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. 

We do not believe that there is another training facility out there that is as intentional as we are with each of our athletes who walks through the door. They are more than just numbers to us and they will be treated that way. From a professional standpoint, sports are solving problems with movement. Facilities are not training athletes to become better decision makers. The decision making process starts with the brain, their behavior, and then their biomechanics. (most just train biomechanics)
