About Our Company

OUR MISSION

The Game & Beyond is a program created by former collegiate athletes turned successful professionals with the “obligation” of educating, informing and preparing student athletes for professional and personal success. Our step-by-step “Playbook” will show athletes how to tap into their competitive toolbox and lead them to accomplishments beyond the game.

Problem

Houston we have a problem, Why are athletes succeeding on the field but fail to translate this success to life off the field? Why are athletes failing to maintain their competitive advantage, their will to win regardless their circumstance? There is a game being played and WE are losing! All athletes develop incredible and transferrable skills as a result of their participation in competitive sports, but as it stands today most fail at knowing how or when to use them.

Philosophy

Athletic competition builds winners, WE,

student athletes, are taught that 2nd place is unacceptable

regardless the endeavor. By applying

the 1st P.L.A.C.E. Game Plan, a 5-Step philosophy founded on core athlete principles, WE will remain ahead of the curve, maintain our competitive advantage, and ultimately win life’s race.

Game Plan

By applying the 1st P.L.A.C.E. Philosophy to what our experts have identified as the 4 Quarters of Life: Networking, Professional Development, Financial Literacy, and Personal Development athletes everywhere will understand how to create a game plan that will secure a successful and complete storyline beyond the game.
