Amanda Sobhy A-Team

A Team

Behind every successful athlete is a team of people. My team, or the “A” Team, has been in the making since I graduated university in 2015. As I strive to be the best version of myself, both on and off the court, I need to make sure I surround myself with the best team possible.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE! None of my success would be without the help of my team of coaches. They provide me with the technical training, practice sessions, strategy insights, mental focus, proper nutrition, and structured training schedule in order to help me prepare, and be at my peak performance level for tournament play throughout the year.
