INSPIRATION

inspiration from the words of great athletic leaders

“The most important attribute a player must have is mental toughness.”

Mia Hamm, Professional soccer player, two-time US Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist and two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion

“The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when no one else is watching.” 

Anson Dorrance, Women’s soccer coach at University of North Carolina, with 21 NCAA Championships

“Passion is a huge prerequisite to winning.”

Kerri Walsh Jennings, US Olympic Beach Volleyball Gold Medalist

“No matter what life throws at you, or how unfair you think it is, never give up. Pick yourself up and go on.”  

Megan Rapinoe, US Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist

“Don’t let anyone work harder than you do.”

Serena Williams, Professional tennis player with 23 Grand Slam Championships

“Once you give them the power to tell you you’re great, you’ve also given them the power to tell you you’re unworthy. Once you start caring about people’s opinions of you, you give up control.”  

Ronda Rousey, former Ultimate Fighting Champion

“Somewhere behind the athlete you’ve become and the hours of practice and the coaches who have pushed you is a little girl who fell in love with the game and never looked back… play for her.”   

Mia Hamm, Professional soccer player, two-time US Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist and two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion
