"I find that (the GPS) program manages to translate cognitive-behavioral psychology into terms that athletes and coaches can understand. More importantly, the athletes who participate have the opportunity to learn and practice psychological skills that they can use for their whole lives."
Leslie Bourne, Ph.D. Chief , Division of Behavioral Medicine, Fallon Clinic. Worcester, MA.

"The skills taught by the GetPsychedSports curriculum are important life skills reflecting recognized cognitive behavioral psychology concepts that have been demonstrated to be stepping stones to success."
Matthew Jerram, Ph.D. Instructor, Department of Psychiatry and Division of Women's Health, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA.

"I find the GetPsychedSports.org Curriculum & Text, Players' Edition to be well-designed and based on scientifically supported strategies that meets important needs in youth and school sports in America."
Dr. Louis Kruger, Ph.D., Director, Northeastern University School Psychology Program, Boston, MA.

"The Curriculum & Text offered by GetPsychedSports.org introduces the techniques and strategies of sport psychology in a manner that will maximize the quality of the sport experience for high school student athletes as well as provide them with the necessary life skills to excel in any endeavor they choose."
Dr. Grayson Kimball, D.P.E., AAASP-certified sport psychology consultant, Educational Director of GetPsychedSports.org, workshop facilitator, private practice, Brookliine, MA.

"Although winning and achievement are important aspects of competition, sports are part of a school program and have to have specific educational goals for the many students who participate. Having a written curriculum can only help students and coaches understand what those goals are. Only a very small percentage, if any, will make sport competition a career, but the hundreds that do participate should benefit by integrating educational goals with that of a competitive athletic program."
Michael Jellinek, MD President of Newton Wellesley Hospital and child psychiatrist, Newton, MA.

"By the time of high school graduation, some 80% of students will have participated at some time in an organized sports program, whether in or out of school. The opportunity to teach the mental skills which held develop character in a competitive and structured sports environment is one that should not be missed. I support the concept of a written sports psychology curriculum on youth and school sports teams."
Bruce Masek, PhD.,Chief of Outpatient Child and Pediatric Psychiatry Department, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA.

"Both the mental and physical health of students participating in organized competitive sports will improve when parents and the organization consider coaches as teachers. What do we require in teachers? (1) That they are educated and thoroughly know their subject, (2) That they have a specified curriculum with goals, and (3) That they understand how children learn."
Michael Goldberg, MD, Chief of Orthodpedics, Tufts New England Medical Center. Boston, MA.

"Mitch Lyons's program is the antidote to apathy, anxiety, confusion, and many other problems that can plague school-aged children. His approach is up-beat, thoughtful, and fun! He really cares about kids and it shows."
Pamela L. Enders, Ph.D, private practice, Cambridge, MA.

"The GetPsychedSports.org curriculum is a good start toward improving the values that our children learn through participation in sports. Mitch Lyons, the founder of GetPsychedSports.org, Inc., is passionate and tireless in his efforts to make sports fun and a positive learning experience."
Mark F. Poster, M.D., private practice, Newton, MA.
