Take it to the Next Level
Finding the Keys to a Higher Level of Performance
Those who reach their potential in any sport come to practice on a mission. They know exactly what they're striving for in terms of performance and are totally engaged in the process of getting there. Dreams and good intentions alone don't get you very far. Athletes agree with Rick that the vast majority of them are going through the motions in practice waiting for time to pass. They want the results, but don't do what it takes to achieve them.
* What are the keys to sustaining the motivation necessary to take our performance to the next level?
* What happens if we learn to celebrate progress, not just if we win?
* What happens to your intensity, enthusiasm, focus and determination if things aren't going well?
* What are the obstacles that prevent many from finding out what they are capable of doing?
Rick Rassier writes from several perspectives: an athlete, musician, teacher, volleyball coach, challenge course director, teamwork performance coach and motivational speaker. For more than 20 years Rick traveled around the country as a "One Man Volleyball Team" competing alone against six-person teams. In school assemblies, he used this platform to share a drug-free motivational message. When he turned 50, he took up the extreme sport of freestyle kayaking in order to go through the learning process and challenge himself to keep living the message he brings to others. He never lets up on his mission to improve his performance. Rick works with over 200 teams each year from all sports. Experience the life-changing message through his personal stories, examples from his experience with teams and be challenged to take your life to the NEXT LEVEL! Finally, a book for athletes at all levels!
Opening this book is like opening the doors to a higher level of performance. Although it is written with the high school and college athlete or coach in mind, this book is for anyone who desires to take their life to the next level. If you tend to procrastinate, this book will give you a boost in the right direction.
What do people say about Rick's training...
"Our experience working with Rick Rassier's Teamwork Training program has been a game changer for us. This important development program during our preseason has given us an early edge in developing our team chemistry and commitment and that edge has prevailed for the whole season. Rick has a way of utilizing simple, but motivating challenges that inspire our student athletes to work together towards a common goal and then reflect on the experience in a positive way giving insight into why things worked or didn't work. He then clearly relates those insights to our specific sport experiences. Our team looks forward to it every year because they learn so much and its really fun!!!
- Meg Stephenson, Head Coach, Minnesota Women's Gymnastics -
"Rick has a unique way of relating to young people. He makes an impact on them in a way that is fun and promotes all the intangible qualities that we as coaches hope to instill in our players. I also believe his program makes an impact beyond athletics and helps young people think about decision-making and skills for their lives." -Matt Urbanek, Varsity Boys Basketball Coach, Jordan High School
"Not only did your training change my perspective about practice as a college athlete, it changed my perspective about life!" Gustavus Adolphus College Athlete - Swim & Dive Team.
"The guys absolutely loved your program! Many of my athletes approached me to tell me how much they enjoyed it. One asked for your info. so he could pass the experience along to his high school coach. Thanks again! I will recommend your service and sing it's praises. Your contribution will be with us as our program works towards our 24th consecutive championship!" Steve Mathre, Head Coach, St. Thomas University Track & Field
