Coach McGannon does all mental strength sessions.  It is not lost on me in these uncharted times that this service can provide a sense of stability and perspective for the kids

Effective for all sports.  Coach McGannon has worked with players from the following sports:  basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, football, golf, volleyball, track, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, figure skating, gymnastics.



“The mental strength really helped!  She went 10 for 14 at the plate in the tournament including a home run, triple and 2 doubles.  The strike outs did not keep her down.” 

“I am not certain what you spoke about but I wanted to tell you what an impact you have made on her in a short period of time. I have seen a positive shift already.  There is so much negative in the world right now, so this was both a positive and effective turn for the better.  Basics is a blessing to my kid at time she really needed it.   Thank you.”

“Coach we are deeply grateful Basics also addresses the mental side of the game.   He has always been the best technical player, but is so hard on himself.  He gets in his own way all the time.  The hour he spent with you really opened his eyes.  His confidence level is much higher now.  How he thinks AFFECTS how he plays.  THANK YOU!!” 


“We are so glad you spoke with him. It is a huge help to us as parents. When you addressed setbacks and adversity, this was EXACTLY what he needed to hear.  Kids nowadays are used to instant gratification at a cost to their well being.   This service is a powerful tool to help these youngsters learn and thrive.”

Players and programs will take an assessment that measures strengths and weaknesses in the following categories:
  1. Confidence
  2. Failure/Success
  3. Commitment
  4. Attitude


Coach McGannon and the player will then connect via Zoom or Face Time.  Then an honest discussion/dialogue begins.  Players and teams must know their is NO JUDGEMENT in this analysis, but a clear eyed understanding of how and why players think poorly in any number of competitive situations.

Mental Strength training principles and actual TOOLS for handling weaknesses in EACH CATEGORY will be shared.

EXAMPLE:  Players who score low in handing failure or poor play often struggle with getting past these failures quickly and effectively.  This inability to handle poor play often affects their play going forward, even in the SAME GAME or competition.    Basics Mental Strength Training will provide tools to help these players/programs in situations like this, and many others.
