Trey is a nonprofit youth sports startup on a mission: empower student-athletes to achieve lifelong success. We provide high school athletes with the tools to make informed college decisions, succeed as student-athletes, and successfully transfer sport-based leadership skills into life.
The Three Pillars of Trey’s Programming
Our signature workshop series provides Trey Athletes with guidance and preparation for college, leadership development, and peer-to- peer learning with other high-potential athletes.
Via sponsored outings and ongoing one-on-one communication, Trey Athletes receive individualized mentorship from a dedicated mentor. Our mentors are former college and professional athletes who have firsthand experience with the challenges and opportunities unique to elite competition.
A Letter from Trey Athletes’ Co-Founder & CEO, Rebecca Feickert
I was born and raised in Goodrich, North Dakota, a tiny farming town of less than 100 people. Including me, there were two of us in my high school graduating class. And from early on, I was obsessed with basketball. Little did I know, the game would miraculously change my life…twice.
I leveraged a homemade highlight film into a full basketball scholarship at the University of Kansas. There, I earned a BS and MS in Accounting as a first generation college student. After graduation, I obtained my CPA license and gained six years of experience in New York, Switzerland, and Bolivia working in public accounting, private equity, and sport-for-development for EY, Partners Group, and A Ganar, respectively.
In 2014, I was shocked to realize that many of my athlete peers were struggling emotionally and financially in life after sport. Determined to help other athletes avoid the same fate, I packed up and moved to Boston to attend Harvard Business School. While earning my MBA, I was blessed with an ever-growing number of team members obsessed with understanding and solving the problem of competitive athletes failing to realize their potential. After over two years of research and solution-testing, our efforts culminated in the 2018 launch of Trey Athletes, a nonprofit leadership development and college preparation program for top high school athletes.
