“I wish I had taken the MGCP course before playing professional football because this would have been a huge asset to my career. The course is detailed and shows step by step how to improve an athlete’s mental ability and performance by identifying underlying issues or problems. The course is well-organized and I feel that I learned a lifetime of information in 20 hours of live coaching with Dr. Cohn!”
~ Cortez Hankton Jr.

As a Certified Mental Game Coaching Professional (MGCP), you’ll learn to master the methods you need to help athletes build confidence, improve focus, galvanize team cohesion, enhance communication skills, boost productivity, and maximize performance.

This comprehensive and in-depth MGCP program is offered in two formats:

  • One-on-One Mental Game Coaching Professional (MGCP) certification (in person or via the phone)
  • Group teleclasses Mental Game Coaching Professional certification (via video conference technology)

How the MGCP Program Works…

To become a Certified Mental Game Coaching Professional (MGCP) takes approximately 10 weeks (12 weeks for a summer program), meeting once a week for two hours by web video conferencing. In addition to the weekly learning sessions, there will be approximately 30-40 hours of homework assignments during the course, which will include athlete mental game assessments, and application of mental game skills based upon actual situations where athlete performance is stunted by mental obstacles. Throughout this 10-week program, you will assist athletes, receive 18 case studies, get hands-on experience in dealing with real-life challenges (work with a local athlete), and receive written materials to ensure that you have the tools necessary to be a powerfully effective mental game coach. By the end of the program (provided you have completed all requirements for graduation, including passing the certification exam), you will receive a certification from Peak Performance Sports, LLC as a certified Mental Game Coaching Professional (MGCP) and will be able to use the MGCP title and insignia and earn a listing on as a certified MGCP.
