Coaching consultancy is a service tailored for sport coaches, and sport teams by providing performance-based solutions to performance obstacles. This applied project work is where our coaches come into to your team and become the coaches ‘critical friend’ providing a non-biased and objective opinion on overcoming performance challenges that you are experiencing.
As sport coaches, one of the reasons we get into the business of coaching is to have a positive impact on individuals through the catalyst of sport, passing on the lessons we learned as athletes to the next generation. We simply want the best for our athletes and teams. As humans, we are limited by what we know. If we have never been exposed to a specific training environment, training methodology or a way of critically thinking - how can we expect to solve every performance problem we face as sport coaches.
There is a historical saying that ‘two minds are better than one’. Adding to your coaching team, allows for an external opinion and another perspective. This can only be a positive step. We have always found that the best ideas have come from the discussions and conversation we share with others. Without these productive conversations, we can be limited by our own personal bias and perspectives. Creative thinking can be inspired by open dialog. Our approach is to simply empower your coaches and athletes, allowing everyone to be the best they can be and be successful in doing so. Sometimes, even the most subtle of changes to a training program can have the most reward to your team’s sport performance.
Consultancy based service is applied through coaching science. Using our international coaches’ knowledge and applied experience to blend the science and the art of coaching. This service is specially designed to meet your coaches and teams needs. We have been providing consultancy service to Canadian grassroots sports teams for many years. Below are a few examples of areas we have consulted on:
Are you experiencing a high injury rate with your athletes? There are many reasons for injury occurrence. We can help you by implementing strategies in your training program to bullet proof your athletes from injuries.
Not sure how to plan your pre-season training? We can assess the physical readiness of your athletes and plan a program to develop your athlete’s physical ability. Including movement competence, speed, change of direction ability, stamina, strength and power.
Game day preparation is extremely important whether its one game or multiple games. We can help develop systems and strategies for travel, recovery, and warm ups. Allowing your athletes to be optimally prepared to compete.
Have a topic that your coaches want to improve their knowledge? We can provide coach education for topics relevant to athletic development and sport performance.

It all starts with an inquiry. After receiving your inquiry, we reach out to you and arrange a no obligation consultation [via cell, Skype, Facetime etc.] to allow us to get to know each other, find out how we can help you and where to go from here. After the initial discussion, our coaches get to work on drafting you a project proposal providing the descriptions on the specifics, timelines, and implementation process. Once the project is finalized, our coaches join your coaching team and implement the project.
Our consultation process has no obligations. We are excited to join your team, reach out to us to make an inquiry. Provide us with some details about yourself with your contact information and we will go from there. We are looking forward to meet you!
