At P.R.I.D.E. Academy we are focused on teaching America’s youth, not only the fundamentals to be successful in “Sports”, but the fundamentals to be successful in LIFE. We teach children what it takes to achieve their goals the RIGHT WAY.
We create a strong foundation built on the following:
P. Principles – If you want to be happy, enjoy life, and achieve your dreams, then you need to remind yourself every day about your principles. Everyone should have a certain set of goals to shoot for and rules to live by. Think of it as a code of conduct for yourself.
R. Respect – Treat people as you hope to be treated. Respect your elders, your parents, your family, your teachers, your coaches, your referees – everyone! Accept people as they are. Value all points of view, even if they are different than yours. Be open to being wrong. Be supportive of your teammates and friends. Be kind…ALWAYS. Respect YOURSELF!
I. Intelligence – Having the mental capability to reason, plan, solve problems, think outside the box, comprehend and learn quickly – and to learn from experience. Kids will make mistakes at home, at school, on the athletic field, and in life. Having the intelligence to learn from those mistakes is what we strive for!
D. Determination – The quality that makes you continue trying to do or achieve something that is difficult. School can be difficult. Playing Sports can be difficult. A child with more determination can have greater success in life than the ones with the most talent. NEVER give up!
E. Effort – Using physical or mental energy to do something. School requires both. Sports require both. And success in life definitely requires both. Like the great Michael Jordan said, ‘I can accept failure, I can’t accept not trying.’
