What Schools Are Saying

Line element-03
In Fide Scientiam

We implemented the course with our ‘Talented Athlete Support Program’ (TASP) with great success. The holistic approach of the program really resonated with our students resulting in a fun, purposeful learning environment. The ‘Athlete Guidebook’ continues to be a valuable resource for both our students and coaches.

The course provided a real point of difference compared to other Athlete Development & Sports Excellence programs. The curriculum addressed current trends empowering students to transfer life-skills well outside their chosen sport. Jon continues to provide valuable support & expertise to our students.

It’s been a great resource for our student this year and has helped fuel some much-needed conversation around leadership and character on and off the field. Students have found the platform and content engaging, often completing online lessons outside of class and training time.
