ABOUT

OUR MISSION

Team Cura’s mission is to give high school student athletes the character edge they need to stand out in a competitive world, on and off the field.

It’s competitive.  You never know, the interpersonal character preparation including a confident introduction, reputable leadership, stellar personal brand or, one of our favorites, the handwritten thank you, your athlete polishes with Team Cura may just be the differentiating factor that gets them the roster spot!

And at the end of the day, no matter if your athlete goes on and plays at the collegiate level or not, those same skills learned with Team Cura will help them get farther with any next endeavor.

OUR STORY

In Latin, the noun Cura means “the care, concern, or attention given to something or someone.”  And we care about your athlete’s opportunity to play at the next level.

Co-founders Karen Hughey and her son Rob Hughey, a former collegiate golfer, had an “ah-ha” moment when recalling the countless hours and balancing all the many student athlete demands – academics, practice, competition, jobs, family and activities.

They were inspired to develop a training program to assistance athletes balance it all and learn the life skills to put themselves in the best position possible to advance to the next level.

Today, Team Cura is group of educators and athletes who have been there and understand the challenges student athletes and their parents face. The Skills Beyond Drills and the Parent Playbook are designed to provide the character advantage needed in order to play at the next level.

“The parent who successfully supports their athlete to develop character-based interpersonal skills can be the difference maker when coaches are ready to offer scholarships.”

“I highly recommend athletes take advantage of the Skills Beyond Drills training program.  It is a huge advantage for being recruited.”
