Passionate about improving the sport of soccer in Colombia, Club Deportivo Buenaventura FC and Mental Training, Inc. will work together to introduce mental training to their semi-professional teams.

Dallas, TX – Mental Training, Inc. (MTI) has been recruited by Club Deportivo Buenaventura FC, a semi-professional soccer club in Colombia, to provide a complete mental training program to a group of 50 of their soccer players and 6 of their coaches. The Club currently has two teams, the U-17 and U-19 age groups, that play in the semi-pro league and compete at the national level who will be using the online mental training program.

The Club will participate in a tournament, which lasts until November that was organized by the national soccer authority in Colombia. The Colombia Football Federation established this important competition and received support from the private sector with the intent of discovering new soccer talent in Colombia. The primary focus of their efforts is for Colombia to obtain entry in to the upcoming 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
To assist with the team’s mental training, MTI will use several of their innovative and cutting edge online mental training services, including their Online Mental Trainer and Certified Mental Coach course. Each of these tools are specially designed to educate, evaluate, enhance, and monitor consistent, focused sport performance. Additionally, one of MTI’s bilingual Certified Mental Trainers will support the teams in their mental training so that the dreams and aspirations of these athletes from Buenaventura, Colombia may be realized.

In reference to working with Club Deportivo Buenaventura FC, MTI’s Certified Mental Trainer, Eder Gongora-Gomez says that, “We look forward to continue to share MTI’s knowledge with the world. Through our work with the Club, we hope to change the way modern athletes train and to continue to develop and promote the complete player model; Technical, Tactical and Mental.”
