Point 8 Training & Development Inc. was established when three guys decided to work together in pursuit of one common goal: to help everyone reach their full potential and experience ultimate life success. From the child dreaming of making it to the big leagues, to the everyday person committing to a new fitness routine, to the elite athlete reaching the pinnacle of his or her sport, our goal is to help each person reach their highest standard of performance possible. With focus, determination, and experience we have achieved this standard through our unique brand of sports counselling and our revolutionary model of sport and recreation called The New Game Plan.

  • I’ve taken the Mental Strength Training program at Point 8 with Stephen and it has been absolutely crucial in getting me to where I am in my hockey career. I've become a lot more confident not only on the ice but off the ice as well as being much more comfortable in situations I know I wouldn't have been before. I would highly recommend anyone to take this program, whether you’re an aspiring athlete, parent, or coach.
