Our Story

Our Beginnings

Being a strong student athlete is not an easy thing today and we wanted to create a organization that can help the transition. By giving time and resources we believe student athletes can see their worth and demonstrate qualities in life that encompass the #StudentAthleteStrong mentality. We believe stronger student athletes make stronger communities in which they serve. By getting involved with their community, they learn life lessons and understand what it means to give back. To learn and be able to master the interview skills in which athletes sell themselves confidently will benefit them not only now, but in their future. Leadership skills are critical to their survival in the classroom, their sport, and social interactions.

To play a sport is a privilege and can be taken away at any moment. So, once the thought of being an athlete is over what do you have then? Life lessons are critical to the well being of the student athlete. When those lights, cameras, and attention are not there anymore what do you have? We believe the people on and off the field should be unique. We at Outside the Games are here to help you, the student athlete!

Our Vision

Our vision is simple. Outside the Games is about the student athlete on and off the field. Striving for good character on and off the field is critical to what makes the student athlete strong and successful in many aspects throughout their life. We as an organization exist to help student athletes realize their capabilities and potential not only on the field, but also off the field by giving them the exposure needed to get to the next level.
