Athlete Tutor is seeking high school athletes opinion to help create platform.

My mission is to teach student-athletes the mental tactics, strategies, and skills required to simultaneously succeed in school and sports, and eventually in their careers.

I need your help narrowing down the wide range of potential topics to the ones that matter most to the people that I’m creating this for in the first place: student-athletes, parents, and coaches.

Your responses will help me create a blog that provides free, valuable, and well-researched content. There are no right or wrong answers. Your opinion is what matters to me.
