A Distinct Methodology

We do not stick logos on shirts and send a coach into the wild. All of our coaches operate under one system, utilizing the workouts and methods written by Matt Dixon. We are committed to on-going training, support and mentorship of our coaching team.

  • You cannot be coached by Purple Patch without buying into our core belief of integration of training into life.

  • Every coached athlete is viewed as a Purple Patch athlete not one who is simply led by coach X.

  • We believe coaching is a life long endeavor of learning and growth. Our coaches receive weekly on-going training and education led by Matt Dixon.

  • Our coaches are not left out to pasture, we have a peer to peer support system as well a head of coaching to ensure consistent feedback and guidance for all of our athletes.

  • At Purple Patch we have a saying, “Evolve or Die”. You can expect the application of our core methodology to evolve season over season, with the entire coaching team engaged and contributing to the development.
