We Beam With Pride For These Athletes!

For the month of May we wanted to celebrate some of our athletes who we feel go above and beyond our expectations. We have selected these athletes because they are continuously pushing themselves, taking individual responsibility, come prepared to class, and help their fellow team mates and classmates when needed.  As a result of their hard work we have seen their performance level increase greatly. 

As coaches and educators there is nothing more satisfying then seeing our athletes achieve their goals and grow into polite, respectable, and hardworkingindividuals.

Come check out our May board and see why these athletes “Brighten Our Day!” If you see one of the highlighted athletes around the gym tell them congratulations!
