From our December 5th, 13th, 20th, & 23rd 2018 ELEVATE Program in Alexandria, VA for Lee District Basketball Players, Coaches, and Parents
Thank you for including me in ELEVATE this past fall. Frank Garza and his colleague (and son) provided great insight into how the mind works and how I can use that information to gain an advantage for my 5th grade county select team.
While I plan to incorporate aspects of Franks teachings with my team as the season goes on, I did use the breathing exercises at halftime of a recent game. While we were winning a close game by 5 points, I felt my team did not have their usual focus. We were giving good effort but missing easy shots and making unforced turnovers. Rather than discuss X's and O's during the intermission, I had my players refocus by utilizing the breathing exercises demonstrated by Guru Ganesha Khalsa during one of the ELEVATE seminars. While I can't scientifically prove the method helped, I can say that our team immediately took a 20 point lead in the third quarter.
I look forward to incorporating some of the concepts from ELEVATE as we progress through the season.
Thanks again to you and Frank for including me in the seminar.
-Paul Diffenbach, Head Coach
