"Lindsay Basalyga has a stronger soccer resume than most in this area. From pedigree, to playing, coaching, and education she's at the top. Yet she still understands the value of high school soccer! Never is there a tweet or conversation saying "you should be doing this or you should change that". Because of this approach, she impacts players, coaches, and total programs. I've personally learned so much because I don't ever feel inferior. She comes into the program vulnerable, humble, and gracious while opening herself up which allows us all to learn from her knowledge and experience. Most high school coaches have other career, so we don't have the time to build the resume we would all love to have. Having mentors, like Lindsay, gives us all confidence to grow.Erin Edmonds: Lebanon Girls Soccer: Head Coach
"We have been with Competitive Edge from their beginning, and I cannot think of anything we could bring in over the summer that would be better for our team culture. I like their camp because it goes beyond x's and o's and technical training. That's all part of it, but what they teach and preach and celebrate extends to life off the pitch as well: overcoming adversity, teamwork, decision making, and above all competing for and with each other. The coaches at Competitive Edge follow up and check-in throughout the season so it becomes more than just a week of camp over the summer. It is part of who we are and what we do. It is all tailored to our program and our culture because their coaches take the time to get to know our players and our coaches before, during, and after the camp. Simply put, we are a better program, players and coaches alike, because of our work with Competitive Edge."David Sandmann: McNicholas High School: Boys Head Coach
Competitive Edge has redefined and heightened the importance of culture in high school soccer. Lindsay Basalyga's partnership, vulnerability, and active pursuit to always prioritize the human element makes the experience with Competitive Edge world-class. I have always viewed Leadership as a scope of influence and the influence of culture she has on the game of soccer in Ohio is unmatched. Our future success will always be contributed to our progression to reach an elite culture and I know Competitive Edge will play an integral role in that journey. I am thankful for the friendship that I gained through our collaboration!Nathan Baer: Ottawa Hills Soccer: Head Coach
