PROJECT ATHLETES works hard every day to make an impact on the lives of our athletes. Our outcomes are tangible as we work with the pre-teen and teen population to stay focused on education with the power of organized sports. We are continually expanding and we ask that you consider a donation on this day of giving to PROJECT ATHLETES. Thank you for your generosity.
CHAMPAIGN, IL- Nearly 30 middle school students join the PROJECT ATHLETES Team as PROJECT ATHLETES opens it's third LOCKER ROOM. Opening Day at Franklin Middle School in Champaign, IL was a success!
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.
Enjoy the photos and video from Opening Day!
PROJECT ATHLETES is excited to announce a new Locker Room Opening at Franklin Middle School in Champaign, Illinois. Start date is Monday November 7, 2016. PROJECT ATHLETES Coaches will work with students after school every Monday and Wednesday 3:00P-4:30P. The Locker Room is open and FREE to ALL Franklin Middle School Students.
Franklin’s Locker Room opening marks the first junior high school Locker Room for PROJECT ATHLETES. PROJECT ATHLETES received an overwhelming amount of requests and advisement that there is a great need for PROJECT ATHLETES programing in junior high schools and that students would benefit greatly from PROJECT ATHLETES athletic training and mentoring.
Junior high school students are one of the most important age groups to offer supervised activities, guidance, mentoring and opportunities to enhance one’s confidence and sense of belonging.
PROJECT ATHLETES offers junior high students a “team” to be a part of. PROJECT ATHLETES will be the “team” for students who are seeking off-season athletic training from their sport and for students who did not receive a spot on a sports team they tried out for.
PROJECT ATHLETES fosters life’s positive outlooks in ways that help guide athletes on their journey through junior and senior high school. Focused on physical conditioning, this elite structured mentoring program recognizes and promotes academic standing, goal setting and balance in their lives.
PROJECT ATHLETES is always in need of support to maintain and grow operations to serve as many young athletes as possible. Monetary donations help expand Locker Rooms and add more coaches to Locker Rooms so more students can attend sessions. Monetary donations also help ensure all student athletes have the proper athletic attire and nutrition to set them up for success. Students receive athletic t-shirts and shoes and shorts are provided to those in need.
