HI, I’m glad to know that you’re interested in the activity of the Mental Coach courses by ISMCA (International Sport Mental Coach Association), the new association, recently foundend by Mr. Alberto Castellani, ATP coach and mental trainer.


ISMCA aims to focus its activity and studies on the mental and psychological aspects of the various sports disciplines, in particular on competitive tennis, basic and professional.

The association is directed to the following figures: players, trainers, teachers, physical preparators, psychologists and mental coaches.

The training program consists on three levels:

Level 1 – Basic techniques of mental training;
Level 2 – Use of mental training techniques at a competitive level;
Level 3 – Preparation of a personalized mental training plan;

At the end of each level there is a final exam for getting the qualification of Sport Mental Coach spezialized in tennis (level 1, 2 or 3) and this being able to access the next level. Once concluded, the training path of ISMCA also allows the members to pursue their training in the field of sports coaching: completed the three levels, in fact, they can access with an high numbers of credits at the degree in Sport Coaching of the Newport Research University of Palm Beach, reducing this way the number of exams.
