If you listen to the greats like Usain Bolt, Michael Jordan, Shelly Ann Fraser Allyson Felix and many others; they will tell you that most people only see their success. Majority of folks never see the sacrifices, dedication and hard work they endure from childhood throughout their careers. While their friends were on long summer family vacations, they were either training for the season or attending tournaments.
Seeing how much our kids endure, it is remarkable how resilient they are. We are a few days past the one month mark since our season and the AAU Junior Olympic Games has concluded and yet we are at it again. Even though our season doesn’t start until November, we are currently in the transitioning phase. This is a light twice per week training which abstain our kids from being sedentary.
Our kids aren’t different from most being that they’d rather be elsewhere but they are committed to their future and being successful.
