Sport Specific Skill-Set Training for Individual Players & Teams


Description of the category

All sports require a baseline aptitude of individual and team technical ability in order for athletes to have success in competition.  Technical ability specifically refers to the sport-specific skill set attached to the sport.  A player or teams range of technical comprehension is widespread and varies greatly depending on the level of ability (age and skill), level of competition, and the sport in which is being practiced.  Skill competency is only one component of an athletes makeup in regards to individual and a teams development, but its often the area in which the most time and energy is spent.

For example and for worldwide reference, Steph Curry (basketball) and Leonel Messi (soccer) are two individuals who have spent hours upon hours honing their technical ability.  Make no mistake that they have been blessed with special athleticism and sport-specific knowhow, coupled with a mental makeup that separates them from their competitors.  But, in evaluating them as players with an element of superiority, they are largely who they are because their practiced skill set separates them from all others.  

Now while idolizing these incredible figures is only natural and important in maturation process, a vital ingredient of a young athletes’ journey, the meat of athlete development must not be forgotten or mistaken.  The goal for young athletes today shouldn't be to be Steph Curry or Leonel Messi, but rather the development path should mimic the work ethic of these individuals while placing focused attention toward doing what it takes to find personal identity.

At Doty Performance, our goal is to provide technical sport-specific training (in soccer, basketball, and baseball) ranging from a novice to an elite level.  Whether someone is seeking an elevated overall performance level or looking for technical instruction in a particular area, we can provide a client-centered platform for growth and improvement around the needs and wants of the individual/team.

Speed, Strength, Fitness, and Agility Training for Individuals & Teams


Description of the category

Just like technical skill and mental aptitude are practiced and learned elements in sports and in life, so to is a player and teams’ physical make up and ability.  Oftentimes physical attributes are attributed to what you are born with, and in reality, this is partially true.  Since day one, we as individuals were all set-up with a different physical growth path and evolution pattern.  We all can't jump and hang in the air like Michael Jordan, and very few people are blessed with the speed of Usane Bolt or the strength of Lebron James.  But the truth of the matter is that even those supremely gifted athletes had to put a great amount of time and work into developing the physical tools they possess, further highlighting the reality that no matter who you are there is always room for growth and improvement.  

What you are physically, just like what you are technically and mentally, should be forever growing and evolving.  Whether it be strength or speed or quickness, there is always an area in which players and teams can grow in regards to what they are capable of and the quality in which they perform.  In comparing physical maturation to the ability to grow technically, we all physically have a base we can build off of, which may not be the case in the technical arena.  And furthermore, in a paralleled approach with technical development, physical goals shouldn't be centered around being like someone else but rather should be focused toward creating the best version of ourselves we can possibly create.  

At Doty Performance, our goal is to establish a sport-specific physical platform in which each individual athlete or team can grow and thrive from, ultimately aiding in physical performance and development in their respective sport.

Evaluating Players Technical, Tactical, Physical, & Mental Ability


Performance Evaluation Program

Being able to get a clear evaluation and assessment of where you are (in your sport), receiving genuine and detailed feedback, is a vital part of the development process.  Without this aspect of healthy development, as an athlete it becomes more difficult to grow while having your skill-set and training being in line with your ability to compete and perform.   

What we provide at Doty Performance is a unique and educated system to evaluating athletes and teams.  In our mission to reach all clients on a very personal level, our evaluations take place at events or training sessions of the clients and can be as extensive and in depth as desired.  It can be an evaluation of one match/game/session/practice or it could be multiple events to get a wider and deeper dive into development and performance.  In conclusion, a review of the evaluation material and a suggested development program is provided for each client/team.

Bridging the Gap from High School to College


College Connection Program

Being a youth athlete or being someone helping a youth athlete trying to reach college-level sports, attempting to navigate the process with concrete advice and efficiency can be quite daunting and difficult.  As a result of an ever-changing college acceptance and recruitment process, athlete connection to college programs and knowledge of how those programs operate can be very complicated and a frustrating door to get through.

With a collection of former college coaches, individuals that were immersed in the world of athlete recruitment, Doty Performance provides athletes and teams with what they need to know about the college recruitment process.  From NCAA compliance (academic standards/communication rules) to best practices of approach (best way to attain desired outcome), we can provide athletes (and parents) seeking the next level with the facts they'll need to understand the process with direction and success.   

In the near future, Doty Performance will be offering camps through our WE RISE program where we give players the opportunity to get exposure in front of college coaches while also getting educated (including parents) on the recruiting process and compliance standards of the college system.  In addition, these camps provide an elite knowledge platform technically and tactically, giving players a glimpse of what next-level expectations are all about.  Check out our Camps page to learn more.

Mental Performance Training

Mental Strength training for individuals and/or teams


Description of the category:

The most underutilized and overlooked tool when it comes to development in athletics today is mental training.  From childhood to adult years, whether you are an athlete or a factory worker or a doctor, on a daily basis we are all forming our own individual mental makeup.  This template is the foundation on which we decode, process, and formulate our own mental philosophy/perspective.  What we are able to do physically as human beings is no doubt unbelievable, but what we are capable of accomplishing mentally is drastically unmatched, which ultimately paves the road map for what our individual journey ahead is to be.   

Influential and successful people all over the planet, in a variety of professional fields, will all without hesitation endorse the idea that what you can accomplish between your own to ears is directly linked to the limit of what your physical/technical/tactical potential can be.  Very few people flourish and succeed physically without doing so mentally first.  Confidence, motivation, and adversity are all elements in which athletes severely struggle with because their tool kit simply isn't equipped or built up to process and take-on the challenge of mental expansion and dominance.  Furthermore, and probably even more important to grasp is the fact that what we can and cannot do mentally is self-controlled, purely dependent on the user of the mind.  

At Doty Performance, our goal is to provide a clearly defined training process and deeper structure to what foundational work is already in place, cultivating what is within reach of being accomplished.  Knowledge and experience based support will allow individuals and teams to expand what they are capable of mentally, which in turn will coincide to what their product is on the field, on the court, and in life.

Adam Saucedo, experienced and talented mental trainer, is the Director of Mental Training at Doty Performance.  Adam has worked with hundreds of athletes (youth and professional) across multiple sports and goal platforms, serving as an instrumental ingredient in the development and application of mental strength and performance techniques.
