About the Summit: The 2024 Lake Tahoe Performance Summit will present a leading, evidence-informed approach for sport performance enhancement. A mindfulness-based mental training program for athletes and coaches, mindful sport performance enhancement (MSPE), will be introduced (Kaufman, Glass & Pineau, 2018).


Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the theoretical and empirical basis of MSPE, factors relevant to its application across diverse populations and settings, as well as limitations of this research and future directions. This interactive, experiential workshop will provide exposure to the educational content and mindfulness exercises that comprise MSPE. Participants will learn key strategies for integrating core mindfulness skills into practice, competition, and daily life.

During a fully catered, working lunch, a moderated, multi-disciplinary panel will discuss factors related to sport performance from the sport science, coach, and athlete perspectives. Participants will also have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on, experiential instruction in MSPE concepts and practices via participation in a guided in-vivo, mindful yoga practice and a guided, mindful hike in the picturesque Olympic Valley.


Courage Project is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Courage Project maintains responsibility for this program and its content. 6.0 CE credits are available. 

According to APA’s Standards and Criteria for Approval of Sponsors, only those persons who complete the program in its entirety may be awarded CE credits.

2024 Lake Tahoe Performance Summit 



Anxiety and Depression limit children from seeing all that they are capable of achieving.  

We're here to change that.  By compassionately and thoughtfully introducing children to inspiring mountain adventures in world-class Lake Tahoe, the Courage Project provides children with

experiences that challenge their expectations regarding their capabilities.  Our goal is to help

children with anxiety and depression believe in their ability to live their lives to the fullest.  

With the help of incredible volunteers and a team of amazing athletes,

the Courage Project is making a difference in the lives of

children and families, one adventure at a time.
