Announcing a new partnership between Swim Ontario and Head to Head

Head to Head promotes resilience through Olympian led mentorship programs that teach healthy habits and inspire confidence. Founded by 2X Olympic Swimmer, Martha McCabe, Head to Head connects Olympic athletes with schools, sports clubs, corporate teams and more to have these world class athletes share the lessons they learned in their career. Programming for Swim Ontario athletes will be guided by a curriculum of topics like Managing nerves, Performing under pressure, Resilience, Healthy Habits, Time Management and many More.

Olympians, and national team athletes are masters of their craft. They have worked with experts in an array of domains like psychology, sport science, coaching, and nutrition. They have lived experience and know what it takes to create certain habits, and use certain mindsets in their daily life. They are in a unique position to influence others by sharing best practices, experiences, and tricks to manage many of life’s demands. We are very excited to be collaborating with Swim Ontario by connecting Olympic swimmers with young athletes in the province.  – Martha McCabe

For Swim Ontario, this partnership will help to encourage swimmers to stay in the sport long term by providing them with skill development opportunities, and a clear pathway to excel year after year. Head to Head Olympians will lead mentorship programs and share stories, experiences, and strategies with coaches, parents and swimmers to grow the sport of swimming in Ontario, and to build healthy and resilient young Canadians!

This is an exciting time for swimming here in Ontario, fresh possibilities with endless opportunities– partnering with Head to Head helps Ontario swimming one step closer to realizing this. – Dean Boles, CEO, – Swim Ontario

To kick off the partnership, Head to Head mentors including Olympic Medallist Brittany MacLean and Paralympian Matthew Cabraja will be joining Swim Ontario swimmers at their Provincial camps in November!
