THE SPORT OF SCHOOL ACADEMY

At The Sport of School Academy, Christian Buck supports student-athletes during the most critical times of high school or college through weekly meetings in person, or via Skype. ​

This program focuses on three basic components necessary to achieve success: Academic Psychology, Sport Psychology, and the Recruiting Process.

The Sport of School Academy was developed to help student-athletes become the best they can be on the field AND in the classroom. They will learn the importance of grades during the recruiting process, but more importantly, it will help them recognize that learning and knowledge is what will make them successful in school as well as in life.

Meet Coach Buck

After 11 years on the American Stock Exchange, trading and brokering equity derivatives, Christian left "The Floor" and earned his Masters in Sport Psychology, and soon after founded Get It Done Consulting (now called Christian Buck Consulting). He has consulted with professional and amateur athletes alike, implementing mental conditioning programs in a wide variety of sports, including lacrosse, golf, tennis, soccer, basketball, track/field, crew, fencing, hockey, and baseball.

 

Coach Buck consulted with the Brown men’s lacrosse team, helping them reach the 2016 NCAA Final Four, posting the best record in Brown’s history, and finishing the season with an unprecedented ranking of #3 in the country. In 2017, he helped the Sacred Heart University Men's Lacrosse team turn their program around from a 2-14 record the previous season to 9-5; the most wins in the program's history, and the first winning season since 2002. He is also the Goalie Psychology Specialist for G3 Lacrosse founded by renown lacrosse goaltenders Kip Turner, John Galloway and Adam Ghitelman.

 

At the same time while consulting with teams to improve overall performance, he started The Sport of School Academy which helps student-athletes improve their grades by applying the same approach athletes use to improve in sports. Over the years, Coach Buck's clients have seen dramatic results: One client went from an 78% average to a 94%. Another went from an 83% to a 96%. And another went from an 89% to a 97%!

 

He was the Mental Coach and Goalie Specialist for the Avon Old Farms boy’s varsity lacrosse team and was the Head Coach of the Desert Mountain High School girl’s lacrosse team, leading them to the 2008 Arizona state semi-finals. Additionally, he coached the Arizona State All-Star Team in the Girl’s National Tournament in Baltimore, MD (’08), and was the Assistant/Goalie Coach for the Northeast Team of the Underclassmen Under-Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic (2010 - 2015). As a mental conditioning coach at the IMG Academies (Bradenton, FL), Coach Buck consulted with athletes attending the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, David Leadbetter Golf Academy, and the IMG Basketball, Baseball, and Soccer Academies.

 

​Chris is also certified to teach “Fearless Golf” – the research culmination of Dr. Gio Valiante which emphasizes the physiological effects of fear during competition. Coach Buck has consulted with golfers on the Web.com Tour, PGA Canada Tour, Gateway Tour, and the college circuit. He has also worked with world-ranked Long Drive competitors. 

 

​Chris grew up and played lacrosse in Wilton, CT, winning two state championships during his time there and finished his four year high school career with a 46-1 record as the starting goalie. After high school, he went on to play lacrosse at Ithaca College.

TESTIMONIALS

WILL ESSIGS
GETTYSBURG COLLEGE
"Thanks to you our son has found his inner motivation to succeed in high school, college and beyond. By far, you are the best coach he has ever had! I'm so glad we did not resort to tutors who invariably end up just doing the work themselves. Our only regret is that we did not discover Get it Done Consulting earlier. Thank goodness it's never too late to get on the right track."
ELIZABETH O'SULLIVAN
NOTRE DAME
“Chris immediately helped our daughter understand that colleges are seeking balanced athletes, and while success on the field will get a “look,” classroom performance is a must for recruitment.
Chris has helped transfer her dedication, work ethic, and enthusiasm from the lacrosse field into the classroom. Chris’ calm, direct, and realistic assessment of strengths and weaknesses has translated into a noticeable improvement on the field. 
So, even if another blown out knee creeps into her future, the classroom conditioning he has taught her will be a lifelong gift.”

 

ISAAC PAPARO

"When I first started working with Coach Buck I had an imbalance. An imbalance between lacrosse and academics. I put all my efforts in lacrosse to better my game. But for school, I never pushed myself to get better, more educated, and not motivated to succeed.
After working with Coach Buck, I learned how to use my same work ethic that I had in lacrosse and implement that in academics. Once I started gearing my strong work ethic towards both lacrosse and academics, my success was unstoppable.
Coach Buck helped me understand that the little things are the ingredients that will help me succeed. Just like in lacrosse, it's the little things that help me stand out.  The same principle in my lacrosse game was used in school to help me do well. Work ethic."
