Opening Day's workout focus was "acceleration." Participants learned about how improving their acceleration will improve their success in their specific sport(s) and their fitness over all. Athletes will see success in their workouts when they accelerate to their top speed more rapidly, and their short sprints will be faster at the end of the program than at the beginning.
Opening Day mentoring discussed the importance training off-season from their sport and how PROJECT ATHLETES is now their "team" if they are not involved in an organized sport. Participants were also reminded that participation in PROJECT ATHLETES includes striving academic improvement, attending school and living with a strong moral character.
PROJECT ATHLETES provided participants with t-shirts and shoes to students in need of them.
