Peter Westbrook Foundation students are challenged physically and mentally. Each session involves rigorous conditioning, one-on-one instruction with Olympic-caliber coaches and activities designed to improve concentration and mental sharpness. PWF students not only learn how to be good winners and losers, but also how their actions directly influence the results they achieve. Through a combination of expertly-planned training regiments and thoughtful tournament scheduling, we've achieved unprecedented success, including Olympic, world championship and national medalists.
