At the California Sports Institute, we feel that to in order to be effective in assisting our athletes, the entire process should be in collaboration with the athlete. We feel the bond between athlete and coach is as important as any single element of the training continuum. We spend time visiting with, and listening to, each and every one of our athletes. Yes, we listen to what their wants, needs, goals and dreams are but most importantly we take the time to get to know them as people. We believe that training is maximized when one pays attention to the person at the core of the athlete.
