Real Colorado EDGE Soccer Club – with a “Whole Person” approach for life skills – and Soccer Resilience® – with “Train your brain. Transform your game.” as top skill – have announced an inspiring partnership to elevate the mindset of the club’s players, teams and coaches.
“An often forgotten part of an athlete’s journey as a person and player is the mental aspect. While the on-field technical, tactical and physical training is very important, mental training is just as important to provide a whole person approach to our athletes. We are excited to partner with Soccer Resilience®, who will provide an invaluable resource to our players and teams. Soccer Resilience® has assembled a team of experts and we are excited to have them work with our teams.”
– David Kramer, Real Colorado EDGE Soccer Club Director of Soccer and Business Development
The initial stage of the collaboration this Fall includes mindset training sessions (via zoom) for several boys and girls teams’ players and coaches to develop the Soccer Resilience® pillars – Take Control, Develop Purpose, Build Perseverance, Enhance Performance.
The teams will also harness the Soccer Resilience® FC (SRFC) online academy that includes segmented, regularly updated content for players, coaches AND parents. SRFC members also benefit from live “Team Talk” video casts, recorded videos and a library of written activations.
“As a nine year pro, my primary regret is not training my mental game to get the very best out of my abilities and for better emotional wellness. I am stoked to serve Real Colorado players, coaches, and parents as I was blessed to win an MLS Cup and to be named MLS Humanitarian of the Year while playing in Denver. I commend and highly respect David Kramer (who I won an MLS Cup with) and the club for investing in strengthening the mental fitness and wellbeing of their families and staff.”
– Wells Thompson, Soccer Resilience® Founder
