Integrating the art and science of coaching in a person-centred environment ensuring coaching effectiveness and healthy, injury-free athletes.
We aim to expose coaches to some of the latest thinking in coaching best practice by translating scientific research into practical solutions. Coaches are provided with the tools to develop players as both individuals and athletes while encouraging participation, performance and personal development. The professional and interpersonal knowledge of coaches will be enhanced to achieve athlete outcomes in different coaching contexts. Our vision is to inform the coaches’ responsibility and understanding of injury prevention and management to reduce the attrition rate, improve performance, and contribute to the long-term physical and mental well-being of the athlete.

Mary-Ann Dove has tremendous value to add both to professional sports people as well as those who aspire to become professional and their management teams. I have found that she possesses the unique ability to understand her clients and engage with them in the individual way that they each require. She has a wealth of working knowledge and experience with regard to communication as well as knowing how to holistically take care of the whole person. Here is a professional who not only understands the value of mental coaching and player development, but truly cares about her players and is prepared to walk the extra mile with them.

In my opinion, the nature in which Mary Ann deals with the players is where her true value lies. Each player is dealt with uniquely and an individualized action plan is developed. More importantly, Mary Ann takes it upon herself to follow up regularly with the players to track their progress, and sometimes to add a little motivation! I really enjoyed working with Mary Ann and look forward to our paths crossing in the future.
