"Game Plan"
Exceptional Athletic and Academic Success

The only guaranteed results, athletic seminar in the country.
Two programs to choose from!

  1. Do you utilize a memory system for your athletes that takes only minutes to learn, but will enable a student to hear a message one time and have it memorized?

    Grades improve immediately!

    Athletes make fewer mental mistakes.

  2. Are you utilizing "goal card technology" - the most innovative goal system in the country today?

    Your athletes get focused so they produce better results.

  3. Is mental imaging and the use of "anchors" part of your daily mental conditioning?

    You'll see immediate improvement.

GAME PLAN is a fast pace, fun, 2 hour program presented on your campus to all your athletes, both men and women. Its message is one of excellence—assisting athletes to get the most out of themselves both on the playing field and in the classroom. It covers the "mental aspects" necessary to win, provides exact "how to" strategies that can be implemented immediately, and is guaranteed to work.

Picture your athletes giving a standing ovation after this great program. See your athletes nodding yes during the program, a sign they "get it". See athletes eager to participate during the program.

ALL of these reactions are typical with the "Game Plan" program.

The program is presented by John Avianantos, a professional speaker with an athletic background, so all examples are geared and communicated in a way that athletes can identify with while they connect emotionally to the message.

The program is unlike anything your athletes have experienced; is affordable; will have immediate, as well as long lasting impact; assist athletes to be more accountable; and will make a difference as far as winning—on and off the field.

7 ROSE BOWL TEAMS didn't get there without covering all aspects of the game. BUT, John Avianantos spoke to all of them to add that extra only he brings in his unique way.

OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY used John the night before their National Championship win against the University of Miami.

2 NCAA 1-AA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS in football were the best at their level. YES, John spoke for them also. The Fiesta Bowl has had John speak on 5 occasions.

If you think you don't need John to come in and talk to your team, take a lesson from these very successful teams. They realized that even though their staff covered every aspect of the game, John could re-emphasize points in a little different way, add new innovative ideas, and take players to a new higher level of performance both on the field and in the classroom.

This Program Will:

  1. Assist you to win. Our material has been used by successful teams all across the country. We know what works and will share ideas and concepts with your team that they can implement immediately.
  2. We re-emphasize the key points that you want your team to know(team, loyalty, work ethic, etc.), but the message comes from an outside expert. All our material is related to athletics and uses examples your team will identify with.
  3. We provide you with a "guaranteed results" program. That's right-guaranteed. Our final fee is determined by your player's evaluation of the program. They say it will help them win or it is free.
  4. You get a proven professional. This program is presented on your campus by John Avianantos, a person with an athletic background who has been providing programs for athletes since 1984. You get a proven professional with years of successful experience.

You may cover many of or all of these topics, but what separates John from your staff is how he presents each area. He uses props, audio visual, participation awards, handouts for each athlete (No need to take notes), provides goal cards, and guarantees the program.

Each athlete also receives:

  • A 25 page manual with all the key ideas presented, as well as additional material, to insure continual yearlong improvement.
  • A CD that includes highlights of the program along with advanced techniques. This will assure space repetition learning as the athlete can listen to the concepts over and over---on their time.
  • A goal card
  • A Link Memory sheet
  • The 1 to 10 worksheet

Here is how our guarantee works:

After the program, each athlete is asked to fill out a pre printed evaluation card. The fee for your program is then divided by the number of cards collected, thus each card will have a dollar value. John considers any card that averages less than 70% negative, and he will deduct a portion of his fee for that card—and yes, although it has never happened, if all the cards are below 70%, your program is FREE. "I don't get paid to show up, but to produce and present a program that will help you win".

We help you to win or your
program is free!
