Chase Schaber

Professional Hockey Player - Fife Flyer - Elite League UK

“ There are some levels of hockey that require a more in-depth look at the mental aspects for how to prepare, how
to improve a professional skill set and how to contribute to your team under any situation. Coach Lorie has taught
me how to control the mind to control the body. I have reached many of my personal and professional goals with
Coach Lorie and Inner Mind Sports due to her knowledge and dedication to the sport of hockey. Playing in Europe
has given me the freedom to progress with amazing mental tools that work! I am excited to work along with her
and also gain guidance from her for my own mentorship business called “Pursue Hockey.com”. Coach Lorie is a
winner in all aspects of developing a player. Believe me you will love this training!"

Hockey Goalie

Steven Altman

Hockey Goaltender & Developmental Coach
Soderhamn Ljusne HC

“I have been training with Coach Lorie privately for the past 3 seasons. Since we began working together my game
has improved tremendously over the years. From my senior year in college where I was nominated to both our
regional, conference and league All-Star teams as well as earning as position for the DVCHC European All-Star
Selects.
 
Last season I was the starting goaltender for Orsa IK in division 3 (pro hockey) and this year will be playing with
Soderhamn Ljunse HC in division 2. I believe that all hockey athletes would benefit from her unique perspective on
improving an individuals mental abilities as a whole. The coping skills, refinement of movement and understanding
the intricate components of the game have been invaluable.”

Dan Spence

Professional Goaltender - Goalie Coach - President 360 Goaltending 

“ I worked with Coach Lorie to improve my mental game as a professional athlete. It is the most important aspect
of what we do as goalies. Lorie was able to help me make critical decisions at the right times in terms of my goals,
working with my agents, planning my professional skills with strong mental tools that stayed with me for life. Her
skills in neuroscience are far beyond the normal aspect of sports, she build champions.” 

Colin Cooper

Goalie, Mount Royal University - Men's Hockey Program 2017

"Coach Lorie has been a blessing, she helped me grow in so many areas of my life. My journey with hockey has been anything but easy, being able to fight through adversity was something Coach Lorie and I worked through countless times. We did this by building a foundation for mental toughness that I continue to work at. Coach Lorie has the mind and tools to help any athlete become the best version of themselves they can be. I would not be the athlete I am today if it were not for the time spent working on the mental side of my game as a varsity goal tender with Inner Mind Sports."

Dayna Owen

University of Alberta - Goalie Women’s Hockey Program

“Coach Lorie has taught me so much, it is hard to express into words. I wanted to perform well under stressful
conditions at a high level in which I controlled the play from my net. As a female goalie at times the shots are not
hard but there are several attempts. So my rebound control had to match the play. I have trained mentally with
Lorie for seven seasons. One technical lesson with her is like five lessons on the ice. It is worth the time, effort and
energy to train the brain to see the puck at all times. I am learning the fine art of tracking and my game just
continues to improve.Thanks COACH, brain science works.”

(soccer) football career around and I have been traveling the world doing what I love to do. She is a fantastic

Golf

David Addison

Alberta Golf Amateur - Golf Coach Global Sports Academy - Calgary CANADA

“ I came to Coach Lorie feeling like I have a lot of natural ability at the game, but a passion to get better in
competitive environments. I am a 1 handicap golfer and the two previous years I tried to quality for the Alberta
Open and Alberta Am, shooting in the 80’s at both of those events each year. Frustrated and working hard on my
physical swing, I couldn't figure out why things felt so good when I would go out and play on the course day-today,
but physically felt so different under pressure.

Coach Lorie provides an incredible and unique learning environment, her energy is beyond infectious, and no
matter what time of day you meet with her you feel as if they most important thing in her world is your
development and success. Upon walking in to her studio everything is tailor-made to your experience, the previous
session is on her white board to reminder you where you’ve been and a path is laid out to see where you’re going.
Her ability to connect other experiences and activities in your life to help you understand the subject is truly
helpful as some of the material is challenging and thought provoking. Each session is a blend of soul searching and
physical tasks that connects your thoughts to physical space and time and allows you to feel a connection to your
swing and clubs in a way hard to describe in words. Much of what I realized was that pre-swing I had a routine
physically, but mentally my thoughts where everywhere. We created 3 commanding words as I stepped in to putt
(which I felt was my biggest area of improvement) that allowed my brain to compute what it needed to do.

Line, Tempo, Speed. We dissected those words so that my brain knew exactly what those three things represented
and what it needed to do. On course analysis and video is also included, focusing on specifics like pre-shot mental
routine and post shot analysis. Many of the shots were videoed in a non-obtrusive manner that allowed me to
watch from an observer view and make physical corrections, but also see myself in space in time. Everything that is
accomplished each session is compiled in a summery email that is sent out always in a timely fashion to be
reviewed between sessions.

I once again tried to qualify for those same two tournaments this spring, this time having not worked on my
physical swing much, but only having those mental lessons over the off-season. My results were a top 10 in Open
qualifying and top 5 in Amateur qualifying. I also proceeded to make my first ever cut at the Amateur tournament,
playing well the second round when the pressure was on after a shaky first.

Without any hesitation at all I would recommend anyone to try the incredible experience and expertise of Inner
Mind Sports if you are a young golfer looking to pursue golf at the highest level, or a weekend warrior looking for
bragging rights in your foursome. Coach Lorie is one of the most incredible individuals I have ever met and I truly
look forward to continue working with her in the future!”
