Who Am I And How Can I Help You?
My name is Lauren Penny. I am a former International Hockey Player and Performance Coach. I'm one of very few people that have not only reached the top level in hockey but also help players around the world reach their goals.
I help hockey players get noticed by teaching them how to be more confident, deal with pressure, overcome the fear of failure, handle frustration and how to become fitter, faster, stronger and more powerful for hockey, while also reducing your risk of injury.
Here are some pics of some of my international hockey memories, from scoring on my debut to the 2012 Olympic Games.
Here I am as a Performance Coach mentoring others
Here are just a few examples of these features
Working with Lauren and going through the training has been amazing and massively helpful. It has helped me improve the mental side of my game, being able to maintain a positive attitude throughout a match, control my emotions and understand how to prepare to get into the right mental state to perform to my true potential.
It has improved my game so much and my confidence has soared! This is the answer for anyone who wants to improve their game and take it to the next level.Ellie Rayer England u21 Player
It’s really hard to describe how great the experience of working with Lauren is and how much I have benefitted from the program. There are so many different aspects that are explored that that you’d never even think about before, and all of these have made big improvements in my game.
Lauren is fantastic! She is always there for you if you need anything and gives detailed analysis to help you improve. The weekly skype sessions are really useful as you get opinions of a national standard player who knows exactly what you’re going through and can therefore help you to improve.
I have learnt many tweaks to my skills that make a big difference as well as what to eat, which fitness exercises to do and how to structure them. All the modules are excellently put together and are so useful. My vision, confidence and mental toughness have improved so much since doing the program.Cameron Ley 15 years
I wanted to thank you for your help with Macy. First, she made the squad for her club championship team and this past weekend she attended the US National team tryouts. Macy’s confidence and focus were off the charts. I have never seen her play like that!!
I am so proud of her because she was handing it to college players! It was amazing to watch. You have helped her confidence in so many ways, thank you Lauren! Her confidence meter is full and she is back and unstoppable! She couldn’t have done this without you and what you have taught her.Jennifer Szukics Parent of 11 year old, USA
Working with Lauren has helped me to play better, my thinking is more positive and I now know exactly how to prepare for games and get into the zone.

Here Are Just A Few More Testimonials
Since joining I have improved my overall mental toughness which was the weakest part of my game. It was so inspiring talking to someone who has been there and done it themselves.
The mentorship gave me so much confidence which has allowed me to play better and my game has improved massively. I would recommend this to anyone looking to improve their game.Jordan Homann 13 years, now England u16 Player
What a fantastic program! I have really learnt a lot particularly on the mental side of the game. I am now a far more confident player which enables my skills to show through.
The periodised fitness program has been a god send as for me as it means I have more structure and know exactly what I need to do. The nutrition module was also useful and the guided visualisation audio downloads are amazing!
Overall I have more confidence on the ball, am better at pre scanning and my first touch and trapping has also improved. I’ve also improved my vision, mental toughness, speed and agility. For me as an older player this whole experience has been amazing and knowing that I am doing things right and seeing myself progress at my age and become a better player for my country is what it’s all about.Rachel Collier Welsh International Masters Player
I was so nervous to join because my confidence was so bad and I didn’t think anyone could help me. However Lauren made me realise that I did have the potential to achieve my goals and have since managed to make it through various selections.
If Lauren hadn’t helped me I absolutely 100% would not be playing to the standard that I am now. I used to be afraid of taking on challenges and would hide away but Lauren pulled me out of my comfort zone and I’ve achieved things I didn’t even think possible.
Not only has my game changed immensely but I also have a more positive outlook on life in general too.Lauren Piper 16 years
I had struggled with my mental approach for quite a number of years, despite credit and positive comments that I get from people. Everything that a hockey player could ask for is included in the course and covers all aspects of improving your game as well as things off the field like fitness and nutrition.
This program is something that can help anyone of any standard or any age to improve themselves in sport and life.Andrea Leader 18 years, South Africa
I started the course half way through a hockey season in which I started poorly and to show how effective this product is I can say I’ve accomplished my target of becoming player of the season within my team.
Without Lauren I’m positive that this wouldn’t have been achievable and I’m overjoyed with what I’ve experienced through participating in the programme.Jamie MacDonald Senior Club Player
