More About Coach Scott

I’m a behavior analyst dedicated to helping young athletes improve their cognitive behavior. In short, I help them think better so they can perform better. I have been very purposeful with my education to ensure I encompass breadth as well as depth. The highlights of my education include:

Undergraduate, Augustana College
-Major in Education and Physical Science

Graduate, Baker College
-Master of Business Education, Emphasis in Organizational Behavior

Post-Graduate Studies, Virginia Commonwealth University
-Group Dynamics
-Process Consultation

Post-Graduate Studies, Independent (Supervised)
-Emotional Intelligence
-Performance Psychology
-Neuroscience

Post-Graduate Studies, University of Pennsylvania
-Positive Psychology

Post-Graduate Certificate, Clemson University
-Behavior Analysis

I like to emphasize my most recent accomplishment with Clemson University. Behavior Analysis (a school of psychology) is a discipline that has been around for some time, however it has been gaining traction with many athletic teams as it focuses on operant behavior, reinforcement, and mindfulness acceptance. Other key factors include self-talk, private events, and self-management: areas that are significant when coaching mental skills.

Looking back on my middle/high school days, I recall struggling mentally and can certainly relate to young athletes and performers who battle mental roadblocks. As a father of athletes, I’ve seen too many players neglected when it comes to overcoming cerebral hurdles. After working with me you will have improved your focus, minimized distractions, learn to recover from frustrations, and develop action plans.

I have been coaching/counseling middle/high school students in youth groups for over 10 years. Over the past 5 years, I have worked with several local high school teams including Varsity Softball and Varsity Cross Country; I have also coached individuals and teams from travel Volleyball; and have conducted one-on-one training for Varsity Cross-Country and Varsity Swimming athletes.

As a high-school athlete, I ran track, played basketball, and was a member of the weightlifting team. In college, I played intramural football and softball. I trained with the United States Marine Corps in Quantico in ’89 where I learned the essence of mind over matter. I currently enjoy rock climbing, biking, jogging, weight-training, and swimming. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, a Master of Business Administration with emphasis in Organization Behavior. I have completed post-graduate studies in multiple behavioral disciplines, and most recently earned a Post-Graduate Certificate in Behavior Analysis.

First consultation/session = $0

Online coaching = $45/session (5-10 sessions)

One-on-One = $75/session (8-12 lessons, some with parents)

Small Group = $75/person (3-6 athletes; 3 sessions)

Team = $200/session (3 sessions)

All sessions focus on performance psychology tactics, mindfulness acceptance, resilience, and personal thought control.

Client Reviews

Thanks again for all your effort and positive input to our swimmers and parents. You’ve already made an impact on us.
...he's very thorough, covers a lot of information in a short time. He's well organized and succinct, perfect for my large team. We'll be having Scott back for the winter season!
Scott has a unique outlook for this program. He combines academics, personal experiences, and humor to deliver a well-balanced coaching session. After three sessions, my daughter showed remarkable improvement. I highly recommend Scott and MP4P.
