of what the Team DISC Report looks like:
