Testimonials

"Brandnew is the missing part of the education all athletes should get."

Gabriella Doueihy, Swimming (W), McGill University, 2016 Olympian (Lebanon)

It is inspiring, it makes you realize what you’re looking for and what kind of person you want to be. It is based on personal growth and self reflection. Sometimes with sport/academic routines we tend to forget about our values and our “why”. Brandnew teaches you how to incorporate these values in everything you do.

I’m still a competing athlete, and like all athletes I’m afraid of the moment I will have to stop swimming. Our sport is our identity in some way. But Brandnew not only prepares you for that moment and for what’s after but most importantly it teaches you that the transition to a career outside of sports doesn’t correspond to a whole different world but to an opportunity your sport has prepared you for during all these years. It shows you that you are a student of your sport. It also makes things that you knew but never truly realized, obvious and helpful.

I highly recommend it to every athlete looking and preparing for a future career in sports and outside of sports.

" Brandnew Athlete focuses on what is relevant to the lives of all student athletes. They motivate and inspire us to learn about topics that athletes need to be aware of and therefore, it becomes an insightful resource that truly facilitates a personal transformation while you are competing.

As part of the program, Brandnew Athlete includes reflection questions that encourage you to take action after listening to the content. The videos are short, to the point, and easy to follow, so often times you won't even need the extra push to take action, but instead, will be motivated enough to implement the lessons immediately.

"Brandnew is an excellent
resource for athletes"

Maddie Secco, Canadian Women's National Field Hockey

Brandnew Athlete is an excellent resource for athletes who will be facing transition from school or sport to life.

Just as a swimmer does lengths, or a basketball player shoots hoops, it is important to practice and prepare for life outside of sport. This on-line learning platform offers the tools needed to begin this process.

To name a few, Brandnew provides guidance around preparing a professional resume and cover letter , how to use LinkedIn effectively, networking fundamentals, interview prep and how to build a personal brand. Furthermore, it introduces athletes to inspiring industry professionals, who were former competitors themselves, and who share common experiences that you can relate to.

From this, participants can take confidence in harnessing the skills they’ve acquired on the field or in the gym, and apply them to their future endeavours.

I highly recommend Brandnew Athlete for any athlete looking for guidance

"I now have a better understanding of who I am, and how I can use the skills I’ve learned as an elite athlete in my day to day life and in the workplace."

Christian Christie, STU Tommies Volleyball

I loved the program! I now have a better understanding of who I am, and how I can use the skills I’ve learned as an elite athlete in my day to day life and in the workplace. The course is easy to use as it explains the topic or idea covered very well, then asks thought provoking questions which help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself. Being a student-athlete, it was also super helpful to have it be broken up into small videos and segments so you can go at your own pace.

I would recommend this course to every athlete who wants to better themselves both on and off the playing field.
