Student-athletes shouldn't have to go through injury alone.
If you’re an injured athlete or parent of an injured athlete, you know that the mental demands of injury are often just as difficult as the physical demands. During the recovery process, it’s typical for athletes to experience a sense of loss, missing out, frustration, and stress. But now, student-athletes don’t have to go through injury alone. With MyHuddle, injured student-athletes gain a supportive community and 1:1 resilience coaching through their recovery journey. Book your free consultation to learn more.

MyHuddle provides me with a safe space to speak to people who understand my struggles and give me helpful advice to keep moving forward." ~ Andrea, Los Angeles
