Restoic for Teams is a technology enabled solution that changes the way mental training is implemented.

As a result, the mental component of sport performance has become increasingly popular amongst high school teams, clubs, universities and olympic level athletes. One problem remained: few teams had the resources to hire a sport psychologist or the knowledge to execute an effective mental training program.

In an effort to solve this challenge and provide coaches and athletes with an easy-to-use approach, Restoic for Teams was developed.

Built in collaboration with leading sport psychologists and world-class athletes, Restoic’s custom online dashboard (Restoic Smart Coach) offers 4, 8, and 12-week training programs with a step by step guide for coaches to train the minds of their swimmers, not just their muscles.

  • 4-Week Program – For teams seeking an introduction to sport psychology.
  • 8-Week Program – For teams seeking sport psychology and meditation benefits.
  • 12-Week Program – For teams seeking a holistic approach to mental health and performance.

Restoic has established itself as a proven and trusted resource for coaches and teams at all levels by applying cognitive-behavioral methods to performance enhancement.

“As a coach, I’m constantly looking for innovative ways to achieve peak performance when it matters the most. I highly recommend Restoic to any team, coach or athlete looking to improve their confidence, composure, and overall performance,” says Teri McKeever.

Jeff Dugdale goes on to explain, “I work with a company called Restoic and many other resources because as a coach you cannot get surprised. You have to be ahead of the game, you have to be aware, you have to ask questions, and you have to look for inconsistencies in behaviors. As coaches, we usually know our student-athletes better than they know themselves, so we have to be able to have tough conversations.”

“I highly recommend Restoic. This platform is a big asset to my team’s preparation and it does an effective job of educating my athletes on the importance of mental training as a competitive advantage,” says Marko Djordjevic.
