The AthleteDISC Profile for each camp athlete.
Athlete Assessments’ AthleteDISC Profile is the only one specifically tailored to sport and athlete. Each assessment includes a 12 minute online survey and results in a personalized AthleteDISC Profile Report (with summaries for easy use). It details the individual’s personal style, strengths, limiting behaviors, communication preferences and the environment they perform best in. Get practical strategies that will help you coach athletes based on their individual needs. Know the behaviors that produce their best performances for greater consistency when it counts the most. Help your athletes build self-awareness to make improvements and take greater responsibility for their behavior on and off the court or field.

Client Case Study
A Champion Creating Future Champions
Mary Whipple, who won three Olympic Medals, two Gold and one Silver, plus five World Championships, knows exactly how to achieve extraordinary results. Now, she shares her knowledge at her Coxswain Leadership Camps through her consultancy, The 9thSeat. She uses strategies and skills that win on the water and in life beyond the boat including self-awareness, leadership patterns and growing a capacity to foster team dynamics. The impact of these skills is immediate, and the benefits are long lasting.
“I’ve been searching for a way to measure progress of leadership skills gained during my week-long summer camp. I was feeling uninspired to have the kids fill out yet another survey until I found Athlete Assessments. Having the kids take their AthleteDISC assessment and discussing the results on the first day of camp set the tone for the rest of the week. It gave them the tools to become self-aware but more importantly to become aware of the dynamic of the group.”
In addition to rowing and coxing techniques, Mary has incorporated AthleteDISC Profiles into her camps to help focus on leadership, effective communication in and out of the boat, team dynamics and self-awareness.

Client Case Study
Achieve Success as a Player and a Person
Coach Burleigh regularly runs Gatorzone Soccer Camps which allow young soccer players to be exposed to top-level coaching and facilities. Too often sports camps are only filled with drills and fun activities. Becky’s camps cover this too, but put a deliberate focus on developing athlete’s as whole player’s. Time is spent dedicated to self-awareness, understanding how to contribute to a team, and how athletes can value their team members.
“We get a lot of feedback on DISC…who doesn’t like learning about themselves? [The athletes] love being able to identify their coaches and teammates. In our camps we want to focus on how do you achieve success as a player and a person.”
Using this knowledge to incorporate AthleteDISC Profiles into her camps has allowed her to add value to her athlete’s development as people, players, future student-athletes and members of the wider community.

There are so many benefits!
The primary purpose of using the AthleteDISC Profile as part of your camp is that it develops self-awareness in the athletes and provides a framework to understand, then build effective relationships with others. Why is this important? Because in sport, what differentiates the best is never just physical or technical ability. Instead, it is who has the best mental, emotional and relationship skills. As Joe Gibbs said, “You don’t win with X’s and O’s. What you win with is people.” DISC Profiling is the fastest and most effective way to develop the ‘people side’ of sport. Use it to improve communication, teamwork and how people get along. (The AthleteDISC Profile is appropriate for athletes 15- years and older.)
Easily include skill development in communication, teamwork and building relationships – much needed experience for younger athletes.
The AthleteDISC Profile provides practical information to enhance the athlete’s self-awareness, identify what boosts them up and what drags them down.
Your camp athletes will enjoy learning and developing in these important areas. It is extremely valuable and fun.
Include impactful and valuable classroom time to break-up the on-court/field and conditioning sessions.
Use in preparation to gain a deep understanding of each camp athlete and have the ability to tailor the delivery of your camp for what will be most effective with this group of athletes.
Be strategic as a coaching staff with how you work with the athletes individually.
You effectively have Bo Hanson on your coaching staff as he is ‘there’ via live video conference for the debrief session.
Prior to the camp, Bo Hanson also goes over the results of the group of camp athletes with you so you are fully informed and prepared.
Be thoughtful in how you group athletes within the camp to manage behavior!
Incorporate leadership development as the AthleteDISC Profile identifies how each athlete can be a leader in their own unique way.
Your camp athletes have a tangible report to take home and share with their coaches and parents.
Additional benefits for when it is a ‘team camp’ as it provides a fantastic opportunity for the team to further understand each other and for their coaches to get a clear picture of their team dynamic (we include this for you).
Most importantly, be different to every other camp available. Get ahead and stay ahead!
