RISE Founders

Rebecca Soni &
Caroline Burckle

Our friendship dates back further than sharing an apartment in the Olympic Village in Beijing 2008. Fast forward 7 years and we officially established our business, RISE Athletes, in 2015.

Our goal: to create a community of Olympians that empowers the next generation of athletes through mentorship. We are excited to provide world-class support to youth athletes and generate personal and professional growth for Olympians all over the world.

What They’re Saying

Working with a RISE Mentor has helped my daughter to see how much she has accomplished in her short life and what great things that she has yet to achieve in her future. Her mentor has gotten my daughter to see and value herself as a person, athlete, teammate, etc.
— Stacy (RISE Parent)
I realize now that I don’t need to train harder, I need to train smarter. My mentor taught me to face competitions with excited energy rather than just hoping I do well.
— Annie (RISE Athlete)
