Coach Jen Rizzotti

George Washington University

Head Coach, Basketball

We've been fortunate to recruit some really talented players to GW [George Washington] during our time here and we decided to work with Bryan because we knew we needed to start developing a method to train our minds and not just our bodies. The best thing he could have said when we started was that some of the best athletes in the world use imagery and visualization in their training and credit those tools for them being elite. I loved how he tailored the sessions to our needs: creating personalized visualizations for our players and providing relatable scenarios for our team to engage with. I certainly recommend Bryan to any team looking to raise their level of performance. We got a lot out of our sessions and look forward to implementing his methods as we continue through the season.

Justin Reece

Captain, Aviation, U.S. Army

I knew I was getting ready for one of, if not the hardest, physical/mental challenges in my life thus far.

I was going to an assessment with as little information as you could possibly imagine. I knew I needed help in 3 areas.

Comfortable being uncomfortable - on multiple occasions, I found myself in positions where it would be easy to get flustered, but because of the work we did preparing for uncertain times, I was able to thrive in those moments.

Performing under pressure - we worked on visualizing the result and then going in reverse to identify what actions, feelings, and beliefs and thoughts were most likely to produce that result. When I struggled, my beliefs didn’t change.

I also learned not to tie my self-esteem or self-worth to my performance. My mindset was ‘pressure was a privilege’.

Trust my process - On many occasions, it would’ve been easy to compare myself to others at assessment. But we worked on how to remove negative self-talk, reset my mind, and focus on running my own race.

Your coaching got me over my fears of failure, and I thrived in an extremely challenging environment. I cannot say enough good things about it.

Coach Rob Sheppard

Seton Hall University

Head Coach, Baseball

The lessons our players learned from Dr. Price have had an immediate impact on our team.  Dr. Price has armed our student-athletes with the tools necessary to handle the daily challenges they face both on the field and in the classroom. Dr. Price provided them with the mental and visual strategies that will allow them to perform with confidence.

Coach Natalie Desjardins

Seton Hall University

Head Coach, Women's Golf

As a coach I hold my players to a high standard of excellence on and off the golf course. It is important as coaches that we continue to educate ourselves in order to provide the best possible experience for our players. In the short amount of time that I’ve been working with Dr. Price, I’ve noticed a change in my coaching strategies and my performance on and off the golf course. Goal setting, visualization and mental toughness is just as important for coaches as it is for our athletes. The tools that Dr. Price provides to my team helps them achieve new heights and it has forced me to continue to educate myself. Our one on one sessions have provided me with new insights about my coaching style and myself as a person. Dr. Price cares about the coaches and the players success, I am thankful to have him part of our team and I am looking forward to continuing our relationship for years to come!

Coach Jay Price

Manasquan High School, NJ

Head Coach, Football

 

As coaches we all dream of the student athlete who has it all – strength, speed, instincts and is a performer in the classroom as well as on the field. To that end we exhaust ourselves trying to give our athletes every advantage in becoming the best they can be. Programs nationwide work to offer programs, trainers, and tutors to achieve success in assisting young athletes become better. But what if we could provide one tool that could help them in all of these areas? Enter Top Mental Game. Using Dr. Price’s techniques, our athletes were taught the values of goal setting, visualization and imagery, and how to achieve optimal performance. Our team was quite young headed into this season. Dr Price helped them gain confidence on the field and in the classroom. The results have been outstanding. Whether you’re a coach looking to provide his/her team with an edge, or an athlete trying to gain confidence in your game – on or off the field – Top Mental Game offers what personal trainers, coaches and tutors do not. We look forward to our continued partnership with Top Mental Game. 

Coach Steve Jakubowski

West Deptford High School, NJ

Head Coach, Soccer

Bryan Price is a passionate and energetic individual who is skilled in his craft of teaching people of all ages the importance of a strong mindset. He instills confidence and an eagerness to believe in one self in all of his followers, whether they be student-athletes, coaches, military officials, business-place professionals, etc. His delivery methods and ability to relate to people by using real-life examples is second to none.

Coach Tim Janes

Goalkeepers Coach, Soccer

The goalkeeping position in soccer is one that requires confidence, mental toughness, and leadership skills. Goalkeepers are subject to an intense spotlight every single play they make, and they often are blamed (or blame themselves) for goals. This is why goalkeepers NEED sports psychology training that gives them the tools and techniques to be on top of their mental game - making them better prepared to take over the game and lead others to victory from the back line. Enter Bryan Price - a charismatic, experienced leader, whose mental techniques are tried and proven to increase performance, boost confidence, and foster success. If you or your child are in need of a coach that wants to walk alongside you on your confidence-building and goal accomplishing journey, look no further!

Brynn Holohan

Arizona State University, Northbrook, IL

I have worked with Bryan for the past 3 months and I cannot begin to describe how much he has helped me. I have always struggled with confidence and anxiety in my life and in sports, and Bryan changed that. Each exercise we did, and each time we met made me drastically better.

This change was large enough for my coaches to take note of my improved confidence and how it greatly changed my performance on the field. I have never done anything in my career that has benefitted me so much. Training your mind is so important and I can’t thank Bryan enough for all he has done for me! He’s an amazing coach and even better person to help elevate your game.

I have been playing competitive golf now for 8 years and within just a few sessions Dr. Price gave me a whole different outlook on the game. He has given me various mental strategies such as visualization, positive self-talk, and relaxation techniques that have helped me overcome many obstacles in my daily life and on the golf course. Working with Dr. Price has helped my play and mindset tremendously.

I started getting into a slump mid-season. I wasn’t playing as much, and when I did, I wasn’t playing very well. I had one of the worst games I’d ever played and called my mom and asked her to find me someone I could work with on my mental game. She immediately recommended Bryan, and I started working with him the very next week.

My mentality changed drastically. I used to be someone who got caught up in my own mistakes, but Bryan taught ways to relax myself and focus on the next play rather than the past. I saw improvements right away and he ended up turning my whole season around. His visualizations helped me get out of my own head and keep my focus in the game. This allows me to play every game, shift by shift, and build momentum for myself.

I would recommend this to all hockey players, I wish I had started before I noticed my issues. It honestly changed my entire hockey path. Without it, I don’t know where I’d be, but I wouldn’t be having the success I’m having7 now without it. I can’t thank Top Mental Game enough for helping me achieve my goals, and beyond.

Giye Jenkins

University of New Haven, West Orange, NJ

 

I wanted to go through the full season before reacting to the training you did for
us to really see if the things you were
teaching us would work, and I’m happy to say they did.


The thing that worked best for me was
the visualization exercises that you taught us.
The two interceptions that I caught this year, I had imagined how, where, and when they would happen the night before, both times.


My mental game is at a different level and it is because of your training.”

Lauren Rios

Top Mental Game… the name of the program and the way I think about my golf mentality now. After learning from Bryan various visualizations, techniques, and metaphors, I really felt my mental game develop and mature to a level to match my physical golf skills. The idea of developing my mental game was always in mind, but I didn’t know what it took to achieve an effective mindset before Bryan’s help. Now I can apply these techniques to play under pressure and calm my nerves. In my first high school tournament of the 2019 fall season, I shot a new personal best of 69…could not have done it without the right mindset! #mindsetmatters 

Holt Oliphant

I've worked with Bryan for the past 6 months and it has made such a difference in both my mindset and performance. His visualization exercises have made it so I'm always ready for when the puck drops. Not only that but, his other lessons, such as "controlling the controllables" and the importance of focusing on the process, not the results, has made me ready for whatever the game throws at me.

Junior hockey can be very stressful and chaotic but working with Bryan has helped me navigate through all of that and get my head in the right place. Working with Bryan has not only helped me on the ice but also in all aspects of life. I'm very thankful for having the opportunity to work with Bryan and I highly recommend Top Mental Game.

Callie O’Connell

Volleyball, Abilene, TX

My name is Callie O’Connell. I play volleyball as a setter and I started improving my mental game with Coach Bryan Price in March, 2020. Since then, I have overcome one of my greatest fears, which was being afraid to make a mistake. I know that no one is perfect, but I set for myself such a high standard that it was hard for me to just brush off a mistake. Whenever I would practice, I would be so tight and hesitant that I wouldn’t play to my full potential. Now, I don’t feel nervous or anxious before a match because I use recorded visualization exercises that Coach Price and I have made to help me feel calm and ready to go. I have really enjoyed working with Coach Price. He is an excellent coach and has helped me so much.

Tristan Mercado

Wrestling, Fort Leavenworth, KS

Throughout the 8 years of my wrestling career, I have never devoted any significant period of time to strengthening my mind. I put my body through the most strenuous of workouts to prepare myself for the mat. I put all my time and effort into drilling rep after rep until I mastered each movement, but every year, I always fell short of my goals.

No matter how hard I trained, I could never get consistent results. I would lose to people I should have pinned in the first period. It took me a long time to figure out what the problem was, and I kept getting more and more discouraged.

At the state tournament for wrestling during my junior year, I finally realized what was holding me back. It was my mindset. That’s what was keeping me from reaching my true potential. Over the summer of my junior-to-senior year, Dr. Price helped me begin to control my thoughts and emotions through visualization, self-talks, and various mental exercises. Both on and off the mat, I keep seeing how this training has positively affected my wrestling, and my life.

Top Mental Game has given me exactly the results I wanted, and I cannot be any more thankful for it!

Paige Wood

Golf, McKinney, TX

Oklahoma City University

I wanted to thank you for sharing your insights on different strategies I can use to improve my game. As much as I would like to say I shoot even par all the time, that wouldn’t require me to use many of the skills we discussed! But I can think of more than a few instances where I had to overcome adversity mid-round to finish strong. For example, I had a recent event where I had a terrible hole during the 1st round. In the past, I would have collapsed for the rest of the round. After using your strategies, I went out and shot the second lowest score of the tournament the next day. In another tournament, I had a terrible start - shooting 8 over on the front nine. But after applying your "waves" visualization technique, I was able to play the back nine with a clear mind and shot 3 under par. That’s an 11-shot swing in 9 holes! I have never had this kind of improvement from one nine to the next. Thanks for showing me the way! I even use your techniques in school when getting ready for tests. I really appreciate the work we did together.

Cole Foresman

Soccer, Shawnee, KS

When I was younger, my coach always told me ‘the best players always had the best mentality.’ Just look at Kobe - he was known for it. I always thought this just meant the desire to want to get better. I didn’t think that it meant being in the right state of mind.

I had never thought of working on my mental game. I always just thought it was something you picked up. When I heard about this training from my dad, I was hesitant to start it.

But I can tell you after doing this it was so worth it, and it’s made me a more consistent player and a better leader on the field.

If you’ve ever played a sport you understand that when you mess up it’s really hard to move on and restart, which usually makes you play worse and ruins your game.

But Coach Price has changed the way I have been able to respond to these mistakes and it has completely changed the way I have been playing.

If you are hesitant to start this program, take it from me. It will completely change the way you play your sport and it will make you a lot more consistent.

Jonathan Luders

Baseball, Lynnfield, MA

Seton Hall University

I began working with Dr. Price individually after he came and spoke to the Baseball team as a group. I was intrigued from his presentations and I wanted to get a more personalized version and learn more. Dr. Price has helped me set routines for my mental game. His visualization techniques before practices have been extremely useful to help direct my focus and intention at the task ahead. I’ve been as “in control” of what I can control, during my practices as I’ve ever been when implementing his techniques. I highly recommend Dr. Price. The visualization, relaxation, and breathing techniques he teaches can help not only for your sport but for your everyday life as well.

Jill Beglin

Golf, Carson City, NV

St. John’s University

Top Mental Game is what you need if you want to take your game to the next level. Working with Bryan over the past 6 months has helped me to be a more confident and strategic player. Through visualization, relaxation techniques, and positive self talk, I have been able to improve my game in ways I never thought possible. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with Bryan and become a mentally tougher player.

Mark Kantzler

Swimming, Largo, FL

Seton Hall University

Dr. Price and the techniques, mindset, and characteristics of Top Mental Game make me want to reach further towards the person I want to become. They not only helped me assert goals and create a visualization for my sport, but they forced me to evaluate and challenge my awareness and mindfulness, connecting parts of myself I wasn’t sure how to.

Molly Martin

Tennis, Rumson, NJ

My name is Molly Martin and I’m a tennis player. Tennis is a sport that is super tough mentally, because you are on the court alone with no coaches, no parents, and no teammates. It’s just you and your opponent. Before working with Dr. Price, I used to always go into tournaments nervous and tight because I was always worried about losing and I wouldn't play up to my full potential.

Now I’ve learned to stay more calm and confident. I even won my first big tournament after working with Dr. Price. He gave me multiple visualization exercises and recorded exercises that I can do before practice or a match or just after I have a tough time and need to think positive. I really enjoyed working with Dr. Price. He helped me so much!”

 

Jamie Welsh

Golf, Coppell, TX

Oklahoma City University

Top Mental Game has completely revolutionized the way I think about golf. I was a results oriented golfer when it came to my game, and I would not see improvements week to week. With the help of Bryan Price, I became immersed and excited in my process. I became so invested in my goals, drills, and mental exercises that I learned to “love the grind.” His exercises such as “The Gratitude Exercise” and “The Perfect Game” helped me imagine each round before I played. In three months, I went from shooting inconsistent high 70s and mid 80s each tournament to all rounds being 76 or better for the past 4 events. I shot my new PR, 71, yesterday in windy conditions. With a new mindset and a desire to improve, I saw the physical and mental results I was looking for.

Hannah Bateman

Swimmer, Manasquan, NJ

No words can describe my feelings for Top Mental Game. Coach Bryan helped me tremendously to get my mental game to the top. Within a few months, I learned so much on visualization, coping with pressure, and controlling what you can control. As an athlete, these aspects are super important, whether you are going to practice or a meet. You can use these tools at anytime to help you feel more relaxed and prepared for what’s coming. Using these tools has increased my performance and benefited me so much!

Maddie Sager

Golf, Phoenixville, PA

Seton Hall University

In the spring semester of my junior year, I began working with Dr. Price on a lot of different mental skills - goal-setting, visualization techniques, and breathing exercises.

He helped me to reset my thoughts when the pressure was high and to stay calm in panic situations. While my physical game would vary from tournament to tournament, my mental game remained strong, which set me apart from the rest of the field.

After working with Dr. Price, I ended up finishing in 4th at the Big East Championship that spring! Then, after battling a summer shoulder injury, I came out on fire and took 1st place at the 1st tournament of my senior season!

I‘ve been in the lead before going into the final round before, but it was my strong mental game that helped me handle the pressure and play how I know how to play.

I cannot thank Dr. Price enough for his help. His coaching played such a major effort in my success! 

Molly Morris

Soccer, Manasquan, NJ

The mental game is so important in soccer, but it is oftentimes overlooked. Dr. Price made me realize the importance of being at my "Top Mental Game" each time I step onto the pitch. His strategies, including but not limited to visualization and self-talk, have made me realize that I not only need to prepare for a game by practicing my soccer skills, but I need to put my mind in the right direction. Practicing these techniques that I have learned is the best way to do just that. Used alongside Dr. Price's goal setting strategies, I am now set up for success on and off the pitch.

Carolina Ronchel Salas

Golf, Huelva, Spain

Seton Hall University

I started working with Dr. Price in March and I can really see the improvement – in my attitude on the course, my thoughts, and in the way I control myself in different situations. In other words, my mental game has improved significantly, and along with it, my golf game. The techniques I learned helped me to find my zone no matter how I’m playing, regardless of whether I am having my best day or if I’m struggling. Now I am able to take advantage of and control my emotions. I realized how my mind influences my game and the importance of training it as much as my golf game. But, it is not all about golf - Dr. Price taught me how to set and accomplish my goals in life, and how to approach my objectives in both golf and life. I had a great experience with him.

Allyson Barth

Golf, Flower Mound, TX

W. Michigan University

When I started working with Dr. Price, my mental game was below average. He helped me improve the way I look at things, and it has changed my mentality for the better. It has changed the way I think both on and off the golf course. His techniques have helped me gain confidence in myself. I no longer need to feel in control of things that are out of my control. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to work with him on what I believe is one of the most important parts of golf. 

Parents

Jamie Blalock

Dad, Rumson, NJ

Our oldest son Nick has always been extremely passionate with the sport of lacrosse. Since he began playing back in first grade, he has always been an above average player that has focused on becoming better each and every season. From having a dad that played Division 1 lacrosse to having two current professional lacrosse players as mentors, he has always been around people coaching him up in all aspects of the game. We always felt that we were covering what we needed to for his development with the sport.

He then suffered through some injuries last summer that completely derailed him and after being shut down for several months to heal, had a very hard time coming back. He just wasn’t the same kid that we had grown accustomed to seeing. He had a total lack of confidence and over analyzed everything he did on the field. We knew we had to find a way to get his mind “right” again for him to have any chance of getting back to his old form.

Fortunately for us, through much online research, we were very pleased to meet Dr. Price. His background with athletes and coaches from various sports, along with his extensive military training, made us feel that this was the appropriate approach to pursue for Nick. Right away after just a few sessions, we could see a different kid than we saw before. The exercises he shared not only translated into Nick becoming a better athlete, but into a more focused and well rounded person that can maturely handle life's many challenges.

Now, after only a few months of finishing his program, Nick has completely regained his old form and is a major contributor for his high school varsity program. His confidence is soaring, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We strongly endorse Dr. Price and would recommend his program for anyone in pursuit of achieving their dreams both on and off the field.

Amy Oliphant

Mom, Northbrook, IL

As a swim coach, mental performance coach, parent, and athlete, I recognize the need for mental training. I also recognize the need for me to be a parent to my children and not their coach so when my son came to me and asked me for help with his mental game, I knew exactly who to call, Bryan Price at Top Mental Game! I was lucky enough to cross paths with Bryan in a mindset/mental performance mastermind community and through this community have seen his ability to connect with athletes and take them to the next level first hand. 

Junior hockey is a tough road and my son was feeling the pressure. He was having a hard time scoring and getting points in the book despite working his tail off and the more he pressed, the less effective he was. Within weeks of starting with Bryan, there was a huge shift in his confidence and performance. I could hear it in his voice and I could see it on the ice. He started focusing on the process instead of the end result. Bryan connected with him immediately and through visualization, goal setting, and various other mindset techniques was able to help my son shift his mindset. He has now become a force and leader on his junior team and is more confident and focused both on and off the ice. He knows that his hard work is going to pay off.

I can’t thank Bryan enough for all he has done for my son. I believe that we are only as good as the people we surround ourselves with and if you have Bryan on your team, you are going to be hard to beat. Thank you Bryan and Top Mental Game!

Kara Carcaterra

Mom, Little Silver, NJ

Our daughter Kendall chose lacrosse to be her main sport. However, this spring something seemed off. She started to look a bit aloof on the field. Was it coming back to play after the COVID quarantine? Was she just being a teen? She became very disappointed in her play too. I then started to think her body language on the field might have to do more with anxiety.

When I expressed my concerns about Kendall to a friend, Bryan was quickly recommended to me! 

Kendall met with Bryan in person for 8 sessions. After each session she came out of the meeting with such an energetic, upbeat attitude and would talk to me about what she had just learned and how she planned to utilize the lesson.

 Right away she looked like a different player on the field. She was engaged, confident and, best of all, coming off the field proud of her performance!

She’s going into her freshman year of high school and I truly believe that her sessions with Bryan will not only help her achieve her athletic goals but will help her with her academic/life goals too! She’s learned to believe more in herself and how to handle herself when faced with a situation that makes her anxious. Instead of shutting down she’s putting her best effort out there. If she doesn’t get the result she wanted, she now has the tools to help herself perform better the next time.

Jim Welsh

Dad, Coppell, TX

Dr. Price is putting together an amazing legacy of helping athletes reach their dreams! Put simply, I can’t believe what he has unlocked in Jamie in their short time together.

Our daughter, Jamie, got serious about playing golf at the age of 15, a bit late by today’s standards.  She had been around the game for a while and played sporadically in a couple of junior events, but it wasn’t until after her freshman year in high school that she came to us and announced that she wanted to play in college.  Honestly, I was both excited and worried for her as I know first-hand that this game is brutal and owes you nothing.  I knew what was ahead for her in terms of work, she definitely puts in the time and effort…countless hours on the range, practice greens and course.  I don’t want to discount that component because, without her work on her own and with her golf coach, she would have never been capable of capitalizing on what Dr. Price has enabled.

Before starting with Dr. Price in the Spring of 2020, Jamie’s scores were fairly sporadic and she seemed to have drastic highs and lows in her rounds.  Immediately after beginning with Dr. Price, we started hearing about the tools and methodologies they were discussing.  Jamie’s on-course demeanor changed. She is now grounded, non-emotional and focused.  She is present in every shot, every putt and every decision.  The results are shocking.  Her scores have fallen through the floor--she shot her first round under par and has had multiple top five finishes in tough fields.  She played in her first AJGA event, a qualifier for an open series event, and she won it, earning her way into the field.  We are still early in her path following our introduction with Dr. Price, but her success in the first half of 2020 cannot be mistaken.  Mindset matters!

John O’Connell

Dad, Abilene, TX

My oldest daughter, Callie, is a very passionate and talented volleyball player. She loves the game and has put in a great deal of effort over the past few years to hone her skills as a setter to pursue her goal of playing Division 1 volleyball. It became apparent, though, that she was struggling with the mental and emotional side of the game and her frustrations with making mistakes were sabotaging her subsequent performance during competition. 

Unfortunately, the conversations with ‘Dad’ on the way home from practice and tournaments in which I implored her to ‘relax a little bit’ were not getting the job done.  

Bryan and I are West Point classmates, though, we hadn’t talked in a number of years when I found out about his Top Mental Game program. I felt like his expertise would be perfectly suited to address some of Callie’s shortcomings. And, given our past, I knew I could trust his skills to lead her and train her on this journey. 

They connected right from the start and Callie was beaming after every session. I was delighted that the two of them developed such a great rapport, but I’m most pleased with the results. Callie is so much more confident in her abilities now than before her training with Bryan. In times past, if she put up a bad set or doubled a ball, she was a mess for several points thereafter. That is truly not the case anymore.  She easily recovers from errors now.  I’ve also noticed that she has become a much better teammate and leader on the court because she is so much less anxious about her individual performance.

I recommend Bryan’s program to any parent looking to give their athlete a mental edge. You will not be disappointed in the results.

Emily Beglin

Mom, Carson City, NV

After more than six months of research, consideration and interviews of various mindset/sports psychology coaches and programs, I knew as soon as I met Bryan, that Top Mental Game was exactly what we were searching for to coach our two daughters, who were junior golfers at the time. 

Thanks to Bryan’s coaching, one is now a Division I student-athlete and enjoying much success both on and off the golf course. Our other daughter is a junior in high school and is enjoying the fruits of their collective labor in overcoming the mental obstacles she had previously experienced during tournament play.

One of the most important components of the program is goal setting with very specific and measurable action items to reaching these goals. Bryan leads them through this process and holds them accountable. Both of our daughters are enjoying being more organized, thoughtful and driven than ever. They are fulfilling both their personal and athletic goals and their dreams are being realized every day. For a parent there is no greater joy, as these life skills are not only useful today, they will carry the girls far into their future endeavors.

An injury can be a devastating blow to the mindset of an athlete. Sports are a big part of what an athlete identifies with and who they are.

Our son suffered a season-ending injury in the summer of 2021 prior to starting his freshman year of High School.

His confidence was shaken knowing he would be out of commission for 6+ weeks and his outlook was at a low point.

We spoke to Bryan Price at Top Mental Game and immediately took the opportunity for him to work with our son.

My son felt very comfortable speaking to Bryan and looked forward to each session. He found Bryan very easy talk to as he has a compassionate, kind and understanding way about him.

Through weekly sessions, Bryan used different visualization techniques and other exercises to help heighten his awareness of the mental aspect of his game, having him focus on the process of his ultimate goal and breakdown any barriers that were holding him back from achieving that success.

These techniques have helped him to push through any trepidations and pressure situations he may face both on and off the field. He realizes now that the mental aspect is just as important as the physical aspect of the game and in the game of life. He will need to continue to hone these skills just like he does on the physical skillset.

There are coaches who work on the physical part of the athlete’s game, but what completes the whole athlete is a coach who works on the mental side of the game. Top Mental Game has been just that.

Sara Bateman

Mom, Manasquan, NJ

Dr. Price has been instrumental in helping our 11 yr-old daughter develop an understanding of the mental component of competitive swimming and life in general. He quickly connected with her and established a strong sense of trust. He provided strategies to help her learn more about herself and how to process the stress that comes with competition. She learned relaxation methods, visualization exercises, and positive self talk. These skills enabled her to have a successful season that was fun and where her swimming results improved significantly. I can’t thank Dr. Price enough for sharing his knowledge and passion about mentally preparing our daughter for the challenges she’ll face as she grows and develops in the pool and as a person.

Erin and Mitch Martin

Parents, Rumson, NJ

A friend of ours recommended Dr. Price for our 11 year old daughter Molly. She is a competitive tennis player who plays in USTA tournaments. As a parent during a match, you are unable to coach in any way, even saying “come on Molly!” Can get you ejected. As she has gotten older, matches have become more competitive. We were noticing more difficulty in how she managed her games/matches. She just could not manage the downs in a game and would allow them to affect the whole match. She needed more tools since she is her own coach on the court. Dr. Price quickly developed a trust with Molly. She loved going to each session and he made her think in different ways. We began to see her gain more confidence. She is actively using the tools she developed in her sessions, in both tennis and life. We would recommend Dr. Price in a heartbeat!!

Jeff and Ceclia Showalter

Parents of Henry, Madison, AL

Over the course of a few months, our middle-school-aged son got serious about tennis, made the high school tennis team as a 7th-grader, and started competing in USTA tournaments.

At the tournaments, we noticed he did not play like he practiced. It was hard to watch Henry struggle in competitions, and we weren’t sure how to help him. When we learned about Top Mental Game, we thought working with Dr. Price would be a great opportunity to address Henry’s on-court issues while providing him with tools that would serve him for life.

In their time together, Dr. Price taught Henry to visualize and work towards success and gave him strategies to handle setbacks. He has transformed Henry’s approach to competing and gave him the gift of a freer, stronger, more focused mind. We loved watching the return of Henry’s smile, confidence, and hustle on the court. We are proud of the work Henry puts into his game, and so thankful to Dr. Price!

Brian Abell

Dad, Virginia

Times are uncertain and busy families are finding empty schedules that were previously occupied by competitive dance competitions and travel baseball tournaments. For my 14-year-old son Mark, I could think of no more valuable activity but to participate in Dr. Bryan Price’s Mental Toughness Boot Camp.
As a personal friend and teammate of Dr. Price at West Point, I was confident that he would motivate my son and help him prepare for the perils of competitive athletics and life’s routine challenges.
Though we cannot yet see the value of the lessons that Mark learned on the fields of friendly strife, I have reviewed Mark’s notes and we have talked about the webinar experience. In very short time it was obvious to me that Mark’s edges were sharpened and he clearly understood ways in which he will prepare for future competitions, tough academic challenges, and any other challenges that we face as young athletes and older adults.

What has Top Mental Game meant to our daughter Paige?

She found Dr. Price’s delivery of information to be succinct, very easy to follow, and she enjoyed the “natural flow” of the conversations. When I spoke to her about the sessions, there was a clear enthusiasm about the things Dr. Price discussed.

The strategies Dr. Price discussed offered “perspective” and further allowed her to compartmentalize the things that happen on the course, both good and bad. These strategies are particularly useful when things go bad, and for anyone who has ever played golf,they know all too well that things always go bad on the course, even during a good round!

Paige has specifically told me that she found the program helpful for keeping perspective of what just happened (positive or negative), and then using the tools to move onto the rest of the round.

In a sport where you have so much time to think about what is going on, it is imperative to have a means to stay “present” and to avoid dwelling on the past as you prepare for the next shot.

The other benefit I have observed is her demeanor on the course. She is, by anyone’s description, a passionate and emotional player, which in my book is a good thing. But the change she experienced with Dr. Price has resulted in a more level approach to control any negative emotions. I have always said, “you can’t control what you feel, you can only control how you react to how you feel!” Top Mental Game has given her additional techniques to help manage those reactions and it shows in her body language, which has been much improved.

For me as a parent, the added value of the program is that it can actually be applied to several other areas of their lives.

“It takes more than technical, skills, and physical training to be successful in any sport. Mental training is just as important as the physical training. I don’t think any parent could ever prepare their child for the mental part of playing any competitive sport, this is where Bryan Price comes in and mentally trains them.

Bryan has helped my son tremendously strengthen his mind and confidence on and off the field.
Bryan knows how to re-wire an athlete and help with any negative or frustrating thoughts they may have that could prevent them from playing well.

My son is a different person on the field and he enjoys the exercises that Bryan has worked with him on to prepare himself before a game and training. We cannot thank Bryan enough for this type of coaching - it is something my son can use on and off the field. It was one of the best things I did for my son!”

After our 12-yr old son began working with Dr. Price, we saw a huge boost in his confidence and attitude, both on and off the field. From their first session, Dr. Price quickly connected with him on a personal level and made him feel very comfortable. We saw a change in him almost instantaneously. He got into the car after that session happier and more positive. He told us that, “Dr. Price understood him in a way that nobody ever has” and that he “just got him.” As his parents, this was music to our ears. He went to practice that night and played with a confidence that we haven’t seen in him in months. 

They have worked on both mental and visual strategies that our son can use on a daily basis to help him calm his nerves before a game, play with confidence, and be the best player, teammate, and person he can be. We truly believe that the mental skills that Dr. Price taught him are ones that he'll be able to utilize not only on the field but in all aspects of his life for a long time to come!

We met Bryan when he did a session on “mental toughness” for our son Leo’s soccer team – and seeing how inspired Leo was by that session, we signed-up for Bryan’s 3-month one-on-one program. It quickly became the highlight of our son’s week.

He felt like he was gaining a competitive advantage tailor-made for him. That’s a testament to Bryan’s ability to connect with kids on an individual level, to understand their ambitions and challenges.

Since then, Leo has been putting Bryan’s visualization exercises to good use, and while he says it’s helped make him a more confident player, we see the results: a kid whose love of the game is growing. Maybe most surprisingly, though, is seeing how some of what Bryan taught Leo is helping him off the field. He’s becoming a more patient kid, able to regulate his emotions, even in the face of a little brother! We’re looking forward to the new school year as well, because we’ve no doubt what Bryan has taught Leo will help him excel in the classroom the way it’s working on the field.

If you’re looking for an activity this week for your student athlete, this is perfect. Addie participated in Top Mental Game boot camp last week and loved it. I personally know Dr. Bryan Price and he is great at what he does!

As a parent of a teenage daughter/athlete, it is difficult and worrisome at times to know who to trust and lean on when it comes to your child’s growth in sports.  However, when I learned that Bryan had started Top Mental Game, I knew this was going to be a great learning experience for my daughter Lauren. 

How did I know?  Not only are Bryan’s credentials impeccable, but he is a former teammate and fellow member of West Point’s Long Gray Line.  I knew he would develop and take care of Lauren as well as his own daughter, and he has. Since starting with Bryan and Top Mental Game four months ago, Lauren has shot her first round in the 60s, placed top 5 in 5 out of 8 tournaments and lowered her scoring average by 3 strokes. With the help of Bryan and his coaching, Lauren is strengthening her foundation that she will continue to build upon; a lot of hard work still lies ahead, but the future is exciting. #mindsetmatters
