DISCOVER Yourself From Within

Ever wonder who you are or why you are here?

DISCOVER is a unique and thought provoking pillar that aims to help elite athletes understand the concept of their personal strengths, character, values, virtues, transferable skills and personal why. Most importantly, it emphasizes how these assets make them extraordinary. This discovery from within empowers elite athletes to make impactful choices and decisions based on knowledge and confidence rather than fear. This is truly foundational.
