A recent survey conducted by the NCAA found that the majority of the 37,000 student-athletes surveyed are experiencing high rates of mental distress since the pandemic hit. As parents, we know you’re struggling with the idea of choosing between your kids’ mental health and preventing them from COVID-19 exposure.

With so many athletic and training facilities locked down indefinitely or unable to put your mind at ease about the safety precautions they’re taking to protect you and your kids, we can certainly understand.

And that’s why we’re proud to announce outdoor training sessions – a way for you to get your kids back to the sports they love – without having to choose between their mental and physical health. We’ve been back in action with outdoor training since July 1, and the parents and our young athletes are thrilled about the safety measures we’ve put in place to keep everyone safe. We’re social distancing with intimate class sizes. We’re wiping down equipment and we’re getting your athlete ready to compete when sports return (hopefully this winter).


Let’s work together to protect our young athletes’ mental well-being and preserve their ability to compete on a higher level in the sports they love. Register today to secure a spot in our upcoming outdoor sessions.

Sessions fill up fast – so don’t delay.
