Fraser Valley, BC, Canada


Nienhuis, PhD(c)

Professional Affiliations:



Aside from a couple years spent in Ottawa while completing a Master’s in Human Kinetics, Carl has spent the majority of his life nestled in BC’s beautiful Fraser Valley where he strives to maintain a delicate work-life balance in order to spend as much time as possible with his wife and four children.

Outside of building Lego mansions suitable to house Barbie and her friends, Carl teaches in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Fraser Valley, coaches with UFV's women’s volleyball, actively supports numerous athletes and performers across a wide-range of disciplines and competitive levels, and is slowly completing his PhD research on play. Carl’s performance support is built on holistically integrating the mind, body, and spirit into an understanding of competition as a mutual striving towards excellence.
