The NJ Teamsterz FC of the NISA pro soccer league have teamed up with sports mindset agency Soccer Resilience® to train the mindset of players, coaches and staff while increasing the conversation around mental health for the soccer community.
“The NJ Teamsterz FC continues its commitment to providing the necessary resources to help our players develop on and off the field, and mental health training is a critical piece of this. As an organization, we care about our players, coaches and staff. During the pandemic, many have been navigating through the unknown. Now that we’re headed back on the pitch, we want to make sure we are prepared in every way! After several discussions with Soccer Resilience® Founder Dr. Brad Miller, we are excited to have formed a partnership with Soccer Resilience®. They are doing great and important work in this space. Why an emphasis on mental wellness? Because we care. Hopefully, this can serve as a model that other teams can follow.”
Alex Geraldino, Co-founder, President, GM
The club will embrace and utilize Soccer Resilience® FC to learn mental strengthening strategies, to conquer setbacks and to generate purpose driven perseverance. The online academy includes a library of resources, information, and activations with content regularly refreshed and segmented for players, coaches, and parents. Soccer Resilience® FC members benefit from inspiring articles, interviews, and livecast videos with current pros, experienced coaches and industry leaders.
“We are thrilled to add the NJ Teamsterz FC as our first club in the pro game. Massive props to team owners Alex and Sibrena Geraldino for their intent to build people and community up through the beautiful game of soccer. They are a very intelligent and multi-talented couple and from what I understand the first black principal pro soccer owners in the USA. A strong mentality improves the chance of joy and success. Confidence, performance, culture and wellbeing all elevate through increased self-awareness and smart mental fitness tools and strategies.”
