Our goal is to help kids TRAIN THEIR BRAIN, LIKE THEY TRAIN THEIR GAME.
Next Level Mentality will cover a series of 10 mental performance topics consisting of a video and facilitator guide for each topic. The videos are targeted for kids ages 9-14, and the facilitator guides are targeted towards coaches and educators, to help them teach this content to their youth.
- Each video episode features tips and resources from a mental performance coach, personal insight from NBA and WNBA players, and associated warmup and basketball drills.
- The facilitator guides will help deepen your knowledge of the subject matter as well as provide additional resources and ideas for both individual and group activities.
- Check back here for a new episode every week!

**The health and safety of the entire youth basketball community – including players, parents, coaches and staff – remains paramount. Any in-person activities should be conducted in accordance with local and state guidelines. We encourage all coaches and educators to continue to consult with medical experts and local officials to determine the health and safety guidelines that must be met when conducting in-person activities, if deemed safe to proceed.
