A note from Kacey White

As a retired professional athlete, I am thoroughly enjoying fulfilling my passion of working directly with mentoring athletes on an individual level. I am grateful for both my playing and coaching career that has spanned 20+ years in the game where I have been able to gain a wealth of knowledge to pass on to future generations in the sport. 

The beautiful game provided a pathway for me to compete at the highest levels of sport as a United States Women’s National team member, gain confidence in my abilities both on and off the field, battle through uncertainty and heartache, and continue to achieve the highest of levels I had always dreamt about taking part in. Little did I realize at the time, that the character development, experiences, and lessons learned would translate to life beyond the game itself. I have a deep passion for the sport and I cherish the opportunity to partner with and guide elite athletes that share a similar journey to the road I traveled myself.

The specificity of helping the individual is a driving force behind the K21 Sports Consulting mission as our mentoring programs allows us to dive into the details of the advancement of your career from both a playing performance and personal development perspective. 

I am grateful for those that have mentored and poured their energy into my life and career and I look forward to returning the favor to the current generation of elite athletes. 

Whether you are a professional athlete looking to fine-tune the details of your game, a collegiate athlete looking to partner as you navigate the numerous opportunities presented or an elite youth athlete at the beginning of your journey, please reach out!

I look forward to connecting with you,

Kacey
