Townshend, The Players's Mind
Players, Parents, and Coaches,
more than ever, young hockey players have access to an
endless number of excellent hockey camps, private instruction,
training videos and manuals. As young players approach
the competitive high school and college levels, there is
often little difference in the physical capabilities of
the players vying for the starting position.
player with the best physical skills isn't always the
player that becomes the star of the team or the top player
in the league.
is it that there are players with incredible physical skills
who never make it to Division I College Hockey or the professional
is it that we see players at the highest levels who don't
seem to have world class skills, but are able to consistently
contribute more than the better skilled players?
difference that really counts lies in the players's
is universally agreed that playing Hockey well is over
80% mental. Unfortunately, over 90% of the training
that a player receives and puts into practice is focused
on the physical game.
the mind doesn't have to be difficult
face it, training your mind to play better as a hockey
player sounds good on paper, but can be very difficult
and next to impossible to actually implement on a consistent
basis- unless you have the right system.
truth is that this is the missing ingredient
that will make the most significant difference in the
level of achievement that you will reach as
a hockey player.

concepts being talked about at hockey camps and in hockey
instructional manuals and videos, but without
a proven, simple to implement system, most players skip
over this critical area completely.

into The Zone
into The Zone really means performing automatically-
your mind and body are working in harmony. This
happens when you are so confident, completely relaxed,
completely free of inhibitions, so totally free of worries
that you perform at your best automatically.
if you can't get into The Zone, or if you have trouble staying in
The Zone, you can train your mind to get closer
to The Zone, and significantly improve your performance.
aspects of mental training that can help you get closer
to The Zone include controlling emotions, being calm and
positive, increasing concentration and focus, feeling relaxed
yet highly energized, and increasing confidence.
his ebook, "Why Is Sports Psychology Useful," Sports
Psychologist Patrick J. Cohn, Ph.D., makes a very
important and relevant statement:
athletes view the mental game and physical aspects
of their sport separately. There is a false belief
that athletes must first master “perfect” technique
or knowledge about the sport before working on mental
skills. My philosophy is that you cannot separate
the mental from the physical when it comes to motor
skills. Decisions, thoughts, images, and feelings
drive motor behavior."

I was born in Kingston, Jamaica. I moved to Toronto at the age
of 3. I played one year of Junior hockey for the Mimico Monarchs
of the O.H.A. Central Jr. B league. As the #2 recruited player
in North America, I turned down offers from 14 schools, including
Michigan, Michigan State, Maine and Cornell, to accept a full
scholarship from #1 ranked and defending NCAA Division 1 Frozen
Four Champion, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
As captain at RPI, recruited as a forward, I led all RPI defensemen
in scoring and was one of the top scoring defensemen in the ECACHL
as a Junior. . After a very bad experience in college with a
coach who constantly beat me up mentally even to the point of
black-balling me to the pro scouts, I was able to overcome the
odds and prove my critics and coach wrong by signing
a Free Agent contract with the Boston Bruins.
I later went on to play for the NY Islanders and
the Ottawa Senators.
Known mostly for my physical play, I went on to beat the odds
and scored an average of 19 goals per year throughout 10 professional
seasons in the NHL, AHL, IHL and WPHL.
my awards, I earned the IHL and WPHL Man of the Year Awards
for my outstanding community service and leadership. I
went on to coach for three years professionally. I have
been the Player Development Coordinator for the NHL’s San
Jose Sharks. I am now the Skills and Skating Coach
for the Toronto Maple Leafs. I have also
operated youth, adult and college level hockey schools
and clinics throughout North America, Canada and Europe.
I have taken my lifetime of ups and downs in the world of Hockey
and came to realize early in my career that it wasn’t his
physical game that needed work, but my mental game. I knew where
to find the answers and took full advantage of the resources
provided to me in the NHL and has fused these elements together
with my on-going training to put together a powerful system any
player of any age and ability can implement on a consistent basis.
You can have access to my powerful system right now.
you have been working hard on your physical game, but
you still find that you can not predict when you'll

system can help take you there.

during another game, then this system can help you.
you find that you play great in practice or in games
that do not hold a lot of significance, but you are not
playing at your best during important games.
for you the opposite is true; you have no problem "getting
up for" and performing great in the "big game," but
you play poorly against the easy teams. If you deal with
any of these challenges, then you need this course.

I was always looking for any extra edge to put

the years from your peers, your teammates, your coaches,

Revolutionary New System
would like to introduce you to a revolutionary new system
that will help you to completely re-program your subconscious
mind yourself. This system will first work to
clear all of your negative thoughts and beliefs, and
then it works to install the right positive thoughts
and beliefs- the same thoughts and beliefs that most
of the hockey players at the highest levels already have.
real power in this system comes from the proven subconscious
programming methods developed by the famed Bulgarian psychotherapist
Dr. Georgi Lozanov. The method is called suggestopedia.
This method has been used for the past 40 years in Accelerated
Learning courses all over the world.

method in the book "Superlearning 2000" by
Lynn Schroeder, Sheila Ostrander, and Nancy Ostrander.
The effectiveness of suggestopedia has been proven time and time
again in several University studies around the world. It
has been used to help students learn foreign languages
5 to 10 times faster than normal.
suggestopedia is used to clear negative patterns and
install the positive beliefs at the subconscious level-
the positive beliefs that are required to excel at any
sport. It is especially effective when used in athletics
that require peak mental states in order to reach full
potential- such as in Ice Hockey.
