In most cases, mental training is ignored in sport. An athlete’s ability to calm down, believe, focus and then thrive in tough moments is critical to their success. Training the mind is no different than training the body. It takes hard work & repetition. Rugby Ontario is pleased to introduce LUCID mental performance. With decades of proven experience, professional world-championship success and a global athlete pool that swears by the product, Lucid stands alone. Lucid represents the mental training component of the STT system. Athletes complete 5-7 minute Lucid "mind workouts" daily as listening to Lucid sound files. Each lesson builds to the next. Lucid is deployed to athletes via their athlete APP.
At Lucid, our passion to unlock potential drives who we are and what we do. True competitors are on a never-ending quest for greatness, often putting more pressure on themselves than any coach, peer, or relative ever could - and that is why we have created a tool to help curb the noise, focus on the task at hand, and achieve results. Unlike other meditation or performance apps, Lucid is goal-oriented and founded in principles of sport psychology. We help you perform under pressure by providing you with the mental training tools to face any challenges that you choose to tackle.
We live in a world where every moment counts, which is why our workouts are designed to be completed wherever you are, whenever you need them. All you need is a phone and five minutes.
THE LUCID STORY
Mental training is far from a new concept. For decades, elite athletes have employed sport psychology to gain a competitive edge. However, despite its proven effectiveness, access has been limited to in-person training. Our founders sought to address this need and envisioned a platform to empower athletes with the same mental training as the pros.We enlisted Graham Betchard and George Mumford, two of the best performance coaches in athletics, as well as leaders in tech, sports, and mindfulness to build the Lucid app. We also formed the LUCID Players Association: a network of current and retired athletes dedicated to developing the minds of the next generation. Aaron Gordon of the Orlando Magic and Brandon Marshall of the New York Giants have laid the groundwork for the LPA. Through their alignment with Lucid's mission, they have opened the door for other elite athletes to join the movement.

Mumford was a significant contributor to the iconic careers of Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, and has documented much of this journey in his book.

“The one thing that Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant could agree upon was that George Mumford was their secret weapon, the trusted advisor who brought clarity to their competitive minds. I know this because they told me personally. Mumford’s “The Mindful Athlete” brings to the reader the special insight that the world’s greatest athletes—from Michael Jordan to Scottie Pippen, from Shaq to Kobe—came to treasure.”
