Mental Performance Coach

Stu supports the development of Next Level coaches and athletes on the mental aspects of high-performance through science-based and success proven methods.

His topics include: Creating consistently confident mindsets; effective focus; overcoming and responding to challenge and setbacks (including injury); transition to the “next-level”; motivation; Growth-Mindset; and other performance psychology team trainings.

The guiding principals of his performance program are education and application.  Both coaches and athletes must understand and be able to apply his proven systems in the most high-pressure settings.

At Next Level we implement the exact systems and fundamentals that he uses with his collegiate and professional teams and clients.  Though he resides in Massachusetts, Stu works with Next Level clients through Skype and FaceTime and periodically travels to the Harrisburg area to meet face-to-face with clients and present to players, parents and coaches.

While Stu works with players and teams from a wide variety of sports he has done exemplary work with the University of Maryland’s Women’s Basketball Team.  To learn more about Stu’s work with them see the testimonial, article and videos below.


Brenda Frese, Head Coach University of Maryland Basketball (2006 National Champions; ACC Champions: 2009, 2012; Final Four 2014 and 2015; Big 10 Coach of the Year 2015, Big 10 Champions 2015; 2002 AP National Coach of the Year) states,

“We hired Stu Singer to work with our team and almost immediately saw it pay dividends. First and foremost, he’s someone you can trust. Secondly, we spend so much time on our player’s physical development, but sometimes that can’t flourish until they learn the necessary mental skills that help them deal with everything that can cloud their thought process. Once Stu starts working with them, it helps lift the fog that prevents players from seeing what’s really worth focusing on. I highly recommend that all athletes take advantage of Stu’s training if they are looking to truly maximize their potential”.
