EFT Power Training – For Sports Teams
What is a Championship Worth to You and Your Team?
EFT Power Training is the first organization to form teams of expert coaches and psychologists to maximize sports performance—delivering big and measurable results in an amazingly short time. EFT Power Training performed the first scientific study of EFT for sports performance with the Oregon State University basketball teams. The team receiving EFT did 38% better at free throws than the control team after treatment.
“EFT helped the pitchers get their heads out of the way so they can do what their body is trained to do. We had 6-7 guys out of a 10-man rotation using the methods.”

Dan Spencer had therapist Greg Warburton, LPC, introduce EFT to Division I college baseball in mid-sesaon 2006. With key players using EFT, Oregon State went on to win the College Baseball World Series in 2006, and then won an unprecedented second consecutive championship in 2007. These same methods are now available to help your team too! EFT Power Training has a proven track record of producing huge and immediate performance gains with athletes.

“Former Arizona Cardinals linebacker Seth Joyner said EFT has helped him, not only with golf but with his daily life. ‘It’s something you can use for everything,” Joyner said. ‘It’s a tremendous tool that I wish I had known about a long time ago.'”

“I am so amazed with the effectiveness of EFT that I’ve made it as important a part of my baseball routine as throwing or running or lifting weights. I have more consistency, better command of my pitches, and I accomplish more in big games with less effort. Using EFT, I found the mental edge that raises an athlete from average to elite.”

The EFT Power Training process with a sports team is an exhilarating experience. It lasts a week. Here’s what happens, day by day:
“I kept shooting well…doing EFT the rest of the day. I hit the dead center of the bulls eye. It was a photo finish. I was excited and surprised to discover I set a new state record. I continue to use EFT every time I shoot any kind of competition and have shared it with other archers who have loved it.”

DAY ONE: Introduction and Baseline Measurements. A team of experts arrives: therapists, coaches and statisticians. They introduce the team to the core concepts of Energy Psychology, and explain how changing the energy around performance can produce dramatic improvements in strength, precision and flexibility. They then have the team work out, and obtain objective measurements of the team’s performance on standard tests for their particular sport. This provides a baseline against which subsequent progress can be measured.
DAY TWO: Individual Athlete Treatments. Each athlete receives intensive individual therapy sessions, and homework to do between each session. Underlying emotional issues that affect performance are identified, shifted, and performance gains measured. Athletes receive Energy Psychology methods that are individualized to address their particular problems.
DAY THREE: Performance Related Treatment. On day three, issues that came up on Day Two are analyzed and corrected. Blocks are identified and removed. Self-sabotaging beliefs are brought to light and replaced with affirmative new beliefs. Performance gains are “tapped in” with Energy Psychology approaches designed to create muscle memories of peak performance.
DAY FOUR: Support Staff Treatment and Teamwork Maximization. Day four is about all the people around the team, and producing a harmonious and supportive environment for the team. Coaches, assistant coaches, and all other support members for the team are also treated. Also, the team as a whole identifies areas in which it may be blocked, or not functioning well, and these energy patterns are shifted so that the team can flow smoothly together. The group of therapists works on the team as a whole to maximize performance, and to set up a pattern of open receptivity to future coaching instructions from the team’s regular coaches.
DAY FIVE: The team’s performance is measured again, together and as single athletes, to show the team how far they have come since day one. On the final day, goals are set for the use of Energy Psychology to resolve future performance blocks, and to cement future performance gains.
“Lynn Francis has been working on curing the yips in golfers with…Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). Mike Rotheram and Dr Mark Bawden, researchers at Sheffield Hallam University, were that intrigued by Lynn’s apparent success that they asked her to team up with them to trial her treatment…using the latest golf putting technology from SAM Motion Analysis. They…did five data collections at the University following intense treatments. Mike concluded: ‘This is undoubtedly the most effective treatment I have seen so far.'”
“EFT can remove mental, emotional, physical, and mechanical blocks so that athletes can perform at their highest level possible. There isn’t any other tool or technique out there that I’m aware of that can produce results like this.”

”Overall, the team has improved 87% in free throw shooting percentage since learning EFT. Before EFT, they were making a dismal 40 out of 100 as a team. Since applying EFT the team has played 8 games and in that 8 games they skyrocketed to a team average of 75 out of 100.”

”For the International Championship I did EFT tapping before the race and also mentally while racing, and finished first with more than two minutes advantage over the runner-up, breaking the 9 mile overall record.”

“Golf is a game of how you react mentally. One bad shot or hole can ruin a round. EFT has improved how I think on the course, my calmness and my concentration..”
