"Dr. Dutch and TierOne helped us perform to our potential and work through high expectations and pressure. His methodology is clear and effective. He helped refine our purpose, reflect on our values and beliefs and gave us the tools to achieve. He was able to do this by building a rapport with our team and connecting with our staff through group activities and individual meetings. His mental skills development increased our confidence in performance execution, mental toughness and working through stress and anxiety of performance expectations."
John Vargas, 2X NCAA DI National Champion Coach, Olympic Coach, Olympian, 2X National COY

As I prepared for one of the biggest training sessions of my life, Pro Day at Stanford University, I was introduced to Dr. Dutch. In addition to becoming a close friend and mentor, Dutch provided me with incredible insight through his mind training program. Through his techniques, I was able to sharpen my mind, have laser focus, and exceed expectations at Pro Day (clocking personal bests in every single event in front of the NFL Scouts). Dutch simplifies the complex neuroscience and does a thorough job sharing the "whys" of mind training. I strongly recommend his mental skills development program to people in all phases of life, especially athletes. Dutch is a world-class individual that provides world-class training.
The training provided by Dr. Dutch and TierOne helped me to become a more proficient coach not only because of the ability to implement mind training, but also because I better understand the intrinsic barriers to learning and performance my players encounter. I use what I have learned on the field and in meetings. As a bonus, I'm now able to evaluate myself as a coach in regards to focus and in-game performance. Using the training on myself, I have become a more attentive, calmer, and fulfilled mentor to my players.
It’s one thing to tell your athletes to be mentally tough, yet another thing to teach them HOW to be mentally tough. Dr. Dutch and his TierOne mental skills development program teach you HOW to teach your athletes to be mentally tough – giving your athletes the ability to keep their minds on what matters NOW, in the stress of the moment, in the heat of competition.
I think we are on the right track now and I value the data from the TierOne Recruiting Assessment Questionnaire. We are starting to accumulate data that should make our decisions even clearer in the future.
Elite performance is driven by intentional focused attention on all aspects of performance development. One of the biggest barriers to skill improvement is that athletes do not realistically assess their performance strengths and weaknesses and fail to INTENTIONALLY create a plan to get better.
