Athletes' Advantage Academy wants to give every young athlete the same opportunity to have exceptional performance training, coaching, and mentorship even if they can't afford it. Your donation will provide athletic training scholarships to student athletes who can't afford our program and/or who greatly benefit from positive role models (adults and peers) in their lives (with a priority on low-income and/or at-risk youth). A $1,500 donation will provide one Annual Scholarship to an athlete. We help our scholars develop their athletic performance skills, which gives them the greatest chance of participating in collegiate sports (and thus the best chance of completing their educational degrees). A3 athletes have gone on to over 60 colleges to date. We also provide scholarship recipients with nutritional education, which is so important for optimal health and wellness and creating healthy adults who make positive food choices. We never promote the use of any supplements and always educate athletes on why food and water will make the difference! Through our mentorships with our scholar athletes, we also provide coaching and guidance on how to navigate college recruitment (which is more intense and complex than ever before), as well as how to balance collegiate sports and success in the classroom. We keep the focus on educational success and require a minimum GPA for all scholarship recipients. We want to provide as many scholarships as possible to student athletes in Kern County, as well as expand the program to help athletes access transportation to our training facility, since that is a huge road block for at-risk and impoverished individuals. Your donation is so greatly appreciated and will truly make a huge impact on the daily life and long-term success of a student athlete!!
