The S.A.F.E Academy is a comprehensive student success program that helps high school students and student-athletes enter college with the confidence and success tools that produces a stress free, exciting college experience.
Using personality, cognitive, and emotional intelligence assessments, your student will choose the right school, with the right professors, in the right major, and graduate in the right amount of time with confidence and positive internal dialogue. 


All students whether traditional or athlete, receive personal coaching sessions that ensure their success based on their "why." Our system ensures both athletes and traditional students manage and navigate higher education with confidence and tools needed for success

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. Emotional Intelligence is proven to be a key indicator of human performance and development. People higher in EI communicate effectively, form strong relationships, and create powerful coping strategies. EI can be measured – more accessibly and less controversially than IQ – and unlike IQ, it can be substantially strengthened and developed.

The EQ-I 2.0 (Emotional Quotient Intelligence) is widely used with athletes at both Olympic and professional levels of competition. An important question for developing athletes may be how aware their coach is about the importance of Emotional Intelligence in maturing athletic performance.

The Sports Leadership Guide is a guide in the art and way of leadership in athletics. Founder Scott Cvetkovski lived the life of an NCAA Student-Athlete and has developed this guide to be time effecient and effective in walking athletes through different situations that can occur on athletic teams. His experience, coupled with his Master of Science in Executive Leadership and Change brings a new wave of leadership to those who wish to lead.


The core structure of the guide is based around the principles of Emotional Intelligence developed by Multi Health Systems: Self-Perception, Self-Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making, and Stress Management. Using EI as the core base, the guide branches out into the many angles of being a student-athletes and use techniques and tools to lead their team to victory. At the end of each chapter, the student-athletes will learn one part of Tuckman's Developmental Stages in Small Groups as a tool to measure the success of their teams. 

The Positive Sports Leadership Athletic Development Program develops the three areas that create a true performing athlete: Mind, Body and Spirit. When an athlete has balance between the Mind, Body, and Spirit, the athlete’s mindset is in line with their deep personal goals. This creates positive energy throughout the body giving the athlete an athletic edge by providing energy to muscles needed to perform their sport. Since our thoughts, words, and actions are creative we are responsible for their impact.


Like causes attract like effects, so that negative thoughts, words, and actions attract negative outcomes, while wholesome thoughts, words, and actions attract positive outcomes. To the ancient Chinese, Mind, Body, and Spirit are one, not three, and exercise, meditation, and philosophy all work together to improve and integrate every aspect of development. The philosophy is a three legged stool, when one of the legs is weaker than the other legs, the integrity of the stool will collapse.
