No two athletes are alike. We have helped many who range from school age to college. Athletes have one thing in common, they are competitive and wish to do their personal best. On our Instagram site you will see a number of very cool young athletes making their way to tremendous opportunities as student athletes. Coach
✨Then & Now Feature✨
Our first Inner Mind Sports athlete is Steele Bass from High River, Alberta.
Steele started formally in hockey goaltending at age 7. Even before that age, he had the interest to be in net, simply because he was up for the challenge. Five years later, Steele is showing incredible progress as he works daily on the craft of being in the 4X6’. Steele explains that he loves being the backbone of his team, he feels the position is challenging but very rewarding. When he is able to make an amazing save there is a rush of pride when the crowd goes wild with applause. He has words of advice in which he wants all goalies to have fun, do your personal best and to put in the work. Steele has created several amazing Instagram posts and drills to follow along. His philosophy is to use the Inner Mind RESET system, to become the best TRACKER of all time. Here is a direct quote from Steele on Mental Training for Goalies: “I never thought a game like hockey could have another whole side to it, but it does. Mental training is as important as physical training. And for me it was easily the deciding factor to the question. Do you want to be better? And I said,” Yes”. It was a very hard change going from zero mentality to being a mental thinker. But the changes in my game just kept getting better from being able to reset fast to make the next save.”
Coach Lorie would like to give Steele a big shout out for being a determined and dedicated athlete and great student at school. This is a hard working, polite young man who really will make a difference in this world no matter what he does! Great person, great goalie. Inner Mind Sports wishes him all the best as we support his mental training for a future in high level hockey.

Goalie: Dayna Owen University of Calgary Dinos
Dayna Owen is a long standing Inner Mind Sports GAL Tender! Her passion for the hockey net began at age 8. At this early age, once she had the opportunity to take her turn in net, she never left the 4X6’. Dayna’s natural athletic ability is demonstrated on ice with amazing attention to detail and also in the gym. Out of all our Inner Mind Goalies, Dayna has demonstrated her dedication and determination to make high level hockey her passion. She is a proud team member of the University of Calgary Women’s Hockey Team. Her future plans are to finish out her USPORT eligibility and win another Varsity National championship. Dayna says: “For myself, Mental training has added consistency and technicality to my game. It has gotten rid of any doubts I may have and has made my reflexes quicker and movements quicker. Mental training has taken my game to a level I didn’t even know was possible and I push every day with my mental training to see where it can take me.” Coach Lorie suggests mental training will be the hardest thing you do for your goalie training, but incredible people like Dayna Owen make it appear as a normal and seamless part of being all in. We salute Dayna as an outstanding person, student and goalie athlete. Anyone who has a pink frosted donut on her mask is our kind of athlete! Go Dayna GO!

Owen became interested in being a goalie as early as Novice. He has never looked back because he is a natural between the pipes! Owen believes that every puck is an opportunity for tracking and giving his team a great chance to victory. He believes you never give up or give in. Owen has been known to battle under the final minutes of a game. He says: “Mental training has taught me how to look at the puck, net, sheet of ice and game differently. But most of all it has taught me how to positively reset after an error. To think more about my own ratio. Always striving for 10:1.” Right now Owen is dedicated to his fitness training as well. He says the sky is the limit as his ultimate dream of course is to play pro hockey. Coach Lorie calls Owen, Mr. O, because he truly has embraced the Inner Mind Sports science of our program. This is a hard working, smart goalie who will go far! Great Job Mr. O and what a snappy dresser!

WELCOME TO INNER MIND METAWEWIN!
This is a NEW section for Inner Mind Sports, as we would like to promote the holistic concepts and teachings of our Métis’ family as well as our Indigenous brothers and sisters.
At Inner Mind Sports we meet the athlete, performer and student where they are at. We wish to give you this information with no barriers, just proper research, care and attention to details.
We will add sections to this part of the website for Indigenous people who wish to follow sport not only as a way to play and be healthy but also sport as a mental health practise as a competitor, both amateur or professional.
Indigenous sport participation ranges from passions of traditional games to modern sports both individual and team. Coach Lorie has coached many varieties of sport and can cover all 95 skills that make up an athlete. Would you like to learn them?
First recognize the traditional circles of life as your bases. Of course the Olympic Rings are a symbol of this, but true humanity in sports is to learn lessons from our teachers, coaches and elders. You will spend a lifetime journey learning about love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth. ARE YOU READY!
Let’s start with a story.
This is not my story, it is a story in the life of a young athlete, a runner in fact named Rosalie Fish and her quest. She was brave and made a difference with the support/mentorship of another amazing athlete called Jordan Marie Daniel. I wish to tell you before you read this that running creates freedom in the spirit and boldness in the heart. You will find in this story, if we stand up and protect our loved ones we can find ways to hold on to memories of those who have gone. This story is about sport, but more about the protection of Indigenous Women around the world. I hope you will be inspired by Rosalie.
