A student-athlete is more than muscles, bones and joints that come together in coordinated motion to perform. They are a thinker, a feeler, a friend, a teammate—a whole person.

Children’s Mercy provides a variety of sports performance services to enhance all aspects of a student-athlete’s health. From sports nutrition to mental health to injury prevention, we help your athlete find wellness and balance as they pursue their athletic dreams.
