What NHL Coaches Say About Mental Toughness:
As you move up the competitive ladder, skill can only take you so far. And at some stage, your work ethic, your focus, and your determination has to take over. As the pyramid narrows at the top, the ones that are left standing are the ones that have a certain level of mental toughness.
- Ken Hitchcock, NHL Coach
Part of the mental game is understanding that hockey is a roller coaster. A lot of players give up before they realize how close they were to the finish line. Everyone is trying to get better and sometimes you just don’t have the enthusiasm to do the work. That's mental toughness. You have to find the strength, determination, and discipline to get through those tough days.
- Barry Trotz, NHL Coach
Dedication to your craft is important if you want to be a hockey player. It means sacrifice and toughness to do what it takes to be the best player you can be. If you want to be a hockey player then you do all the little things that make a difference.
- Bruce Boudreau, NHL Coach

The mental aspect in hockey is every bit as important as the physical game. Most athletes devote endless hours developing their physical abilities yet only a very small percentage of players do anything to develop their mental skills. Being at the top of your game requires both physical and mental sharpness; by utilizing both sets of skills, you can have a cutting edge over your opponent.

Grit allows a player to do whatever it takes to grow their skills and endure the long, hard climb to playing elite hockey. Without grit, there is little motivation to "push through the wall." Without grit, there is no drive to do the difficult things or to endure the painful training necessary to play at the highest levels.

In Hockey Grit, Grind, & Mind, Sport Psychology Consultant, Level 5 USA Hockey Coach, and Peak Performance Coach Kevin Willis shows players, coaches, and parents how to:

  • increase the consistency in a players game
  • step up in pressure situations
  • play with more confidence and poise
  • persevere when others are giving up
  • crystallize their vision of where they want to go in hockey
  • stand out and catch the eye of coaches and scouts

With the tools, insights, and strategies to help you train and compete like the pros, you're about to take your game-and your grit- to a whole new level.
