NY Nationals Sports Psychology Night Saturday March 4th, 7pm – 8pm

Posted by Coach Rick On February - 20 - 2017Comments Off

“If we always spend time talking about how baseball is 90% mental why do we only work on it 10% of the time?”

Steve Springer – “Quality at Bats”

Sport psychology is an interdisciplinary science that draws on knowledge from many related fields including biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. It involves the study of how psychological factors affect performance and how participation in sport and exercise affect psychological and physical factors.”

We’re going to talk about the mental tips and tricks ballplayers use to help them find success.

Saturday March 4th, 7pm – 8pm @ NY NATIONALS ACADEMY

“Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical” Yogi Berra

No other college program on Long Island can offer you more for your money.

If you’re in a college program or your heading into one what you need during the summer is access to an academy to train and games to develop.

Call the academy and ask to speak to General Manager Ricky Caputo for more information.  631-319-1122 or email him at rick@nynationals.com.

Total cost of the program / player is $950 regardless of when you sign up or if you are a pitcher or position player.  This covers all expenses and barely makes money back for the program.  We do this because we understand many of you have played in our organization or another from 13u – 18u and have spent lots of money getting into a college program.  Our program offers everything  you need now at a price you can afford.

Don’t risk losing your spot because you’re getting way more than you’re paying for if you sign up now and start using the academy today!
