Welcome to slingshot coaching
Hi, WE ARE SHANNON & ERIN
Mental Performance Coaching works.
This isn't therapy. We teach every athlete to apply the latest neuroscience and sports psychology tools, strategies and concepts to help them perform their best, bounce back from challenges, and find joy in the process – both in their sport and in life.learn more
former D1 athletes who understand just how crucial an athlete’s mental strength and skills are to their overall performance and wellbeing.
As mental performance coaches, we help our athletes learn to manage emotions, increase resiliency, develop new perspectives, and ultimately rewire their brains so they can perform at their peak and enjoy their sport, and life, again.
We know first-hand the pressure, doubt, judgment, and challenges that come with being a high-level athlete. And because we’ve been there, and we know what’s possible, we believe that every athlete deserves to feel confident and capable. Coaching empowers our clients with the skills, perspectives, and tools they need to excel and find their joy again.

"Hi I’m Madelyn. I play water polo at CSU Fullerton. I would recommend life coaching to any athlete. The mental part of sport can be just as important as the physical part. Everyone needs a little help sometimes. I just feel life coaching is very helpful to overcome the mental aspects of sports."
– Madelyn, water polo at CSU Fullerton
Nate D. - Gonzaga University Baseball
"Mental training has been instrumental in helping to become a better athlete. By focusing on techniques, such as visualization, goal setting, and self-talk, I have been able to improve my performance and achieve my athletic goals at the collegiate level and beyond. Additionally, mental training has helped me to stay focused and motivated, even during tough training sessions or competitions. Overall, mental training has been an essential part of my development as an athlete, and I believe it can be beneficial for anyone looking to improve their performance."
Colin Roos - University of Utah Baseball
"Mental performance training has helped me compete and find success at a high level. It's one of the most overlooked aspects of preparation. College coaches and MLB scouts look for this part of your game, and every single one has asked how much time I've invested in it."
“I learned how to structure my goals as a game plan for my life, and how to have beneficial conversations with friends and family to gain their support in my achievements!”
- Grace H., Point Loma Volleyball Nazarene University
"When my son didn't make the first string players on his D3 college soccer team, he felt dejected and frustrated. Shannon helped him pick up the pieces of his soccer dream. With her help he learned to embrace his position and became a rock solid member of the team. He continues to draw on Shannon's wisdom and guidance in his life today as he pursues a career in veterinary medicine."
Tyson R. Spokane Falls CC Baseball
"This mental training has helped me stay calm in stressful situations, either on the mound or in real life. Before learning about the mental side I was very inconsistent with my emotions, but once I practiced breathing and many of the different cues to take my mind off the stress I became very calm. I am now better at controlling my emotions."
Dylan K. - Bushnell University Baseball
"Working with SPC has helped me tremendously with learning how to deal with the mental side of the game. I can relax and stay in the moment, and not try to do too much. This program will teach you what no other coach can. It is a side of sports that isn’t talked about enough. And Coach Erin has taught me so much that I still use to this day!"
“I walked away with the ability to have a lot more control with my mind when stuff isn’t going my way. The tool of saying the ABCs backward is one of my biggest helpers. I tend to forget what’s worrying me in 25-30 seconds after trying it.”
- Scotty H., Basketball & NWP Baseball Club

"Performance coaching has made a huge impact on my son’s life – both in sports and in other areas. As a parent, I can attest that mental training has made a huge impact on my son’s life – both in sports and in other areas. Dylan uses strategies he learned to battle through tough moments on the baseball field. When he was 14, he was extremely sick and in the hospital for over a week. I talked him through many scary moments using things learned through performance coaching. It was amazing to see how what he learned for baseball transferred to a time when he needed mental toughness most."
