Our Culture

From the moment athletes arrive at Sports Challenge, they become immersed in the invigorating, inclusive and motivating culture of Strive. The program is demanding and supportive — inspiring athletes to improve their game individually and collectively. They are encouraged to take risks in a safe environment; to embrace failure and “brush it off.” This mindset cultivates growth in both athletic performance and leadership development.

Our Coaches

At Sports Challenge our coaches change lives. We are athletic professionals and college-level athletes who are so dedicated to the program that we take personal vacation time to build the Strive community and nurture young leaders. We serve as mentors in all aspects of the student-athlete experience — eating in the dining hall, hanging out during breaks, building individual relationships, and delivering high-impact sport-specific training.
