NEW YORK—October 29, 2019—Morgan James’s new release, Building an Uncommon Champion: Help Your Child Redefine Success, by Jennifer Matras, emphasizes the benefit of human connection and character building within athletics to train highly-skilled human beings. By applying philosophies employed by Navy SEALS to build strong leaders and including anecdotes from her years of experience in raising successful athletes, Jennifer Matras lays the groundwork for athletes to develop into better friends, teammates, and students.

More than a book that focuses on building speed or strength, Building an Uncommon Champion shares details of Competitive Edge Skating’s program, which is designed to give children an uncommon advantage. Jennifer Matras’ program includes proven techniques to enhance and sustain an athlete’s abilities in the arena, weight room, and classroom along with building world class leadership skills. Matras understands that many young athletes dream of making the cut on a collegiate, professional, or Olympic level, but without specific, necessary training and discipline, their dreams may not become a reality.

Building an Uncommon Champion helps parents teach their athletic children lifelong principles to be confident, mentally tough, and capable of developing deeper, more meaningful relationships. Jennifer Matras provides tools for parents of children seeking excellence within their chosen sport, instructing them in how to grow athletically and socially. Matras introduces a transformational, faith-based approach to coaching and mentoring. She applies  her life and work experience to each lesson within Building an Uncommon Champion, in order to offer proven and beneficial advice for motivated adolescents.
