We have Jim Davis from the Good Athlete Project. He was a collegiate football player who also played arena football and european football. After his football career he went on to get a degree at Harvard, and then the Good Athlete project was born. Here is from their website:
What is a Good Athlete?
Have you ever shown up to a biology class shaking with excitement? because that will happen every Friday night this fall as High School football players prepare for their games. The platform of athletics is undeniably powerful, and we are on a mission to be sure it is used to its full potential. Through the lens of cognitive neuroscience and social theory, we capitalize on one’s desire to be Good Players to ensure they become a Good People.
We use research-based methods to teach for those things in life that truly matter: character, leadership, grit, growth mindset, conscientiousness, and yes, kindness. Contact us to find out how we can support your team!
Also if you are interested in our training check out Garagegymathlete.com. We have one on one coaching available or just the programming depending on how serious you want to get. Our athletes have had some amazing results with our training, which can also view their stories on the website.
