Stan Skolfield

Owner, ATC, CSCS

After more than 25 years of experience in the Sports Medicine and Sports Performance industry, my wife, Jenny, and I decided to pursue our passion and start our own business in Sports Performance. After graduating from University of Southern Maine where I pioneered the Athletic Training degree program, I quickly gained certifications as a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) and Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS). Since then, I have been a leader in the fields of Sports Performance and Athletic Training. In addition to presenting and publishing at the regional and national level consistently throughout my career, I designed and managed the OA Performance Center, one of New England’s first fully integrated Sports Medicine, Physical Therapy, and Sports Performance facilities. Prior to this I was an Athletic Trainer and Strength Coach for the Boston Red Sox, the University of Southern Maine, and in the Cape Cod Baseball League. My true passion is the game of baseball and have specialized in analyzing and correcting throwing mechanics of injured baseball athletes from youth sports all the way up to the professional athlete. My concentration in this area of Sports Medicine has allowed me to help hundreds of athletes rehabilitate from injury, improved their delivery, and throw harder. My love for Sports Medicine, Sports Performance, and coaching led me to create Skolfield Sports Performance, an avenue for aspiring athletes to reach their full potential. I believe a comprehensive approach to sports development is the key to athletic success. My goal is to bring the most complete training experience to our clients. I have been married to my wife Jenny for 20 years, and have two sons Kyle and Casey. I’m an avid outdoorsman and remain active in coaching youth sports.

“My mission is to empower our community’s youth.  I believe that through physical fitness, athletic development, and high personal standards we can shape a brighter future for the next generation and make America the best it has ever been.”

Jenny Skolfield

Owner, MS

After 18 years of working as a leader in one of the largest hospitals and healthcare systems in Maine, I decided to take a step back to spend more time with my family and join my husband, Stan, in pursuing our passion of youth and sports development. Having done everything from program management to strategic planning to financial management and operations, having me run the behind the scenes operations of our business while he designed the training was a good match! I am an accomplished athlete having completed two Boston Marathons and countless triathlons culminating an Ironman finish in Mont Tremblant, Canada. Prior to my triathlon years, I spent my athletic time running, snowboarding, rock climbing and mountain biking. I love an athletic challenge as it pushes me physically, mentally, and emotionally. In addition to my own involvement with our two son’s baseball community and travel sports organizations, I spent countless days and hours around professional baseball players, coaches and administration while Stan pursued his passion of baseball. “One of my passions is using athletics to empower youth and adults to take on the challenges of getting to the next level because only then will they see the amazing things they are capable of doing…physically, mentally and emotionally!

Our coaches

Football Strength Coach

Peter Remmes

Training Director/Performance Coach,  MS,CSCS,SCCC

Born and raised in Saco Maine, I attended Thornton Academy where I played football, hockey, and baseball. After high school, I attended Springfield College where I studied exercise science and was a 4-year member of the football team.  After earning my undergraduate degree, I continued at Springfield College as a graduate assistant and earned my Masters of Science in Strength and Conditioning.

My passion for strength and conditioning started at a young age while training at Parisi Speed School through high school and college. While at Springfield College I also interned at Yale University, University of Iowa, The Springfield Falcons (AHL), and the Buffalo Bills. After completing my master’s degree, I worked at the New York Giants, Florida State University, University of Iowa, Indiana University, and Texas A & M University. I am certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and through the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach. My goal is to not only help athletes achieve success in the weight room and in their sport but also to empower athletes with skills and lessons that they can take with them for the rest of their lives.

I live in Saco, Maine with my wife, Hannah, and our daughter Lily. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside, and staying active. I also enjoy reading and writing. I recently had my first book published covering training and conditioning for football.

Trevor Therrien

Performance Coach, CSCS

I was born in Biddeford, ME, and attended Biddeford High School where I was a three sport athlete. While I was there, I was a senior captain of my football team, played varsity baseball, and wrestled at the varsity level. After graduating I was recruited and attended the University of New England as part of the first ever football team in school history. Unfortunately, I was injured my freshman year and had to have back surgery. This ended my football career so instead I volunteered to help the team as a student-assistant coach. I am now an assistant coach and help the players in the weight room. My interest in strength and conditioning began my freshman year of high school when I started to train in the weight room for sports. Training in my high school’s weight room helped me realize how important it was to get stronger and the impact it had on my performance on the field. This formed a passion for strength and conditioning and led me to pursue this field at UNE. In August of 2021 I received my bachelor’s degree in Applied Exercise Science with a minor in Coaching from the University of New England. During my Senior year I applied for an internship at Skolfield Sports Performance, where I learned about program design and how to train athletes. In the Fall of 2021, I was hired as a Performance Coach and I also continue to work with UNE’s football team on the field and in the weight room. I love this profession and I want to emulate what my strength coaches have done for me and help other athletes achieve their performance goals.

“My mission is to be a life changer, and to improve the character and self-confidence of young athletes through sport and performance training.”

Courtney Sobolewski

Performance Coach

Born and raised in Derry, New Hampshire, I graduated from Pinkerton Academy as a three-sport athlete with a passion for healthy living and exercise. After high school, I attended Lasell University to pursue my Bachelor of Science degree. During my time in Newton, MA, I was captain of the Division III Lacrosse team where I earned IWLCA Academic honors. In May 2022, I graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology. I decided to go into the field of strength and conditioning because of the impact it has on athletic success in performance. In college, I participated in two rehabilitation science internships, cumulating over 300 hours of work. Here, I learned how to relate classroom work to practical application. It is an honor to be able to apply my passion for science and biomechanics to an athlete’s skillset to test their limits and make them better at their sport. As a true New England native, I love spending time outdoors in all four seasons. I enjoy skiing, hiking, boating, and much more. I can also be found attending Red Sox or Bruins games with friends and family in my free time!

“It is my mission to make the sports performance environment positive, inclusive, and safe, all while continuing to grow myself both professionally and educationally.”


Mackenzie Webb

Performance Coach, CSCS

I grew up in Wells, Maine where I played basketball and soccer. I first got into lifting weights and working out beyond my sports in high school after taking a weightlifting class, and I was hooked! After graduating from Wells High School in 2020 I attended the University of New England to pursue my bachelor’s degree in Applied Exercise Science, with two minors in Business Administration and Nutrition. During my time at UNE, I interned at Skolfield Sports Performance and at UNH Strength and Conditioning, cumulating over 400 hours of experience.

In 2022, I got my personal training certification through NASM and began training clients on campus and gaining experience coaching. While I enjoyed this a lot, I decided I wanted to focus a bit more on athletes versus the general population, leading me to sitting for my CSCS exam and starting my career in strength and conditioning.

Continuing education and work take up most of my time, but when I’m not there, you could probably find me at the beach or lake, reading, going on walks and runs, snowboarding, or caring for my 50+ houseplants.

Ben Jackson

Performance Coach, CSCS

I am from Bedford, New Hampshire, where I attended Bedford High School and played baseball and football. I graduated in 2018 and proceeded to attend the University of New England, getting my BS in Exercise Science, graduating in 2022.

The reasoning behind my path down strength and conditioning began after I finally decided to make a change in my personal life habits, dropping over 100lb and getting hooked on the fitness lifestyle. While interning in UNE’s strength & conditioning facility, I fell in love with the profession and knew it was the career for me. I’ve held a few jobs since graduating, most notably the assistant strength coach position at UNE. I am CSCS certified and working towards becoming an RSCC. I enjoy working with and coaching athletes simply because I love the process of helping my athletes reach the next level and seeing them grow as both athletes and as people.

I currently live in Portland and am enrolled in my first Masters in Sports Coaching through the University of Denver. I am both an avid snowboarder and golfer, but when I’m not doing one of those you can find me in the weight room or behind the controller of my PlayStation winning the Stanley Cup with the Bruins, since they don’t seem to want to win it in real life. As you may have guessed, my favorite sports team is the Bs, I am also a hardcore Yankees fan, sorry!

Strength Coach

Kiaya Gatchell

Performance Coach

I’m from Portland, Maine, and attended Deering High School where I played soccer and lacrosse, serving as captain for both sports during my junior and senior years. After high school, I went to the University of Southern Maine, majoring in Exercise Science, and continued playing both soccer and lacrosse. During my college years, our soccer team won back-to-back conference titles in my junior and senior years, and I was recognized as All-Conference in lacrosse during my sophomore and senior years. I also earned NCAA All-American honors. In the spring of 2024, I graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science..

My passion for strength and conditioning blossomed during the end of high school, particularly throughout the pandemic. I relished the opportunity to stay active while embracing a more individualized approach. I was especially drawn to the challenge of pushing my body beyond its limits to discover its true potential. Additionally, the habits and discipline I cultivated through strength training and sports motivated me to persist. I am eager to share these habits and mindset with younger generations, helping to boost their confidence and athletic abilities.

I currently live in Portland and am considering competing in figure bodybuilding. Until then, I plan to spend more time outdoors hiking, running, kayaking, and fishing. When I’m not being physically active, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and chasing sunsets.

Skolfield Sports Performance Coach

Jack LeBlond

Performance Coach

I grew up in Lewiston, Maine, and attended Lewiston High School where I played hockey and baseball. After Lewiston, I decided to pursue a fifth year at Bridgton Academy to play Division I baseball in college. After graduating high school in 2020, I was able to achieve this goal as I committed to the University of Maine to play baseball.

Following a disappointing redshirt year at UMaine, I transferred to the University of Southern Maine where I continued to struggle, hitting a combined .170 in my first two years with the team. At this point, I decided I owed it to myself to put in the work and become the player I knew I could always be. This would lead to a huge offseason where I went all in on doing the things that would make me an impact player. I set big goals and got to work daily in the weight room and the cages and made many important lifestyle changes with my sleep and nutrition as well as diving into the mental performance side of the game. These changes would lead to a huge turnaround season where I earned All-Conference honors in my Senior year after hitting .307 with 4 HRs and a .927 SLG% as a shortstop.

In my time at the University of Southern Maine, I’ve also had the opportunity to compile over 400 hours of internship and coaching experience working within the Strength and Conditioning program at USM and at Skolfield Sports Performance. In 2024, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from USM.

My passion for strength and conditioning began in the early years of high school where I found myself struggling to find a footing in varsity sports both from a physical and mental standing. Through a commitment to training and my goals, I was not only able to find ways to better myself as an athlete but as a person as well. It is through this journey of my own self-actualization that I have developed the passion of helping others become the best version of themselves. I feel that there is no better vessel in doing so than through sport and hope to help guide and inspire athletes to achieve their goals both on and off the field.

Outside of the gym and off the diamond, I like to play golf and tennis and enjoy the outdoors through hikes and days at the beach.
