The Repechage Group is Beth Gummere and Peter Darling.
The Name, Explained
“Repechage” is a sports term. Beth is a rower — that’s where it comes from.
Here’s how Wikipedia defines it: “[A] practice amongst ladder competitions (those with a series of rounds of competition) that allows participants who failed to meet qualifying standards by a small margin to continue to the next round.”
Here’s how we define it:
- Winning the tournament (or regatta or whatever) takes more than just winning the first race.
- If you persist, you can still come in first at the end.
- Success is a result of consistency, patience, effort and focus.
- An initial setback means nothing — it’s all about whether and how you keep going, improve and get better.
That’s what we like to think we do.
That’s what we teach.
