Athlete Testimony


“I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given me. My current swing mechanics are not even comparable to where they were before I started working with you. When I get compliments on my swing, I am quick to let them know that you are my hitting coach. In addition to the mechanical training we have done, the mental training has helped me achieve success in all aspects of the game. Everything in my game is much more positive and my confidence gets better every day. I look forward to continuing our training and can't wait to see how far it takes me. Thank you so much.”  

  • Kelsi Anderson, Sophomore


“Mental training gives me an edge over my opponents. It helps me understand how to better utilize my strengths and how to identify and improve my weaknesses. The mental game helps me slow things down at game time, which always makes me feel in control of my performance.”

  • Maddy Grimm


“Mental training is a very overlooked skill in all of sports. When I moved from high school to college softball, I began to realize how beneficial a strong mental game is. Learning to visualize and control my mental state improved my confidence. I was able to play more relaxed and confident. With mental training, I became better prepared for competition.”

  • Holly Speers


Parent Testimony


“I want to thank you for having the mental training hitting class. My daughter finished her summer season with numerous hits and 27 home runs. She really benefited from the time you spent with her. Again I thank you very much for helping her improve.”

  • From the father of an 8th grader


“Karen Linder has helped our daughter elevate her softball game to the “next level.”  Karen’s positive, honest, and genuine approach guides our daughter to not just be the best she can, but BETTER than she believes. She is light years ahead of the competition. Thank you for everything you do Karen!”
