Practical Programs


As a former collegiate head coach, Coach Jones has always understood the importance of mental training but, like so many other leaders, didn't always find the time to make it a priority.  Utilizing the experience of running practices, training athletes, leading a staff and peers, and preparing for competition, SSB Programs are built with a clear understanding of the everyday challenge to fit everything into the time we have with our teams.  Our programs can help you make mental training a manageable priority.


Ask champions what separates average and excellent, and they will tell you the difference is a mental edge!  SSB Performance can help you and your team by managing your mental performance program.  Save time, have a set plan, and make a commitment to up your game without extra work!   From in-practice training to group sessions and workshops for your athletes and staff, we will implement innovative solutions integrating a program that fits your schedule.  Our focus is always on building efficient and results-driven programs that will increase the well-being and performance of your team.
