I Got Mind Inc was founded in 2012. It was formerly Synergy in Motion since 2008. The idea Bob had came to light while coaching kids and searching for answers to his depression and self/substance abuse that continued after his 10 year professional playing career.
The young athletes were experiencing very similar issues. As were the coaches and parents. A world that Bob grew up was all of the sudden much clearer. As he began having conversations with all of the above, he started to use his experiences in the game to help them heal and manage. He became educated in the Life Coaching realm and learned how to use his life experiences and turn it into content that he could use to teach.
Since 2008 Bob and I Got Mind have worked with thousands of youth. In schools, sports and personal coaching. He has worked with hundreds of organizations throughout North America, in the sporting world and business.
I Got Mind means awareness, compassion, focus, determination, to live the life we expect.
Fer Sure means, agreement, commitment, confidence, and a positive attitude.
Hope you’ll join the team by coming to or booking an event with us! Fer Sure!
Being an athlete can be a huge challenge. Managing all that is required and having little to no experience to do so can cause, self doubt, inconsistent performance, stress, anxiety attacks, or quitting.
I Got Mind is all about being able to teach the athletes how to control the only thing they can, themselves. We focus on teaching them about themselves and how to they can change, grow, learn, fail with confidence and ultimately, succeed.
Our Success Strategies program is exceptional and life altering for the athlete. It teaches values and lessons that create a solid foundation for growth. It teaches how to manage their self confidence. It show them how to make a change, and why in certain areas they need to more prepared than usual.
(definition) – Coach – a person who trains an athlete or a team of athletes.
Trains – to develop or form the habits, thoughts, or behavior of (a child or other person) by discipline and instruction.
A coach is so much more than the word says. If you see the trains definition, that is truly what we as coaches should be doing. The issue with coaches is the instruction is unclear to the athlete for a number of reasons and when not executed properly, the discipline kicks in and can cause fear, terror, and resentment in the way it is delivered.
Each player today is different. The generations are much different and this causes issues. What seems like common sense becomes very uncommon!
We hold coaching clinics for all sports. We focus on communication, understanding the perception of the athletes and how to create buy in. Each coach will understand the mindsets of the athletes and given tools to use to get the most out of their athletes. For the athletes benefit.

Every parent when asked “Why do you put your kids in sports?” answers in the some of the following answers.
- To have fun
- To learn how to be a part of a team
- To develop work ethic
- To stay our of trouble
- To learn how to be successful
The issue is this doesn’t happen as much as it could. We as parents get wrapped up, twisted around and frustrated with the process.
The organizations can be a challenge, the coaches can create chaos with their words, and the athlete can under perform and seem disinterested. And this means you have to spend time, money, and energy on trying to deal with and fix it.
There is something more that sports are about. It is about falling and getting up. It is about learning how to deal with bad teammates. It is about dealing with a boss (coach) who is very difficult to deal with. And lastly, how to perform to the best of their abilities while all of this is going on.
However because we don’t know how to navigate these stormy waters we get as wrapped up as the kids and begin to not enjoy the experience similar to all the other parties.
We have parent seminars for groups when requested. It is powerful to get the parents and athletes in a room and talk about the issues, and most importantly work together to find solutions. If the HOME TEAM can work together to solve problems, then each member of the HOME TEAM can go play on other team successfully.
