ATHLETES

When you look at mental health statistics of today's kids, it’s scary and dismal. Depression, anxiety, and behavior disorders are on the rise. The burden on our kids is much greater than when we were young which can be attributed to many factors:

  • Increased performance pressure (sports, education, social, etc)

  • Increased exposure to violence and threats to our safety

  • Social media and the pressure that comes with it

  • Reduced human contact and connection

  • Poor nutrition and lack of sleep

  • And so much more...

For many kids, sports are an outlet. For others, it has become a major part of their stress. Schools are doing what they can to offer support but it’s simply not enough. Work needs to be done proactively and directly so our kids can develop into happy and healthy young adults. Staying current and giving them the tools to cope with what they are seeing, hearing, and feeling is more critical now than ever. That's where we come in.

Our approach is unique and cutting edge. We want to empower our teens and young adults with tools and strategies to deal with the tough situations they face. Thru the Game workshops will involve open and honest discussions with a solution-focused approach.
