Athlete University has three core initiatives: Sports performance, developing student athletes, and fighting childhood obesity. In our Sports Performance Program, we train all athletes in specific skills pertaining to their sport. The High School Development Program, athletes are trained for their specific sport and are mentored through educational seminars, group discussions, and public speaking. To fight childhood obesity, we created our Active Kids Program. As part of the program, we offer weekly lessons to teach the fundamentals of speed & agility, balance, strength, and flexibility. In order to raise more awareness, we also attend various community events related to kids.
In all of our initiatives we implement the Gold Standard as the foundation for success. The Gold Standard consists of working hard, being accountable and paying attention to detail. Life’s possibilities are endless with these principles.
