Quote as to what excites the staff member about working with ProPrep:
Andrew and I are very excited to have come together to achieve a common goal, to bring all the tools needed for well-rounded, student-athlete development, that can exist under one umbrella. The team of professionals that we have been able to put together is truly second-to-none; their credentials and experience speak for themselves, but at the forefront, they are just tremendous human beings that also share in our same vision. Together, we look forward to changing the game in the city of Winnipeg and abroad. We have all had different experiences as athletes and are fortunate to have each had support systems to get us to where we currently are. It is our mission to serve as that same support system to all the student-athletes that follow.
