C5 Elite Athlete Profile

How often are athletes recruited for their physical abilities only to end up being a disappointment because they lack the mental toughness, winning drive or "psychological make-up" needed to succeed at the "next level?"

PsyMetrics' C5 Elite Athlete Profile helps to quickly identify those athletes who possess five critical behavioral characteristics that have been linked to athletic success.

Areas assessed by the C5 are:


The degree to which the athlete pushes him/herself to the absolute limit, is mentally tough, prepares for competition, has the internal drive to be the best, exhibits a winning attitude and is willing to risk it all to win it all.


The degree to which the athlete can be counted on to attend practices and meetings as scheduled. The degree to which the athlete thinks things through, is organized, responsible and achievement driven.


The degree to which the athlete is a team player, is willing to sacrifice self for the good of the team, trusts those around him/her and does not engage in conflict with team members or coaching staff.


The degree to which the athlete feels he/she is in control during tough competitions, is self confident and is not afraid of high pressure situations.
