In this episode, we learn from our first coach on the podcast. Gavin Arroyo shares with Brian the lessons he learned about mentality, time management, and goal setting from his mentors growing up in a competitive swimming club and then advancing through his career as a collegiate swimmer and water polo athlete. He also shared how he made the decision to transition to specializing in water polo and pursuing the USA Olympic team . His self-awareness during cultural experiences playing abroad in professional European water polo leagues has truly given him perspective as he works with other young aspiring athletes looking to find themselves too. There are so many mental training tools and nuggets in this episode that you are going to want to listen to it multiple times. Finally, as a division 1 collegiate coach at Long Beach State University he shares his unique advice for athletes and parents exploring the right match for their collegiate experience.
