"I am building an army of courageous young leaders who seek challenge in spite of fear."
- COACH HOLLY
At RSR, we see sport as one of the most effective mediums, especially for young women, to learn critical life skills and build confidence.
Consistent hard work is coupled with mental skills training and guided self exploration to empower you to begin to define your values, motivation and purpose through sport.
We believe that confidence, self-efficacy and self-esteem can be built by attempting (and only sometimes achieving) challenges. We focus on the process, which is why we train our athletes to Love the Fight. Our athletes learn, train and live by the RSR SEE Framework: Seek Challenge, Expect Discomfort, Embrace Work.
It is our job to create a safe environment to work hard, face your fear of failure and then manage the outcomes of that effort in a productive way.
As coaches, it is our job to push you just outside your comfort zone.
In doing so, you expand your comfort zone and are able to push a little harder with each effort. In order to reach your full potential, you must learn how to be more brave to take risks and face fear and you must learn self-compassion to manage challenges, failure and defeat.
My athletes regularly ask me, "What is success at RSR?"
My goal at RSR is to change your life.
I want you to do the work.
I want you to feel more confident.
I want you to take action in the face of fear.
Respond when your coxswain calls the question.
Step forward when your knees are shaking.
You will still feel fear - but you will stand firm in the face of it and pursue your purpose.
