Q: How many times a week should I go to HeadGames WebCamp?
A: You can go as often as you like, but most people go once a week. Find the session/coach that fits your needs the best and attend that session, or go to different sessions to change it up. Although the chapter of the week stays the same, each mental toughness coach has her own style and teaches it a little bit differently.
Q: Is each session different?
A: We teach a chapter from the Athlete Warrior Workbook every week. The chapter begins with the Sunday session and ends with the Thursday session. Each teacher teaches the chapter in her style so you may get something different with each session. In our Featured Camps, new material begins on Sunday.
Q: What is the structure of each WebCamp session?
A: Each session focuses on successes from the last week; song of the day; review of the tool from the last session; teaching of a new tool; Q and A; and sometimes an added fun game, especially during Summer Session. Featured Camps are focused on what athletes are going through at that point in the season.
Q: How does the technology work?
A: It’s important that you are getting the best connection you can for HeadGames WebCamp. Here are a few suggestions:
– Have a good internet connection by sitting close to your router or hardwire in with an Ethernet cable.
– Although WebCamp can be done on a tablet or phone, it’s often easier to do the first session on a laptop or personal computer in order to learn the ropes.
– Log in to your first session 15 minutes before. We use ZOOM so familiarity comes in handy. You will need to install ZOOM on your device or use the app. Don’t hesitate to inform your mental toughness coach that it’s your first night.
Q: Can other athletes besides gymnasts do WebCamp?
A: Yes! Our tools can be generalized to all sports, especially flipping sports like competitive cheer and figure skating. Currently, most of the athletes enrolled are gymnasts, ages 8-18. We’ve had softball players, soccer players, and volleyball players all enrolled in WebCamp.
Q: Can boys do WebCamp?
A: For sure!
Q: I’m a little shy; do I have to participate?
A: No, but the more you do, the more you will get out of it. Many people just observe and learn from WebCamp without turning on their camera. But it’s great to see you and “hear” your responses in the chat, so after you get used to the format…join in!
Q: What if I have technical difficulties?
A: Please refer to the email we provide for complete instructions on navigating through WebCamp and accessing your dashboard. If it is an issue with ZOOM, please refer to zoom.us for their technical advice on your device. Feel free to contact Doc Ali with technical questions.

Q: Can I start HeadGames WebCamp at any time?
A: Yes! WebCamp is designed so you can begin at any time. Each month consists of a lesson dealing with fear, adversity, competition and a character/life skills lesson. Although some build on each other, we go over past lessons as we teach current ones, to keep everyone on track. If your HeadGames trainer feels a past session would be of benefit to you, she will refer you to the recorded session.
Q: What if I miss sessions?
A: No worries, HeadGames WebCamp is recorded every week! Simply log in, go to the “recorded training sessions” link on the left, and click “training center.” The Sunday night late session is there for your review.
Q: How long do athletes stay in WebCamp?
A: The amount of time varies. Some stay for six weeks, and some for several years! The Athlete Warrior Workbook is a 10-month program of mental training. Stay as long as you are benefitting from WebCamp! Some people even complete the book multiple times. Every time is different due to new skills, levels, and times of season the tools are taught.
Q: Is WebCamp just for fear?
A: No! HeadGames WebCamp teaches tools for all areas of mental toughness not only for sport, but for life outside of sport as well. Learning how to overcome adversity, control emotions, get into ideal performance states regardless of what’s going on around you, getting into the present, and working well with people are life skills we could all use! Our Featured Camps focus on overcoming challenges during different seasons of an athlete’s year including competition, new skills development, leveling up, etc.
