Mike Pegg, Performance Psychologist, UK

"I coach the U14 girls Elite team.  I had a player who was extremely hard on herself.  The coaches felt she was one of the top players on the team but she was never satisfied with her play.  I gave her my copy of Focused for Soccer.  She is now playing with great confidence, has made the State Team in her age group and continues to develop as an all round player.

Tim Krout, Executive Director, Richmond Kickers Youth Soccer Club, USA
