In this story, Katy Cupsworth, aka The Performance Warrior, takes us on a journey in which she longs to become a professional women’s footballer. Katy possesses plenty of natural ability, including a ferocious left foot that can deliver a ‘Screamer’ of a shot. She undoubtedly has the potential to make it to the Women’s Premier Football League (WPFL). Her aspirations stretch further as she wants to be a star player and even win the World Cup for England!
Katy is also introduced to the magical powers of Fred, whilst trying not to let Doubting Debbie into her head! Through her highs and lows, successes and stresses, Katy discovers that her footballing ability will only take her so far; she must get her attitude right if she is to overcome barriers which are preventing her from achieving her dream.
Every child has a window of opportunity to develop their potential and be their best. The Performance Warrior is a simple, yet effective way to enhance a child’s development so each child can make a positive impact in the world. Every child deserves the opportunity to be a success…are you going to provide this opportunity?

Since the death of his Father, and Danni, his beautiful young niece, Ross felt compelled to create a legacy to honour them. He did this by creating the CUPPA Book Series which helps young children develop a confident mindset. Following the loss of his Mother in 2017, Ross was determined to create another legacy, and this was to be Katy Cupsworth.
No matter what happens in life, Ross is a firm believer that every experience can ultimately help you grow and improve as a person, as long as you have belief. In Ross’s own words, “it’s not who gets there first that counts, just as long as you get there!” This echoes Ross’s struggles in life and his continual quest to improve himself and reach his full potential.
Ross has been involved in educating children, young adults and senior professionals for over 30 years, has visited over 1,000 schools, colleges and universities, and has probably changed the lives of one million people. In this time, Ross has developed not only his knowledge, but crucially, the way he tries to understand, engage and empower his audiences.
Beyond this acquired professionalism, Ross has felt the real sadness of his own academic, health and life challenges. This has been borne out with him failing all his qualifications at school, going through acne face and body scarring, incurring disability and experiencing the devastating deaths of both his parents. It was a result of this devastation, of losing his ‘life mentors,’ that he decided to create a legacy to honour them both.
This started in 2017, when he released the CUPPA Book Series. This legacy of helping children reach their full potential in life, has been further bolstered now in 2019, with the release of Katy Cupsworth. Belief in oneself, and reaching for your potential in life is a precious gift that Ross’s parents gave to him, but which wasn’t fully appreciated by Ross until they had left him.
