The group will meet at Dr. Granat’s offices in River Edge, New Jersey.

  5. Recovering from an injury
  6. Managing pressure from parents, coaches and the media
  7. Time and task management
  8. Anger management
  9. Choking
  10. Losing to teams or players they should beat
  11. Being intimidated by opponents
  12. Transferring to another school
  13. Loss of focus
  14. Loss of confidence
  15. Overthinking during competition
  16. Weight control
  17. Alcoholism and substance abuse
  18. Burn out
  19. Moving up from high school to college
  20. Moving up from college to the pros
  21. Mental training including self-hypnosis, visualization, meditation and guided imagery


During weekly meetings, athletes will share their concerns with Dr. Granat and with their fellow competitors.
