What Parents Are Saying...

-Beth | Hockey Mom

"Eli helped tackle some of the biggest challenges our son was facing, through consistency and practice. We saw a great deal of improvement in our son’s performance and attitude. The paradigm shift that Eli taught him is one that we use to this day and one that we have used outside of the sports environment as well. We had a great experience working with Eli and so did our son!"

-John | Gymnastics Dad

"My daughter just started and completed Module 4 on Friday, had her best gymnastics meet of the year on Saturday!"

-Jessica | Soccer/Lacrosse Mom

"He subbed for his older brother's U14 soccer game tonight….. willingly. And not only did he show up, but he stood out and played with such confidence with kids much older than him. Three months ago this would have never happened!"

-Ina | Swimming Mom

"Hi Eli, Liam performed really well and so much better than it was in February. So grateful for your help! Liam said your tips massively helped him."

-Kristin | Baseball Mom

"Noah had a great couple of games!! Always great to have some successes and he seems to be applying some of the concepts you’ve discussed!"

-Carlos | Baseball Dad

"He is learning how to control his mind and now he is showing his potential even in those days where the things are not 100% good or after some mistakes and that is really important. We want to say thank you, sir, because he is enjoying the games in the way he is supposed to be."
