Powerful athletes know there is more to performance than physical endurance, strength, will, and nutrition. Powerful athletes know that their greatest asset is engaging and understanding their center: developing their mental core.

CMHA Kelowna has made it a priority to help coaches, athletes, and parents of athletes learn how to develop their mental core: identity, resiliency, mental tenacity. We empower athletes to reach new potential by incorporating their mental core.

Through presentations, consultation, and access to resources–whether online, local aids, or national sourcing–CMHA can help you as an athlete, your team, or your athletic child.
