“We are excited to get an opportunity to work with an outstanding facility like Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports,” said Roy Kessel, Founder of Sports Brain. “This will be a terrific location for one of our Sports Brain studios and will allow us to offer our services within an innovative and rapidly growing facility. We especially like the emphasis placed on training the “complete athlete” in the Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports model and we believe that our mental performance development programs fit well with the ideals of the facility.”
“Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports has always placed an emphasis on “Training Athletes Inside Out”, said Jim Thompson, President of Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports. “We strongly believe in the importance of programs which will develop our athletes into better people both on and off the field. We are excited to give our athletes, and their parents, access to Sports Brain’s professional staff and services.”
“We know that our concussion management and mental performance programs will both protect the athlete’s brains and improve their mental performance,” said Phil Pfeifer, Sports Brain’s VP of Business Development. “Having coached sports for many years, I have witnessed first-hand how many athletes’ careers are set back by concussions or by struggles with mental toughness. We are excited to offer comprehensive baseline concussion testing to help athletes protect their health as well as mental performance programs which will help the athletes develop academically, athletically and personally.”
“It is important for us to continue our efforts to fight concussions,” said Roy Kessel. “Many youth organizations and schools are looking for solutions, technologies and testing platforms to improve their ability to educate their coaches, parents, teachers and others to make better return-to-play and return-to-learn decisions. Placing one of our studios in Bo Jackson’s Elite Sports will allow us reach a diverse array of sports organizations including baseball, football, lacrosse, soccer, cheerleading and many others.”
