The next “Guided Mission” 

with Jason Podollan begins

Monday, April 3rd, 2023


What if you had a secret weapon that would increase your performance, explode your confidence, and drive your development WITHOUT more training and ice time?

The secret weapon is your MINDSET! 

But most players don’t know about the secret weapon or don’t know how to use it correctly.

Lots of players want to make the team, get drafted, earn the scholarship and play in the NHL and you need to separate yourself.

The Peak Potential Hockey Project is the program that will unlock the most powerful tool in your toolbox!


Interested in the next guided mission?

I’m halfway through your Peak Potential course and absolutely loving it.  I’m impressed with the ideas and strategies you’re teaching and what a fantastic communicator you are. You are definitely helping me develop the mental & emotional skills required to reach the next level. Thank you very much. Keep up the great work!

Most players focus only on their physical development. 

They shoot pucks, lift weights, and do track work. BUT the top professionals know that your PEAK POTENTIAL is much more than physical – Peak potential is about MINDSET! 

How much more? That’s to be debated, but most agree the mental part of the game is at least 50% of the equation!

So if MINDSET is at least 50% of reaching your potential, why do most players spend 0% of their time developing it? 

Mindset is the competitive edge you are looking for!

A mindset program like this has NEVER existed before. Designed by an NHL’er, and coached by an NHL’er, exclusively for hockey players who have big dreams!

a message from coach pods

My name is Jason Podollan and I help hockey players exceed expectations, without more ice time or physical training, by developing the mindset required to confidently pursue and capture their audacious goals. Most parents, players (even coaches!) don’t know what a high-performance mindset is, how to train it or how it will benefit them. That’s why I created this 4-week guided program, so hockey players everywhere can gain the information and support they need to elevate their game.

Over a 20 year hockey career, Jason has worked with organizations in the WHL, AHL, NHL and DEL.

It was a completely different training routine this summer. I focused a lot more on the mental side of it rather than the physical side of it, as I was always a guy who came in shape. I wanted to come in with a good mindset and I feel better on the ice. My mindset is a lot better and it’s been paying off.

Here are 3 TOTALLY NOT TRUE PERCEPTIONS I have been hearing lately

3 Old School Thoughts

that are holding players backs




Mindset is a SKILL. Just like skating or shooting, your mindset is something you can train, develop, improve and master!




You don’t prepare for the storm, during the storm. Prepare today so you are ready when it matters!




Visualization is one of MANY mindset tools. Mindset helps you manage adversity, embrace mistakes, stay focused, manage emotions, capitalize on opportunities, excel at camps, be a better teammate, build confidence, establish elite standards, and many more!

Course Mission

To empower players to create their P.O.S. (Personal Operating System). Every hockey player is different. And every player responds to success, challenge, competition, mistakes and training differently. The Peak Potential Project will give players the tools they need to thrive as the individual they are.

How it works

The Peak Potential Hockey Project (PPP) is an online program. Players create a login at registration and access the lessons from their phone, tablet or computer at their convenience.

Lessons are designed to be taken daily, Monday through Friday

The program was designed this way to encourage engagement by building good habits, accountability, and time management skills. Each week will contain various activities to help the players apply the content instantly.

Daily lessons never exceed 20 minutes in length

The program was designed with today’s athlete in mind - they are busy and they have short attention spans! Content is direct, to the point, and applicable. No one is overwhelmed!

Each week has a different theme

Each week is a new topic that builds throughout the week. This keeps the content fresh, exciting and interesting and allows them the space to apply what they have learned.

Each Week is Followed Up with a LIVE Coaching call

At the conclusion of each week, players will join Coach Pods to review the material and discuss the concepts. Coach Pods keeps players accountable to the program, celebrates success, works through challenges, and supports players with applying the material. This is a highlight for all registered players. *not included in all program streams*

This season I was selected for both the U14 and U16 Belfast junior Giants ice hockey teams and also the Ireland U16 National Ice Hockey Squad.

I also played U15 and U18 Roller/Inline hockey and will be heading to Spain in July to play for the U16 Inline hockey National team at the European Championships.

It’s been a busy season of hockey and the knowledge I learned during your course has really helped me to achieve my goals this year.

My game and mental resilience have improved greatly this season and I put a lot of that down to completing your course. So thanks again.

I immediately saw the benefits of working with Jason and his program. Our players were more adept in handling adversity, letting go of frustration and even using it as a tool for performance.  Jason’s knowledge of the game combined with his expertise in mental coaching played a significant role in our team’s performance on and off the ice. I would highly recommend Jason to any athlete or team looking to increase mental toughness for an athletic advantage.

what are people saying?

Matt Kiger

“Starting from day 5 of the program, was probably a 50% improvement from his willingness to get up and go”

Matt Kiger

It will change your player for the better. As a person and a player. If they have low confidence and esteem, it will crack that shell and get them out there to try.”

Melissa Mertinet

“On the ice he’s confident. It is the off-ice communication that he has always struggled with…”

Ezekial Family

“We all use the training. Your mindset training helped the entire family. I was going to my bluehead everyday, and those reminders helped us in hockey and in life.”

Jason Blackstock

“I’ve done a lot of personal growth stuff with my wife. And this ranks right up there with the best I have heard.”

Mike Edgehouse

“I would recommend it to hockey players, and not just for the sport of hockey. I have noticed my kid applies the principles in multiple aspects of life”.

Wendy Winder

“It is nice for my son to have an external accountability person. That  little extra motivation to keep him accountable”.

Kim Cox

“My son said, mom, it’s the gratefulness. Before, he would have sat in his head, and stewed in it. Now, he opens up and thinks about how to overcome it”

Devon Group Call

“The thing I have noticed that is cool to see, is being self aware. For example, I was scared during the drill to mess up. But I stopped in between the drill, thought about your lessons and was way better after.”

Mental toughness and resiliency are traits that separate elite athletes from the rest of the pack.  The same can be said for leaders in any area of business or even parenting.  Jason has shown a passion for coaching kids and I have had the pleasure to coach with him.  The determination he showed as a player has now carried over to his coaching style.

Most frequent questions and answers

Each week is dedicated to a Mindset Theme and content is released daily, Monday to Friday and accessed online. Each day’s content is 20 minutes or less because Coach Jason knows this is the best method for engagement, retention, and application.  The program also includes challenges and assignments.

The online platform allows Coach Jason to track player progress inside the program. The program design (new daily content and 20-minute time commitment) encourages positive habit formation and player engagement, but Coach Jason is always there to give the athletes any reminders or accountability checks they may need. 

Coach Jason wants everyone in the course to have the best chance at success, so he makes himself available via FB Messenger. Ask your question anytime, day or night, and Coach Jason will respond within 12 hours.

This program has been successfully completed by players aged 10 to 19. All players are different, but the U15 age group has seen amazing engagement and results. U13 and U18 are also great age groups for engagement, application and results.

Hey! I’m Your Coach

I believe every hockey player should have HUGE DREAMS and I want you to achieve yours, just like I achieved mine. On my journey to play in the NHL, I learned a lot of lessons along the way and now I want to share them with you! My mindset was one of the reasons that allowed me to make the NHL when others didn’t. But my mindset was also what held me back from making all my dreams come true.

It takes MUCH MORE than talent and hard work to make your dreams come true. I know that now. I know it takes a mentor and coach who cares about you and invests their time and energy into bringing out the best in you. It also takes a bulletproof mindset to see opportunity in the face of the biggest setbacks, to apply laser focus to your development, and to stay accountable to your dreams over the long term! 

I know these skills are essential to reach your potential and live your dreams. I will be your guide, your mentor, and your coach over the next 4 weeks to give you the tools you need to make it happen.
