Our approach is first and foremost service. Service means listening to the athlete’s needs and adjusting our approach to help them achieve their goals. Service means being there to motivate, being there to bounce ideas off, being there to help resolve problems. Service means responding quickly and professionally to the athlete’s questions, comments and concerns. Service means our expertise and contacts to leverage other expert resources to help the athlete achieve their goals. We treat all our athletes, their goals and aspirations equally, whether you are new to the sport or seeking that championship win.
Coaching may start with the production of a training plan but it is nothing without the commitment of the coach and athlete team to the goal. It is this team approach that we engender with our athletes that creates their success.
