Optimize Mind Performance is excited to announce the signing of the University of Louisville Athletics as their founding partner.

The Cardinals are paving the way for mental performance programs within the highly competitive NCAA market. Through a recent partnership with UofL Health, the UofL Athletic Department now has five full-time mental performance professionals. OMP’s platform will further assist the mental performance team’s delivery of a world-class mental skills program to their student athletes and coaches.

The platform will allow the Cardinals’ mental performance coaches to amplify their voice to their athletes, receive insights and analytics, and ultimately provide them with a much-needed digital solution to their athletes complimenting their in-person sessions.

The Cards will also gain access to OMP’s extensive library of content featuring some of the world’s leading mental skills coaches and elite level athletes.

Optimize Mind Performance will be used across all of Louisville’s athletic programs, including its nationally ranked football, men’s soccer, women’s field hockey, women’s volleyball programs.  Furthermore, OMP will be used to support local high school athletes supported by UofL Health – Sports Medicine.

“Louisville has placed great emphasis on the importance and benefits of mental skills training from both an athlete performance and wellbeing perspective,” Optimize Mind Performance’s Founder and CEO Jack Preddey said.

“We are delighted that Dr. Nichols and her team have recognized the need for a digital mental skills offering for athletes so that they can further work on this crucial element in their game in an accessible and engaging manner.”

Dr. Katie Nichols, Director of Mental Performance at Louisville said: “We pride ourselves on our care for the performance of all our student-athletes. OMP provides our department with a unique platform that will assist us in delivering our mental performance voices to coaches and players.

“Our ability to assign and recommend content to our athletes outside of our face-to-face sessions through the OMP platform, especially when they are on the road during the busy NCAA schedule, is a game-changer. Our sport psychologists work with hundreds of athletes at any one time and OMP allows them to have consistent and meaningful touchpoints with them. We look forward to working with OMP as their founding partner and assisting them to shape this much-needed product.”
