Tier Training Sport Psychology


What is Tier Training about?


Tier Training is about helping clients reach peak levels of performance consistently.

Which one are you?




  • We help you hone, refine and develop strong levels of focus and concentration, so you can perform at a more consistent level during every competition.


  • Tier Training takes confidentiality seriously and never discloses who we work with, if you’d like to disclose it, go ahead. We don’t unless you give us permission. Privacy is critical to the trust we have with clients.


  • Athletes are being forced to compete with increasingly higher levels of stress than ever before. Whether it’s coaching, politics of sport or the stress of competition. All of these and more, are causing young athletes to quit their sport. We will work with athletes to develop coping techniques and teach them the way to manage stress so they can perform under the residing pressures.


  • Tier Training is dedicated to giving athletes the tools and support to help them manage and develop the inner game. Mental skills training can be one of the keys to helping an athlete continue to develop their skills and possibly get to the next level.


  • We work with individuals, teams, coaches and parents for athletes 13 years and over, helping young athletes build their confidence, play with more composure and reach their peak performance. (Athletes under 13 will need to be pre-screened)


  • We work closely with a variety of teams, all with different dynamics. There is no right or wrong time to start working on your mental skills.





  • We help coaches and parents learn the best techniques to empower players to develop and perform at a more consistent level during every competition.


  • Tier Training works closely with coaches and parents to encourage growth in athlete development.


  • We help you hone in on words and actions that could be hindering athlete performance and help you tweak them to encourage optimal performance out of athletes. 





  • We help you hone, refine and develop strong levels of focus, concentration and motivation, so reach your health and fitness goals.


  • Tier Training is dedicated to giving clients the tools and support to help them manage and develop the mental skills. These skills can be one of the keys to helping a client reach their goals and adhere to a healthy lifestyle.
