Dramatically improve high school athletes recruiting readiness by improving their character advantage with interpersonal skills training, confidence building and performance improvement.
Our co-founder Rob Hughey played high school and college golf. As a family it was an uncertain road on Rob’s journey to earn a college athletic scholarship. So, we developed Skills Beyond Drills℠.
The character-driven interpersonal skills training and practical insights give scholarship seeking athletes and their parents a playbook to help them, like Rob, see their sports goals realized by playing at the collegiate level.
Every day we are excited to work with athletes and their parents to encourage and coach them and celebrate their successes!
In Latin, the noun Cura means “the care, concern, or attention given to something or someone.” And we care about your son or daughter’s opportunity to play at the next level.
Rob and co-founder Karen Hughey were reminiscing about Rob’s experiences as a high school golfer – all the uncertainty, the mistakes and the little victories we made on his journey to play college golf. We had an “ah-ha” moment when recalling the countless hours and balancing all the priorities of a student athlete – academics, practice, competition, jobs, family and activities.
We were inspired to develop a program to help scholarship seeking athletes and their parents tackle the challenges of getting to the next level. So, we developed Skills Beyond Drills℠ based on our experience and what we learned. It’s based on primary research with countless coaches, AD’s and athletes we’ve interviewed. “Athletic talent gets student athletes noticed, but it’s character that gets them signed.” Coaches demand well-rounded athletes representing their roster. The character-driven interpersonal skills training gives athletes the competitive advantage on and off the field and prepares them to play at the next level.
Today, Team Cura is a group of educators and athletes who have been there and understand the challenges students and their parents face. We give athletes the resources they need to be the best they can be in their sport, school and life to earn a college athletic scholarship!
“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.”

Team Cura welcomes high school and college interns from all across the country. The ideas, skills and enthusiasm they bring to our organization are invaluable.
Not only do student interns enhance our lives; they tell us we enhance theirs. Interns learn about entrepreneurship, product introductions and how to collaborate with a team. It’s a win-win relationship.
We offer intern opportunities year-round. If you’re an athlete, that’s a bonus, but not required. Here are a few of the capabilities and interests that might make you a good fit for our team:
