"Very impressive stuff. I can't recommend it highly enough!"


I went through the Soccer Mindset Academy to check it first before I got my three sons onto it. I was very impressed with the videos and how easy Andy made the course. My sons have all gone through the course and they found it very useful
and all three of them have seen a marked improvement in their attitude towards their soccer and the results on the field. Very impressive stuff. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Who are the Soccer Mindset Coaches and what qualifies them to teach this program?
Yal Bekar
A “talented” soccer player in his youth; a rising 14-year old superstar with skill, power, pace, and an eye for a pass. - according to the scouts and National Press. But like so many, his career fizzled out, for reasons he didn’t yet understand, and he found himself on the scrap heap along with thousands of other players every year.

Yal spent the next 25 years trying to work out why some of his teammates who were not technically as talented made the grade while he didn’t… It seems he was missing the critical third side of the “PEAK PERFORMANCE” triangle Something he only discovered later in life, something he now knows is crucial to success at any level, in any sport, in fact in any area of life. Yal’s journey led him into a career on the fringes of Soccer, which allowed him now, to team up with Andy Barton and other coaches and mentors to create the SMA and help young players to create the a brilliant soccer mindset to help them become the best player they can be.

Andy is particularly known for his work in the sports field where his clients include Premiership footballers, European Tour golfers, Olympians, international rugby players, cricketers, tennis players and motor sport competitors. His knowledge and understanding of creating a ‘peak performance’ mindset means he is in high demand from a wide range of other fields including business leaders, stage and screen actors, musicians, comedians, financial traders, entrepreneurs, politicians, designers, professional poker players and writers to name a few. 

It was Andy that first brought Yal’s attention to the existence of the “PEAK PERFORMANCE” triangle as a result of his extensive work with Sporting professionals.
