The Game Changer Awards & Benefit ended up being a remarkable evening! Throughout the event, we heard inspiring stories from professional players and coaches, emphasizing the power of sports done right and the lasting impact of positive coaching on a young person. 

"Brian welcomed me as a female into the men’s game and took away all those fears. He made me feel a sense of belonging, a sense of worthiness, that my opinions meant something and can be valued. He made me feel like I deserve to be here, I can make this happen. Without that moment, maybe my career is very different. He gave me the confidence to go on and be who I am today."
