During my high school career I was constantly pushing myself to be the best in every sport and event I did. This led me to being a 4- time varsity letter winner in track and field and cross country and a 3-time letter winner in swimming. In all of my sports, I was voted to the position of team captain during my senior year. I went on to the track and field state championships after having won 3 medals at the district meet my senior year. I also received a district medal in swimming as well.

In college, I became a 4-time letter winner in cross country and track and field. I won the Coaches Award in both 2013 and 2016 which had never been done by any athlete in Misericordia University history. The Coaches Award is given to an athlete who goes beyond the physical aspects of their own improvement and reaches out to their teammates to help them develop beyond their perceived expectations. I was also a multiple time Middle Atlantic Conference qualifier and medalist in the 400 meter hurdles, 4x100, 4x200, 4x400 and distance medley relays. I was also a multiple time Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) qualifier. I am also ranked in the top 10 400 meter hurdlers to ever compete for Misericordia University.

I continue to run and compete today, albeit not as much as I used to. I've come to enjoy doing various sports including softball, soccer and the triathlon.

Our first session together will be spent getting to know one another to determine if the fit between yourself and my coaching philosophy makes sense. I will layout the groundwork for future mental performance coaching sessions and we will discuss your goals and aspirations as an athlete. I will offer a resource for you to take home regardless of whether you intend on meeting with me again as I am a firm believer that Mental Performance Coaching should be done practically, just like strength, conditioning or strategic coaching.

One thing to make abundantly clear is that I am not a therapist. I am not going to try and break down your family history or use psychoanalysis to try and help you. What I am going to do is use scientifically tested methods of helping improve your mental performance so you can push yourself to be the best version of you possible.

Client Reviews

Carl combines his knowledge and experience from coaching athletes in both esports and traditional sports to give relevant information on optimizing practice, self awareness and mentality.
Throughout my running career, I've always struggled with keeping focus on the races that I run. I couldn’t figure out why I got so nervous and why it was effecting my running. Carl has helped tremendously. Whether it was the different drills he taught us to use or just being there to talk and give us guidance on which way to go, I knew I could count on his help. Mentally, I believe that Carl's program has truly helped me become more focused on the positive sides of running and less on the negative and the nerves that come along with that. When I get on the line now, I am more focused on what I can control and less focused on what I can’t.
I've run competitively throughout high school and at the Division III level collegiality and I have always struggled with race-day anxiety. I would get to the point where races felt like they were happening to me, instead of me running the races. When I met with Carl, he listened and I could tell he truly understood as an athlete himself. Carl taught me breathing exercises to stay focused and keep perspective on race-day and I use them every single time I toe the line now. I feel more in control, I have gotten better results and most importantly, I enjoy racing much more after receiving Carl's help.
In 7th grade, I decided to join a sport that would ultimately have a bigger impact on my life for years to come than I thought possible. I chose to run- a sport in its pure essence, at is very face value, seems simple enough. I soon discovered that was far from the case; I faced many many ups and downs, literally and mentally, in my 10 years of competitive running that would follow. However, I am beyond thankful and lucky to have had Carl Daubert by my side from the very first day of of cross country practice that faithful day in 7th grade. Throughout my high school and collegiate careers, I learned to lean on Carl before, during and after meets as he was someone I could turn to no matter if I had the worst or best race of my life. He taught me how to believe in myself and my abilities and how every race and practice served a purpose, acted as a lesson. Carl assisted me in my journey to lay the foundation of becoming a mentally strong athlete, which I truly believe is one of the main reasons to enable my future physical/athletic successes. I am forever grateful to my relationship with Carl- both as a teammate and friend on and off the track for he has been an enormous positive influence in my life in every aspect.
