College Recruitment

Many young athletes have a dream goal to be recruited and perform at the collegiate level. Ferranti Empowerment has successfully helped athletes overcome obstacles and pursue their dreams at various universities.  And while many clients are still young, Ferranti Empowerment is excited to help many more fulfill their academic and performance goals.

Regional National Identification

Ferranti Empowerment specializes in training youth athletes, which is why many of the clientele have a dream goal to make an elite team or be identified by regional and national programs prior to pursuing collegiate athletics. As such, Ferranti Empowerment has helped athletes advance to noteworthy programs, including US Youth Soccer ODP, Regional and National ID programs, International Soccer Academies, and highly nationally ranked Tennis players.  Amanda has also worked with professional organizations like the the NY Red Bulls in developing sport psychology education.

Confidence and Determination

For some clients, the most important goal of mental skills training is to feel more confident when performing. Although a more difficult construct to measure, the overwhelming majority of athletes who work with Ferranti Empowerment report feeling more confident and determined to achieve their goals and ultimately they are happier while participating.
