Career Highlights & Athletic Organization Affiliations
Throughout his career, George Carlo has had the opportunity to work with a plethora of dedicated athletes. While working with the George Washington University basketball team, Carlo developed a unique framework which assisted him in identifying certain parameters that could predict an athlete’s sustained performance excellence. Very much data-developed, Carlo’s produced conclusions have proven repeatable, as well as transferable across sports. At the start of the new millennium, in 2001, the Sports Performance Coach translated said parameters into techniques introduced to golfers on the PGA tour. This led to Carlo representing the PGA tour as an Advisor as well as the development of the Golf Life Foundation.
In 2004, George Carlo joined forces with the Detroit Tigers when he was asked to consult the team’s pitchers. Initially, the goal was for Carlo to assist the pitchers in developing their target accuracy. However, when his work was championed by Tigers General Manager Dave Dombrowski, Carlo was retained to represent the team as Medical Advisor. By his second year with the Tigers, his Sports Performance Coaching shifted focus from exclusively benefitting the pitchers to training the entire program. Remaining in the sport of baseball, Carlo has also previously partnered with the Jamestown Jammers, a summer collegiate team of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. All the while, Carlo worked independently as a consultant to individual athletes in the NHL, NFL and NBA.
Now, in tandem with his Sports Performance Coaching and nonprofit work with the Secrets of Champions Foundation, George Carlo continues to teach his techniques to the masses through the publication of articles and books focused on his findings.
