Corson has helped my game so much. Before this season I wasn’t confident with the puck, didn’t shoot the puck and was very hard on myself. If I had one mistake that would often be it for my mental game the rest of the night I would be so hard on myself and it ruined games for me. Corson’s training has helped my mental game and my confidence levels to the point where I am now able to make plays with the puck consistently, shoot the puck without hesitation and not get down on myself during games.

The Next Level Academy’s mental programming has helped me completely level up as a player. Before starting the program I didn’t really understand the type of player I was and like most thought they were a “skill guy” and I wasn’t that successful in games during this time. Once starting and completing the mental shift part of the program I can confidently identify the type of player I am which is a physical power forward and use my strengths properly. My identity shift has allowed me to enter a flow state in games where I don’t second guess my decisions and make appropriate plays at the right times. A result I am proud of from this past season is my performance during the playoffs, I felt that I took my game to another level and I feel I left off on a high note that’s going to translate well into next season. I highly recommend the Next Level Academy, it’s a community of athletes that are like-minded and have the same passion to improve.

Working with Corson for the past 3 years has changed the way I view my development as a hockey player. He has helped me implement a weekly development system that checks all physical and mental boxes that I need to be a high end hockey player. This eliminates any anxiety I may have about my hockey career because I know that if I stick to the system weekly I will be a very good player in the long run. He provides constructive feedback on the videos I submit. Finally; working with Corson helped me have a positive mindest and training while dealing with 9 month injury. With his help I am on track to pursue my hockey goals.

What specific aspect of our coaching program has had the biggest impact on your performance?
For me something I’ve always struggled with is overthinking. Working with Corson, he’s able to break down what is at the core of my overthinking and helps me focus on what I can control. Also, Corson always finds a way to explain things that give me a different perspective and allow me to shift my mindset. The ability to run thoughts and problems by someone who truly cares about my success is priceless and is what has had the biggest impact on me.
How has our coaching program improved my mental game and how has this affected your overall performance?
Before working with Corson, my mental game was the worst part of my game. Everyone always talks about how the mental game is the majority of the game but how come no one ever trains it? Since I've started working with Corson I’d say I spend the most time training mentally and this has led to teammates, coaches and my parents telling me that my mental game is the best part of my game. On the ice I’ve seen huge progress and I feel myself getting better each game and practice, which is something I can’t say I felt before working with Corson.
Can you share a particular moment or result that you were proud of, which you attribute to the Next Level Academy Coaching?
My whole life I’ve always wanted to give everything to being the best hockey player I can be. But the thing holding me back was thinking more about how people would call me weird or dislike me because of my obsession with this sport. On a coaching call with Corson we truly dove into thetis and I had a moment of realization that I was ready to go all in. With the encouragement that Corson gave me, I can confidently say that was a turning point in my life and since that day I’ve been giving it everything I got and loving the process at the same time. This was a moment that made me very proud.
How has your unique player identity developed during our coaching program?
Before working with Corson I was a nervous player who only cared what others thought of my game. Now I’m a player and person who is a man on a mission and not letting anyone get in the way of that.
Would you recommend the Next Level Academy?
If you care about hockey and want to become the best player you can then the next level academy is for you. The next level academy is for people who care about their craft and want to surround themselves with people who will push them to be better everyday. In my opinion Corson is revolutionizing the game and will be one of the top mental coaches in the world one day because of the effort and passion for hockey development he has which is unmatched and destined for greatness.

During my work with Corson, he recommended workouts that helped me develop specific skills needed as a hockey player. He was able to assist me with ice hockey strategies to become a stronger/better player. Corson also advised me in ways to begin and maintain a healthy nutritional diet as an athlete. As a hockey player, he was able to help me with ways to gain and maintain my confidence as a player even during slumps in the season. More importantly, Corson supported me in teaching organizational strategies around my daily schedule that resulted in alleviating my stress and accomplishing my daily training.

The biggest thing that has changed for me since starting to work with Corson is feeling more calm on the ice and confident. I find myself being able to flow on the ice and it showed as my performance increased jurasticslly as well as my numbers. I started to feel more confident and demanded the puck more and started to make more plays. Corson really helped me achieve my goal of making midget AAA which thinking back to last year I didn’t even think it was possible but now it’s become a reality. After joining the program I now know who I am as a player and my role to my team. It has really helped me to know what my job is on the ice and what my team needs from me. I would highly recommend the next levels academy if you want to up your hockey game. The plan that is set into place for you with weekly coaching calls, being held accountable, various mental tools, really helped me level up my game. Even as a person I see myself as someone who dominates and on the ice my mindset has shifted to being powerful and going after it rather than waiting.
Reid Slugoski, AAA Player
Great weekend for me and the team. We ended up with one OT loss and one regulation win against the number one ranked team in the league. I scored two points. I played 25 minutes both games which was hard. I had confidence on the ice and felt like I was a top player against the best players in the league.
- Max Nystrom, USPHL Premier -> NCDC
Corson Searles helped me brake free from my ego. His program 10x my confidence, and my belief in myself. His visualization and self-hypnosis trainings he gave to me, were a staple in my everyday routine. Anyone who is thinking of joining Identity Shift Hockey needs to if they want to get to the next level.
