    Dr. Novetsky and Dr. Wood did a presentation with our high school golf team on “post shot routines.” The presentation was absolutely ON TARGET. Many golfers have consistent pre-shot routines that include visualization; most do not have a post shot routine. Dr. Wood and Dr. Novetsky provided a perspective that can be applied on the golf course, in the classroom, and in the workforce.

  2. Jen Dunbar says:

    I was at a loss for what else to do with my team. I tried everything I could think of, pulled out all the coaching stops, yet we were still grossly under-performing and just couldn’t pull out the wins. It was as though we were afraid to win. After just one team meeting with Dr. Novetsky and Dr. Wood we found a couple key tactics and phrases that we carried with us throughout the remainder of the season which culminated in a State Championship. These guys are definitely a key in working with the ever important mental side of sport. A great resource our team will continue to work with in the future.

  3. Dale Erickson says:

    Dr. Jason Novetsky is a former teammate of mine. He was a terrific pitcher and is an even better man. I have the utmost respect for him and his program because Jason has played the game at a very high level. He knows what is going on internally as the games progress and players are placed in different situations. He comes at this from the psychological side and the side of someone that has “been there, done that.”

  4. Inga Lawler says:

    My daughter was preparing for an important championship swim meet and wanted to do everything she could to be her best that weekend. Dr. Novetsky gave her the tools she needed to be mentally prepared for her races and the pressure that goes along with them. Not only did she swim personal bests in both of her events she learned skills that will help her in competitions in the future as well as in life.

  5. Susie Moceri says:

    I have worked with Dr. Jason Novetsky privately and with my team, he gave me the tools to become a mentally tough competitor. I cant thank you enough!

    Thank you Jared and Jason!! Your expertise got my USTA Tennis team to disrticts!

  6. Jill Genord says:

    Dr. Novetsky,

    Just wanted to touch base and let you know that we are seeing some great strides with our son in his mental toughness and attitude this lacrosse season. He made the varsity team and is showing an increased sense of maturity about his game.

    Watching him this season really makes me believe that all the things you talked about are beginning to take hold and make sense to him. I feel he now understands how practical and applicable it is to him….not just something other people say and do but something he really has control of that will yield good results. We are grateful for your assistance in this process.

  7. Jim Corbeil says:

    Jason did a baseball team event for me and my 14U team. At that age, the game becomes more serious and every advantage becomes like gold. Players who were “all stars” at the younger ages are not “equals” to their team mates and opponents so their egos were a bit fragile.

    With the curriculum that Jason did, the players learned how to set and measure individual and team goals, how to control situations, how to take stress out of situations and how to focus on the task. They also learned the power of the team brotherhood and how the TEAM mentality can help them as individuals make it to the next level.

    This was well worth the cost to do and helped some of my players who were questioning their abilities gain that extra edge back.

    Best of all, many of the lessons Jason taught the guys were not just baseball lessons, but life lessons that they can apply to HS, College and their careers.

    Thanks to Jason! Great job!

  8. Jennifer says:

    Our son recognized his mental game needed some help and Dr. Novetsky was just the guy to help. He continues to work with him and demonstrates the importance of a strong mental approach, along with teaching the skills needed both in practice and games. We see the progress and look forward to continued growth!

  9. Jim says:

    My son was struck down with one of the unspoken curses of baseball. Many times it’s called the “yips”. One day he forgot how to throw a baseball. As a sophomore, he had been brought up to the varsity team and was doing really well. Maybe it was the pressure? Who knows. All of the sudden, the day after one of his best outings he forgot how to throw. Balls would hit the ground and next would sail five feet over his target’s head. His release point was gone? Everyone told him not think about it and just do it. This made it worse. He thought he was going crazy. His coaches were dumbfounded. After a few months away from the game he agreed to meet with Dr. Novetsky. My son worked through the drills and processes presented to him by Dr. Novetsky. It took hard worked on his part, but he has slowly regained his confidence and ability to throw. Moreover, I’ve seen him pull from the same tool box to help him tackle issues beyond baseball. I’m very proud of his courage. I thank Dr. Novetsky for his help.

  10. Justin Loomis says:

    Going through champion mindset group with Dr. Novetsky really helped me turn around my thinking. It really helped me get focused and ready for the golf season. It got me off to a great start to my golf year.

  11. Jackie says:

    I am very thankful that I met Dr. Novetsky. I couldn’t be happier that I am working with someone who knows so much about the mind. It is nice to have someone that understands what is going on in my thought process when I am in the moment of playing golf. He has a lot of good drills and information to take on and off the golf course. I am excited to see what this next year will bring and continue to work with Dr. Novetsky to follow my dreams!

  12. Paul Pavliscak says:

    I had the privilege to play for Dr. Novetsky my Freshman year of high school. My team and I experienced his mental toughness lessons, so I was able to put this strategy into my next game. The mental visualizations made me emphasize my focus on what my goals were, and what I need to do to attain them. I have continued seeing Dr. Novetsky after my season ended. He has continued to mentor me not just with my athletic goals, but with life goals in general. Marrying these two objectives has made me think more about my life, it’s purpose, and what I am meant to be doing long term, with academics and sports. I would recommend to any athlete, even if you are not struggling currently, to see Dr. Novetsky, to strengthen you mentally in every aspect.

    Thank you, Dr. Novetsky, for all you do!

  13. Maureen says:

    Working with Dr. Novetsky has had a powerful impact on my daughter’s performance in golf. She has learned to use mental routines before every shot and to use positive self-talk and other strategies on the course. She does mental practice to prepare for events and routines for pre and post game. At a young age, Danielle has learned to focus on what’s important, tune out distractions, and deal with stressful situations. The changes in her approach to play and her scores have been impressive. Dr. Novetsky has helped her to develop her goals and self-image. The success she has had in learning and using mental toughness will bring her success both on and off the golf course throughout her lifetime.

  14. Leslie says:

    Both of my boys work with Dr. Novetsky and it has made such a difference in their performance and their attitude in their sports. Not only has it given them both mental strength, they have learned to deal with the mental side of their sports in a way that, even after one visit, they were performing better. They are both more confident, positive and focused. They have learned to set goals and the path to reaching them.

    My one son, the coach would always say “you need to want it more” yet, at a young age, we weren’t sure how to help him with the mental part of the game. Dr. Novetsky, has strengthened the mental side of his game so that he now knows what it means to “want it more” and is able to get through tough situations so much faster and to refocus. His coach now sees he “wants it more”.

    Dr. Novetsky has been what our boys needed and it has paid off two-fold!

  15. Kristin Ebling says:

    My most valued life treasure, my son, was having issues with transitioning to the pressures of teenaged life and high level sports. Our best decision ever was to entrust him to Dr. Novetsky and Champion Mindset.

    Dr. Novetsky takes an unparalleled approach to addressing a child where they are at with targeted, actionable techniques to break issues down to manageable chunks for immediate progress. His wholistic approach addresses an individual as a person as well as an athlete and helps them to define a self image and actionable goals that improve every aspect of their best self.

    In just a few short months my son’s ability to recover from set backs, stress level, attitude, focus, mental preparation and performance have improved dramatically.

    As a result of his outstanding, professional and productive work with my son, Dr. Novetsky will now begin work with his entire team. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with Dr. Novetsky and Champion Mindset.

  16. Graham Fett says:

    How many times have you as a parent or coach observed your kids playing at a really high level in practice, but not being able to achieve the same level of performance in a game? Dr. Novetsky provides athletes with the tools that will help them perform to the utmost of their ability consistently in competition. He has worked with both of my sons and provided them with methods in the very first session that they were able to use immediately. They have both shown dramatic improvement in their ability to overcome adversity and not let a bad play become a bad game.

    The process they have both gone through with Dr. Novetsky has been truly rewarding and enjoyable. They look forward to the sessions and always leave with a smile. Most importantly, the techniques taught extend beyond the playing field. They have used the mental tools taught by Dr. Novetsky to prepare for tests and have shown a marked improvement in the classroom.

  17. Meredith Weaver says:

    As a Division II women’s golf coach I am determined to help my players reach their full potential and I believe Dr. Novetsky’s guidance is going to provide the extra element they need to reach that potential. After three semesters of watching them struggle with scoring (not due to lack of talent) we decided the mental part of the game is where they needed to do some hard work. The very first session we had with Dr. Novetsky assured me we were doing the right thing! His expertise is without question and, despite having played DI baseball, he totally understands both the physical and mental aspects of the game of golf. Along with his sport specific approach Dr. Novetsky is also able to relate these concepts to my players’ lives off the course. They are terrific students and are implementing many of the concepts he has shared in their approach to academics as well.
    I am excited to continue our work with Dr. Novetsky and feel confident we will see the payoff as we begin our Spring tournament schedule.

  18. Dan Berry says:

    Dr. Novetsky, or Coach Jason as my players like to call him, was a welcome and positive addition to our hockey team. While our players were a little on the younger end of the spectrum (03s/12-13 yr old), Jason did an excellent job of communication and keeping the players engaged all season long.

    One of the principal goals of our team is not only to develop hockey players but to help transition these players from “kids” to “young men”. With Dr. Novetsky’s structured approach, our players have learned “life-long” strategies and mindsets that will help carry them thru high school, college and that thing called the “real-world”.

    Our players learned mental toughness, focus, controlling the controllable events, how to deal with adversity and how to push themselves to reach their specific individual and team goals. Our team, with the leadership of Dr. Novetsky, created and put into place Team Core Covenants and a Team Identity Statement.

    Dr. Novetsky will continue to be a trusted advisor to any team that I am involved with as he brought more to my team than I ever could have imagined!

  19. Some recent testimonials from a seminar for the Hawks Gold Baseball Club:

    Another great seminar by Dr Jason Novetsky. David also took a ton of notes (like a lot of boys I observed today). He also said he wants to talk to his teammates about implementing BASE2 this season, and having a “team session” with Dr Novetsky.
    I also heard several players talk about how they learned techniques to recover from adversity, and how they felt it would help them when it happened during the game. Again, outstanding seminar.

    What an excellent clinic today ! Taking it one step beyond hitting, throwing, catching. Teaching our boys how to deal with adversity not only in sports but everyday life. Thankful for the opportunity Tyler and the boys had today learning about the mental side of success and failure.

    Eventually, a dedicated athlete will fall into a positive routine, find a system for success that works for them. For our boys to be exposed to this training early on in their athletic career plants seeds for positive behavior, routines and so much more opportunity than “eventually figuring it out.” Thanks for this opportunity! Everything he said is exactly true

    — I sure wish I would have had this at our boys ages rather later in my athletic career. I am all for as many of these events as time allows. Bryant took a page of notes as well and was proud to share his goals and what he learned this time around.

    As a parent and coach, I thought it was definitely worthwhile and will be a vital part of the program moving forward.

    For multi-sport athletes, the information is applicable to all sports and any other adversity that life throws their direction.

    This was a wonderful presentation for our boys! Austin took a full page of notes and said that the speaker was an expert and he understood how he feels when he plays hard and makes a mistake. He said he learned you will make mistakes in life as well as on the baseball field. He now knows strategies to help him so that he doesn’t allow himself to think about it too much or get down on himself! He has struggled with this on and off during his sports career and we are so glad Hawks gold offers this seminar!!!!!! Thank you

    Excellent seminar- what a great opportunity for our boys. Very helpful as baseball is so mental and so much comes from within.

    Thank you so much for Hawks Gold for having this AWESOME seminar!! Hunter said ” I liked that a whole lot better than school!!” He took notes, and was talking about it all the way home! I think this helped a lot! The whole mental toughness planning to take your game to the next level, will help him to prepare better! The relaxation routines he said were helpful! So happy we attended today! Thank you again!!

    Excellent techniques for the players to use and great presenter that was able to relate to the kids of all ages. Thanks for having this Hawks Gold. Great to watch the boys take notes and attentive.

    Awesome seminar, everything discussed is applicable to all aspects of life. I am so proud to be apart of an organization that offers and introduces these vital skills to life for our youth!

  21. Dr. Brian Homer says:

    My son is an 11-year-old AAA hockey player who started working with Dr. Novetsky this season. Since they began working together, my sons competitive edge has skyrocketed! Coach Jason, as my son likes to call him, has definitely brought my sons mental game to the next level, which has in turn improved his physical game. They meet a couple of times each month and after every session, my son is “mentally turbo charged” and cannot wait to start working on and implementing the mental tools and exercises that Dr. Novetsky prescribes. We look forward to a long lasting relationship.

    Thanks for everything Coach!

  22. Steven S. Toth says:

    I generally shy away from giving testimonials. However, when it comes to the fine work that Dr. Novetsky does, I will gladly make an exception. By the time Dr. Novetsky got a hold of my son, his confidence was shot and his baseball future was looking grim. Through his efforts, my son was able to understand the mental aspect of the game and regain his confidence. I am proud to say my son is now playing college baseball which would not have been possible without Dr. Novetsky.

  23. Matt Knight says:

    Dr. Jason Novetsky was incredibly helpful with making me a more mentally tough golfer. What I have learned from him has not only benefited my golf game immensely, but has also impacted my life in many other ways. Without him, I would not be where I am today.

  24. Donna says:

    I heard about Dr. Novetsky through a fellow golf competitor. I hadn’t played with her in a while and when we were paired together in a tournament, I noticed how her game had really improved. I asked what she had been doing in the off season, and she mentioned Dr. Novetsky. I called him that day. My competitive golf has been different ever since. Prior to meeting Dr. Novetsky, I had read every Bob Rotella golf book, Zen golf and others regarding the mental aspects of the game. I gained a lot of insight from these books but Dr. Novetsky has helped me really work these ideas into my game. I had a very successful golf season and with Dr. Novetsky , have reassessed my goals with plans for an even better next season.

    The most interesting part of my sessions with Dr. Novetsky is that I came to him for advice with my golf but in the process have learned more about myself. This has helped me in my career, my personal relationships and how I see my future. I highly recommend Champion Mindset Group. Dr. Novetsky will not only help with your sports ambitions but it may surprise you how much you discover how these techniques apply to your everyday life.

  25. Jonathan Lapshan says:

    Dr. Novetsky taught me the magnitude of the power the mind has over the body, and that any athlete who needs work with the mental side of his or her sport should consider taking the steps to strengthen their mental preparation with someone like Jason. I could tell that he took pride in what he does, and he genuinely cares about his clients. Positive thoughts and mental practices not only help with athletics, but can be applied to all parts of life. I recommend Dr. Jason Novetsky.

  26. Ben says:

    I learned so much from Dr. Novetsky over five sessions throughout the winter. Going into my first Spring Training, I knew how important having a grasp on the mental side of baseball would be for my success. I’m so glad I worked with Dr. Novetsky. Everything I learned in his sessions is practical and easy to apply daily. I highly recommend any athlete to see Dr. Novetsky. You will learn so much and transform how your perform. You will be focused and motivated every day, and when it’s time to go on the field, you will be locked in and confident.

  27. Kim Arnold says:

    Hi Dr. Novetsky,
    We’ve been wanting to send you an update on Bryce and just haven’t taken a minute so we decided tonight must be the night…. for reasons you’ll see below…..

    Bryce has been doing really well. His confidence continues to improve and he is showing more positive consistency with his emotional game.

    Last weekend he pitched in the Canton Cinco de Mayo tournament and was totally in the zone. Struck out seven, gave up only two runs and earned the win.

    Tonight he pitched a no hitter in the first game of our home hosted tournament!

    He’s been hitting pretty well too… lots of confident swings.

    The biggest change we’re seeing is his confidence, his approach and his attitude…. his mental game….and a lot of that is because of you.

    He still has his poster by his bed and he looks at it every morning. He still does some of the charting you taught him and still has the tag I made him on his bag.

    The smile on his face after the game tonight was priceless. And the opposing coaches chose him as MVP of the game, to boot!

    Thank you so much for what you do. We are grateful to have crossed paths with you.
    We will definitely keep in touch.
    All the best,
    Jay and Kim Arnold
