More About Coach Dan

My name is Coach Dan and I am a Mental Skills coach.

As a Mental Skills coach, I help others optimize performance strategies through mental areas of the game.

This includes but is not limited to:

*Mindfulness
*Emotional Control
*Goal setting
*Imagery
*Confidence

I’ve worked with tennis and basketball players through my Masters degree training, however I am available to work with all performers. I protect confidentiality and take a person-centered approach to coaching. Sessions are individualized to the needs of the particular performer or team.

As an athlete I grew up playing basketball through the HS Varsity level and have coached basketball ever since! Currently I am a Varsity boys basketball coach and a 1on1 skill development coach and my Master's level training in Sport Psychology has provided me with the tools and experience to help athletes train mentally. This includes meditation; imagery; team building; mindfulness training; creating pre-performance routines.

A typical mental skills training session is approximately 55 minutes in length and is individualized to meet the specific needs of that athlete. We use a portion of the session to reflect on their sport experience and then work through particular mental skills that can help their practice or game performance. At session’s end we check back for takeaways. Team sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of the group.

Hope I get to work with him again

Coach Dan has been working with my son and another middle school boy in one on two sessions. He has the boys' complete attention and they are engaged and having fun while working at a high level. The sessions have a great flow, with Coach Dan adapting and thinking on his feet to fit the situation and maximizing the session. Time with Coach Dan is time very well spent!

Love the way Dan give encouragement to my son Joseph who was able to stay focus the whole session

Great with my 11yo!

In this one introductory session Coach Dan significantly raised my son’s understanding of technique and his self confidence. After the session, my son enthusiastically asked for additional sessions with Coach Dan. I was floored to hear him say that! Clearly, Coach Dan inspired him. We’ll be back for more.

What a great session! Our 14 year old actually told us all about it after, and he's usually pretty reserved! :) Great skill development!! Can't wait for more sessions!

Solid first lesson. Coach Dan was prompt, professional and knowledgeable. He has a great demeanor and is very engaging.

My 13 yo son enjoyed the workout and left feeling confident and more aware of strengths and areas of improvement. I really liked how Coach Dan was patient and positive with my son. He used lots of reflective listening and strength based comments. My son responded well to that technique. We will be using him again for sure.

Definitely top notch. I would recommend Coach Dan. He was patient with the young athletes, offered detailed and individual feedback.

Coach Dan is a fantastic coach for my 10-year old son. We only had our introductory lesson, but I can tell that if he worked with Coach Dan for even just a few months he would be a completely different player - levels above where he is now. Coach Dan has great energy and is very clear and detailed with his instructions and feedback. He is also very encouraging and kept my son focused on important aspects of the drills. Coach Dan was also really accommodating when we had to rearrange the lesson a couple times due to illness and weather. I look forward to seeing my son’s game grow with future sessions.

I liked Dan a lot. It was a challenging workout, and definitely made me better.

It was so great. Coach Dan totally exceeded my expectations.

I let coach Dan know ahead of time we were looking for recurrent sessions, and yet he notified us he couldn't commit after just one lesson. I wouldn't have scheduled a lesson with coach Dan if I knew he was overbooked ahead of time. He is a good coach, so still giving 3 points for content.

Awesome coach, gave me a great work out even though I was massively out of shape. He staggered the drills so I could catch my breath and still get a good work out.

My son had a great first session with Coach Dan and immediately wanted to continue to work with him!

Dan was great for my 14-year old son. He helped him focus, build his basketball skills, and set concrete goals. He was patient, honest, and ready to help!

Dan was a really fun coach to work with. He quickly assessed my skill level and pushed me outside of my comfort zone to work on skills that I wouldn't normally work on. Overall, I really enjoyed our session.

My son had a great session with Coach Dan and was excited to work with him again!

Great first session! Encouraging & effective use of time. "Mom, that was really good, we got a lot of things in for just one hour!" (direct quote by my 16-year old while in the car driving back home)

My 11-year-old son loves working with Coach Dan. By helping him master basketball fundamentals, Coach Dan helps my son increase his confidence (and fun) in his youth leagues. Highly recommended.

Coach Dan is awesome. My 8 year old son said he really enjoyed his practice tonight and is now very motivated after one class !

My son immediately bonded with Coach Dan. In my 12 year old's words: "Dan is fun, works me hard, explains things well and he's great!" I feel so lucky to have found such a great coach who brings so much to the table. He present great drills, quickly understood my son, had a fabulous attitude and fully engaged for the entire session.

Coach Dan is an amazing mental skills coach! We worked on many aspects of my tennis game such as routines, dealing with nerves, recovery steps, preparation, and much more. Each time I met with him, my knowledge of how to deal with critical situations and overall confidence in my tennis game vastly improved. When I began implementing these strategies into my tennis game, I started to win even more matches than I had before. I began to believe in my game which helped me stay more relaxed during matches. Coach Dan is always positive and encourages me to believe in my abilities. He explains each scenario and solution so vividly, I am able to imagine these situations in my head. Working with Coach Dan is still one of the most useful things that I’ve done to improve my metal game.
