Why Sports?

Studies confirm that participation in sports produces notable improvement in attendance, graduation rate, self-esteem, academic accountability and performance, leadership skills, and future success in the workplace.

All of our consultants were athletes who felt the uniquely powerful effect of being a member of a team. All of our consultants were coaches as well, tasked with translating the most positive elements of their experience for the next generation.

Additionally, The Good Athlete Project is contributing to the research of exercise-induced neuro-enhancement: using movement in preparing the brain to receive, record, and create information. Backed by thorough research, we are launching and advising pilot studies across the U.S. and parts of Europe which incorporate exercise in daily curriculum.
