Owner – Louise de Jager
Louise is an absolute sport fanatic who demonstrates a unique ability to understand elite athletic performance as she has played a variety of sport at a National level (representing South Africa in Gymnastics, Track & Field athletics and Hockey).
By combining her naturally developed intuition of sport experience with her Master’s degree in Sport science, specializing in Sport Psychology (mental toughness development), she has a competitive edge when consulting and working with high performance athletes across sporting codes.
At a young age she developed an overwhelming love for sport, growing up with two brothers, she had little to no choice and was obligated to play various garden games which included cricket, soccer, golf, tennis, swimming, and hockey. At the age of 5 years she picked up her first hockey stick and soon after, hockey became her Olympic dream. This dream, combined with her competitive attitude and determination, aided her in the process of finally representing South Africa in 2009 at the Junior Hockey World Cup which was hosted in Boston, USA. Thereafter, she formed part of the National Women’s Hockey team where she gained invaluable experience as not only a player, but also in high performance conditioning, as well as the psychological side of professional sport.
Louise is a highly motivated, driven and optimistic individual who is passionate about elite athlete development across various dimensions which include (but not limited to) mental toughness/mental skills development, strength & conditioning, fitness & most importantly the holistic development and management of athletes.
