The Mind Gym is always open. Train your brain.

Virtual Mental Toughness Camp is April 2, 3 and 4th.  Let's do this!    


Olympians perform under pressure. The entire world is watching. They've trained for years and this is their one shot. How will they control their nerves? How will they manage the pressure?

I've helped 10 year old hockey players and Olympic athletes face their fears, and bring their Best Self on the biggest stage, the biggest day of their life.  Are you ready to take the winning shot, be aggressive, take a risk, play to win rather than play not to lose? Sounds simple but it's not easy.


Mental Toughness isn't magic; it's a skill. Whether you play soccer or volleyball, basketball or hockey, badminton or lacrosse, golf or curling, snowboard or cross country ski, swim or run, you can improve. It doesn't matter if you are 10 years old or 75 years old, you can build your Mental Toughness muscles.


Your biggest stage may be the hoop in your backyard or an Olympic event. I will equip you with a Mental Toughness toolkit and the confidence to step up and save yourself from the voice of self-doubt.


Are your kids/athletes under-performing? Are you frustrated with their lack of motivation, and work ethic? Are the conversations in the car ride home losing their impact? Are they tuning you out? Have your drills stopped transferring to competition? Do your athletes (and you) wilt when the pressure rises?

You want them to take risks and stretch themselves, yet they hide and play it safe. You know they can do better, yet their Best Self rarely appears. When the going gets tough, they go to their phone. What's going on? What's holding them back? Join me at the Mental Toughness Camp so I can help you tackle these problems. "When you know better, you do better." I will equip you with a toolkit so you can do better.


When was the last time you did anything like this as a family? Likely NEVER! Come and join me so I can coach ALL of you and help EACH of you become the best version of yourself. The podium awaits.

Mental Toughness Camp - Past Participants Speak Up


Shawnee's Mental Toughness Camp equips you with skills for sport and life. It's clear, concise, and powerful. She has given me a toolkit whether I'm coaching my team, parenting my kids, or overcoming obstacles in my own life. Her content should be required curriculum in all schools. It's life changing!

Leighann, mom and coach

I learned how to recognize my emotions and how to control them. I also learned how to better understand fear and anxiety in sport and how to overcome them. I learned I can be scared and brave at the same time. This helped me become more confident, take risks, and improve as a player.

Cassidy, 15 year old multi-sport athlete

The MT camp taught me how to talk openly and constructively with my kids about the emotional ups and downs of their sport. It helped resolve much of the anxiety and apprehension that comes with worrying about how your child will respond to challenges. I now have the tools and a common language for discussing both failure and success, in a way that sets up my kids for improvement and next attempts.

Our teenage kids are heavily invested in their sports, and my wife and I want to support them in the best way possible. Our biggest worry was that we were inadvertently putting too much pressure on them to succeed, and that our best intentions might result in them losing interest or burning out of their sport. The MT camp helped us better understand the role of the parent in the life of a young athlete, and resulted in better conversations and an improved relationship with our kids.

Jon, dad

I learned not to hide in the Zoo! This means I need to be willing to take risks and try new things, even if I'm not good at them yet.

Jackson, 13 year old hockey player

Shawnee's MT camp was a first and it provided a language and started a lot of conversations between me and my kids. It's become something we can refer back to and build on when any one of us realize we are being limited by our thinking. They loved the visual images and some of Shawnee's catchy sayings. It was time well spent!

Heidi, mom and coach

Shawnee's camp helped me stop getting mad at myself when I make mistakes.

Kevin, 10 year old soccer player

The camp gave me new tools. The old tools were definitely not working and my son was tuning me out. I stopped coaching him during the car ride home and started asking great questions that caused him to self-reflect. Our conversations improved because I became a better listener. My son now engages in conversation with me rather than his phone.

Scott, dad

I have never been able to do a tail-whip on my scooter until I took Shawnee's Mental Toughness Camp. I enjoyed learning that instead of being sure I can't do something, I can enjoy the possibility that I could be able to do things. I like thinking that way.

Adam, 15 year old scooter rider

Finally someone told me that being nervous at a race is normal. I always tried not be nervous.  Now I know it's ok.

Cole, 12 year old cross country skier

The best thing I learned at Shawnee's virtual camp is how important MY opinion is about my skills. Don't give others more than 25% control over how I feel about myself.

Dayley, 15 year old basketball player and track athlete

Ok, so it might seem weird that I wrote and delivered the MT Camp, AND I'm doing a testimonial. Yet, it completely makes sense. How can I effectively teach this to others if I'm not using it? These MT tools help me when I'm standing over my golf ball; focus on the process, deal with the outcome. I'm responding rather than reacting to mistakes I make in pickleball. Mistakes provide information when I rationally pay attention. When I react emotionally, I'm whining and feeling sorry for myself. Reactions don't create great golf shots, nor do they help in pickleball. So watch out people! I'm getting really good at figuring out my mistakes and using that information to hit the next, great shot! Bam!

Shawnee, MT Coach, golfer, pickleball lover
