Jeff Butorac

Jeff was born and raised in Rochester MN.  He attended Saint John’s University where he received his degree in Sociology. After college, Jeff spent over a decade coaching NCAA and high school basketball and tennis, as well as getting his Masters in Kinesiology & Coaching. Unfortunately, Jeff had to step away from coaching due to dealing with anxiety and panic attacks. Though he felt lost and confused, the setback in life created a drive within him to understand the psychology behind mental strength, learning to control his focus, and quiet the negative voice in his head. 


He now uses his expertise by working with teams, coaches, and individuals to strengthen their mental game, improve their performance, and Silence their Inner Rival



"At the end of our season last year, in meeting with my players the overall consistent message I got is that my players struggled with their confidence. Jeff from Inner Rival reached out to me and we scheduled a session. Myself, as well as my players, found it to be an incredible experience, and will for sure be using his expertise throughout our upcoming season. His program will not only help the kids with their game but it will also carry over into their life off the court. Our goal as a program is to promote a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally, and Inner Rival is a perfect catalyst towards that goal, as Jeff is a former coach and player who has first hand experience in dealing with the pressures that go along with competing in today's ever challenging athletic environments."

- Brian Cosgriff

7-Time Minnesota High School Basketball State Champion Coach

"Before talking to Jeff, I had confidence issues and come off one of the most disappointing season of my life. I gained some confidence back, but talking to Jeff and hearing his tips instilled it in me. Each conversation we have is a reminder that I never want to feel that way ever again. My work ethic and desire to succeed is unwavering now, compared to my inconsistencies before. Hearing someone else who has been through similar situations and validating how I've felt has changed the way I look at things forever!

- NCAA Men's Basketball Player

"Jeff was just what we needed for our basketball team. He had a great presentation prepared, the girls were engaged and learned a lot about their Inner Rival. It definitely helped many of our athlete's mental toughness and positive self-talk the rest of the season."

- Alex Davis

Girls High School Basketball Coach

"As a tennis player, Jeff has helped me to get an edge by focusing on my mental game. Working with Coach Jeff to set goals and learning techniques to help me continue to improve."

- Girls High School Tennis Player
