  • Arthur of "10 Life Lessons: Learned as a Student-Athlete

The University of Kentucky is a high-pressurized university when it comes to athletics, so I get it when athletes feel the pressure to live up to high expectations they put on themselves and the high expectations bestowed upon them from other sources that are out of their control. The social media effect is where they can lose themselves.

Communicating, connecting with and motivating today's’ athletes can be challenging.  My experience as a player and coach in a high-pressure environment gives me a great understanding of what athletes go through and how they think and feel as I have been on both sides of the game.

I know the daily grind and needs of someone who dedicates there life to sports. I will also help them stay connected to the person on the inside while managing that person on the outside.  The "Public Eye Person"   

Just as they need to work on their physical skills, they also need to work on life skills.​

 

I help them think beyond their workout, practice and games to better focus on their life outside of their sport.  I help them development in each specific area that they are struggling in.

  • Manage the effects of COVID 19

  • Discover their next career path after sports

  • Develop workplace etiquette skills

  • Develop leadership skills

  • Develop time management and organization skills

  • Develop goal setting plans 

  • Develop personal accountability skills

  • Understand financial accountability

  • Develop decision making and problem solving skills 

  • Develop new coping skills

  • Manage mental, social and peer stress

Athletes have the need to always be challenged.  I will challenge them every step of the way to give them that winning edge for life.

"You did a great job and that’s why she is a stronger person. For example. She would have never asked for a meeting with her coach.
Furthermore ; she would have never stood up for herself in that meeting. She’s done it twice now.  She feels like she has control over her feelings and can express more. That’s all i wanted.

 

She hasn’t made that kinda progress in the last 6 years. As a dad. It actually brings tears to my eyes that she is getting it.

I can’t thank you enough Reggie. You have no idea what this means for her."

"Coach you were a true blessing.  I am so glad i was referred to you to help DeShaun.   

He made great strides this year as a person and this helped him make great strides as a player.

Thank you so much!"

B. Anderson

"Wow is all i can say Coach.  I am ashamed to say as a parent, but i didn't feel Jason's time management and organization skills could change.  

His entire thought process and outlook on life and his future has changed.   

He believes he can achieve things now and understands it takes work.  

Thank you, thank you thank you."
