Dr. Jerry Lynch

Dr. Lynch

While most would consider him simply a sports psychologist, Dr. Jerry Lynch is a coach, mentor and teacher who guides and coaches athletes and parents to explore the meaning and purpose of sport, as a powerful vehicle to help us understand the mental-emotional-spiritual components of the athletic game and how they apply to the bigger game called LIFE. In the process of this exploration, overall athletic performance is greatly enhanced.

Dr. Lynch has a deep calling, one where his success is not measured by "making a living" but rather by "making a difference" in the athletic and personal lives of those with whom he works. He helps others to understand how sport is a microcosmic classroom for helping athletes, coaches and parents of sports kids develop crucial capacities to love, respect and care for each other while simultaneously learning to enhance the spiritual elements of courage, commitment, compassion, patience, perseverance, sacrifice, integrity, trust, belief and selflessness: the values so absolutely essential to extraordinary performance in athletics and life.

Using an unconventional approach, he combines Eastern thought, Native American tradition, Christian mysticism and western psychology to help coaches, parents and their athletes to create confidence, mental toughness, inspiration and empowerment for competitive events and to better navigate the unchartered waters of sports parenting and life.

Dr. Lynch has been recognized as one of the top five in his profession nationwide. He has worked with men's and women's basketball, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, golf and other sports at the universities of North Carolina, Duke, Maryland, California, Syracuse, Stanford, Harvard and Middlebury and continues to work with several teams and parent groups nationally. Several of his clients have participated in various summer and winter Olympic Games. Most recently, he has established a consultancy with Steve Kerr, head coach of the World Champion Golden State Warriors. In the past 30 years alone, he has been part of 54 Final Four and 36 National Championship at the collegiate and professional levels.

Dr. Lynch is a well known and in-demand public speaker at Leadership, Coaching, athletic and corporate conventions, a national presenter of conferences, clinics and workshops for coaches, sports parents and athletes to college and high school. He is dynamic, entertaining, motivating, provocative, and humorous, presenting topics on Peak Performance and the Way of Champions in a practical, easy-to-apply manner. Some of his presentations include Keynote Talks at the New Zealand National Academy of Sport, Der Deutsche Schmerztog in Germany, the National Field Hockey Coaches convention, the Ironman Sports Medicine Conference in Hawaii, the USA Lacrosse National Conventions and the NIKE/China Leadership Summit in Lanai, Hawaii.

Dr. Lynch has had extensive media interview coverage such as being an invited guest on CBS, NBC, and PBS national television, the New York Times, Oprah Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Baltimore Sun, Outside Magazine and over 50 national radio broadcasts, podcasts and webinars.

Dr. Lynch received his doctorate in psychology from Penn State University, and has done extensive post-doctoral work in the area of philosophy, Taoist and Buddhist thought, comparative religions, leadership development and performance enhancement. He has been a national class athlete, having been a member of a national championship team and, to this day, continues to run and bike. He has coached at the high school level as well as AAU sports.

He is the author of 13 books in as many as 10 languages on coaching, leadership, spirituality of sport, warrior spirit, peak performance, and sports psychology. He has nine DVD's (video) on the Way of the Champion as well as a TWO 6-CD audio boxes on PERFORMANCE IN ATHLETICS.

Dr. Lynch is the founder and director of WAY OF CHAMPIONS, a performance consulting group geared toward helping others master the inner game for peak performance in ATHLETICS and develop the essential spiritual qualities so necessary for the game of life. He maintains a private practice and an extensive sports psychology consultation service for athletes, coaches and parents around the world.

Jerry is excited to announce that he has merged his business with John O'Sullivan, CEO and Director of "Changing the Game Project" to form a separate nation-wide program that will focus on serving the needs of youth sports parents and coaches. Using podcasts, webinars, and "in person" clinics as platforms, their mission is to create a paradigm shift, a sea-change, in how we mentor, teach and guide these young stars as well as their parents.

Jerry is the father of four high energy, athletic children. He divides his time between his offices in Santa Cruz, California and Boulder, Colorado where he works and write in the spirit of what he teaches and coaches.
