“There are two ways of exerting one’s strength; one is pushing down, the other is pulling up.” – Booker T. Washington
The youth development program for student-athletes at Athletic Performance Ranch is comprised of several components, all having to do with providing meaningful and positive academic, athletic, social and emotional activities for our mostly socio-economically disadvantaged youth, 5 to 18 years old. Emphasizing our participants’ positive potential to succeed is stressed.
A major objective is our use of sports to reach youngsters who are often very difficult to otherwise to reach. We are then able to impact our participants in many positive ways which keep them in school and striving for excellence in all areas of their lives. We are helping our student-athletes get college scholarships across the country that are academic and/or athletic.
We emphasize maximizing one’s own positive potential through constructive criticism and positive feedback. We are helping our student-athletes earn college scholarships to universities across the country on a variety of academic, athletic, and financial aid scholarships.
