Hey, I'm Joe! 👋

Having previously been schools county champion and multiple National Age-Group Champion, I went on to represent Great Britain in the 400m hurdles.

I graduated from Loughborough University with a Sports Science degree where I was also Captain of the athletics team and set up The Athlete Place!

Using my experience and expertise, and with the help of my mum, I've created The Athlete Parent Place to inspire, educate and support the next generation of athletes and their parents.




Believing your athlete has what it takes and watching them reach their goals is every parents dream but you’ll also want to know you’ve done everything you can to help them get there.

To help me achieve my goals, my mum, Caroline, went out of her way to find out all she could about nutrition, psychology and everything else (literally)... Our platform has been designed to save you all of this effort! All the information you could need is now in one neat place.

So, for those who want to go the extra mile… this platform has been created to help you gain a better understanding of areas that impact sport performance and athlete wellbeing whilst also showing you how YOU can help your athlete.



Access for Teams

We work with all sorts of institutions, governing bodies and teams to provide access to our platforms at a larger scale.
