Quote as to why the staff member got involved with Pro Prep:

“I have always had a passion for supporting the mental prep side of sport. Growing up, I was keenly interested in how my dad, a former goaltender, taught my older brother the importance of mentally preparing for competition as a goalie. As a competitive athlete myself, I valued the importance of developing skills to achieve mental toughness and resilience from an early age which fueled my desire to pursue sport psychology. Working with young athletes to teach the importance of investing in your mental prep the same way you invest in your technical skills is an area that has become increasingly more integrated into the game as a necessarycomponent. What Pro Prep Academy is doing right now within the community is amazing and I am proud to align myself with their mission.”
