About Dr. David McIntyre
Untapped Potential Sports Psychology began with the simple idea that student athletes and their families deserve access to the best mental skills training and support network available in order to be their best.
If you have spent any time involved in youth sports then you know the pressure. Our family’s pressure came in the form of club baseball. As a clinical psychologist, I observed well-intended adults undermine their players’ mental game. My wife, Angie, engaged with parents who were exhausted, frustruated, and afraid that they weren’t doing enough for their child. And as parents of players ourselves, we know firsthand the pain of watching our children suffer on and off the field when their body aches, their relationships falter, and their confidence slips.
What I Do
Allow yourself to imagine performing at a level you have only dreamed of: what it looks like, what it feels like, and what it sounds like. Working together, we’ll create a roadmap for you to tap into your true potential, make sure you have the tools you need to get to the next level. Thus helping you build a foundation for success.
I’ll share strategies and techniques that put you in the best possible position to succeed. Think there’s no way you can achieve your athletic dreams? You will learn ways to train smarter not harder and use your mental skills to get the most of your sports training. You’ll implement simple, sustainable practices that support your new mindset.
Prioritize the mental side of your game and learn to strengthen your mental toughness in ways that turn it into the finely tuned machine it was intended to be. Together, we’ll identify ways of thinking, behaving, preparing, and performing that work best for you. Working from the inside out, you’ll achieve better results in your performance and achieve the result you seek.
Set yourself up for successful relationships with your family, teammates, coaches, scouts, and the media. I’ll teach you how to effectively engage, communicate, even negotiate with them. It’s vital that those who surround you support your individual vision and goals. Surround yourself with those who share your positive “I got this” attitude and support your mental skills training.
MY PROMISE: Create a roadmap to greater success for growth minded athletes looking to discover their true potential.

Sports Injury Recovery
You have the physical side of sports injury recovery taken care of, don’t forget the mental side. Injuries can wreak more than physical havoc and we want to provide you with the tools to recover completely.This is about more than returning to the field as soon as possible — although we are all for that. Complete recovery is about looking at the negative messages in your mind and understanding why they’re there, then moving forward.
