“I have worked with many levels of athletes, including professional and D1 collegiate athletes. The ones who have brought me the most pride and fulfillment, however, have been those at the high school level. Being able to nurture their talent and passion for their sport, and provide them with the tools for continued success is what drove me to create this program”    – Ben Stadler
