Dr. Doug Gardner

Sport Psychology Consultant


Doug Gardner of ThinkSport will be presenting his new platform, MATTERS.

An acronym for Maturity, Awareness, Training, Trust, Resiliency and Stability.

The platform focuses on personal, professional and character development.

Dr. Gardner works with athletes and the decision-makers at the collegiate and professional levels in determining the athletes who possess personal and professional character on and off the field. ¬†With the advent of social media and a zero-tolerance society, coaches and athletic programs are taking a closer look at the individual, not just the athlete. ¬†Student-athletes and families need to understand the importance of how decisions and choices away from the field, as well as on the field impact one’s opportunity to secure scholarships and opportunities to play at the next level.


Philosophy behind services:

Dr. Gardner’s work with athletes is sport specific performance based and his goal is to teach atheltes how to become responsible and accountable for their actions inside and outside of the athletic arena.

Dr. Gardner teaches athletes to:

-Maximize practice and performance environments through purposeful and deliberate work.

-Develop a “Learner’s Mentality” and focus on the little things rather than the end result.

-Establish performance and practice related goals, game plans and routines.

-Make smart, strategic and analytical decisions in highly competitive settings.

-Prepare when making the transition into varsity, college or professional athletics.

-Balance academics, athletics and life outside sport.
