what sets us apart
We started S2S in order to produce and refine athletes with respect to their whole – mind, body and spirit. If we are going to take athletes to the highest level that they want to be at, we must first understand that they are a whole athlete, on and off the field or court. We must seek to understand how they view the game as well as how they view themselves. My job is to train them to be physically capable of producing the highest level of play and decision making.
