“Coach Kyle Brown’s program is all about challenging yourself to achieve your true potential.”

Never give up! During my 12 year career with the US Women’s National Team, I had many roles. I was a starter, I was dubbed the “super sub” and I was even cut from the team. It would have been easy to give up and walk away but I chose to fight. In 1996 I was cut from the Olympic team but instead of giving up, I worked twice as hard and eventually not only earned a spot on the roster of 16 to represent the US at the Atlanta Olympics, but was a starter and finished the tournament as the leading scorer. You have to always believe in yourself and learn to embrace the challenge. When things are hard, you learn to appreciate and enjoy the successes even more! The World Championship and the gold medals are cherished, but what I cherish more are the friends I made along the way and the life lessons I was able to extract from the wins as well as the challenges. Coach Kyle Brown’s program is all about challenging yourself to achieve your true potential.
