The priority of academics in a college setting takes some student-athletes by surprise. Good time-management skills is all it takes to maintain that good balance. "This teaches our student-athletes what it means to be accountable, dependable & academically disciplined.
Another Chance was designed for youth with behavioral challenges and/or juvenile justice issues that caused them to be rejected in normal societal programs. Here, when they accept the ACT CHALLENGE, they will be accepted with open arms, held to high standards through tough love approaches and help them to respect themselves and others, all while gaining a fresh new perspective on life, getting an associates degree and getting positive goals instilled, to enable them have a better life.
We understand that participation alone in a sport is not the magic formula for turning around the lives of troubled youth, however, it certainly provides many benefits that can help teens who are struggling in school, facing problems at home, or even made a bad legal choice, feel more connected to their peers that have made better decisions. The lessons learned through teamwork and sportsmanship are ones that youth can take into their adult life, such as how to communicate & respect others, learning how to take a loss and how to work as a team. We offer our ACT Students strategies to successfully manage time and money, how to make positive choices, how to deal with health and anger management issues, respect training and improving communication skills are all offered as part of our ACT Program.
The NCAA Eligibility Center, formally known as the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse is where recruits will need to register and be cleared in order to participate in college sports. College sports programs will be unable to offer Division I and II recruits athletic scholarships until they have registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center.
Each of the three NCAA divisions have separate eligibility rules that potential recruits are required to meet. Student-athletes need to decide which Division level they will be best matched for in order to determine which NCAA eligibility rules they will fall under. Athletes need to keep in mind that registering with the eligibility center is only necessary if they are planning to compete at the NCAA division I or division II level.
***NOTE*** It will be necessary for you to create an Certification Account to make official visits to Divisions I and II schools or to sign a National Letter of Intent.

We've all had that dream of running from that Division One Tunnel, Smoke blowing, teammates pumped, fans screaming, band playing and tv cameras zooming. There's no feeling like it in the world and now you're here and the only thing standing in your way of your future success is two things: (1) Actually getting the chance to prove, you got what it takes to take the D-1 or D-2 stage and
(2) Getting the administrative formalities out of the way by paying your athletic fees. This helps us run the program and also ensures we have a program to help train you for the next level.

The goal of our quarterback training is to build the core mechanics of the complete quarterback. We believe that timing, tempo, accuracy and efficiency are tied into footwork. We start with weight distribution, balance, center of gravity and creating the solid base when coaching the footwork mechanics. QB's are more accurate and get the ball out of their hand faster and have a higher rate of yards after catch when their footwork is solid.
We offer speed, agility & strength training to athletes of all ages and abilities, from aspiring elementary schoolers to inspiring collegiate athletes! By utilizing our advanced training protocols, we are able to develop a stronger, faster and quicker athlete.
Basketball training to us is combining strength and skill with neuromuscular and cognitive training to advance your performance. The faster your brain communicates with your body, the more effective and efficient you will be on the court.
