STEPPING FORWARD

Victory Sports cordially invites your family to join us at the Stepping Forward: Youth Social. It is important that we join hands as parents, coaches, mentors and community leaders to ensure the fabric of our youth remains intact. The first of many steps will be to create an open dialogue geared towards positive decision making, goal setting & the road to achievement, the importance of being a student before the athlete and accountability. Our vision is to develop a system that will incite future leaders.

THE FOCUS:

• To stress the importance of our youth in today's society
• Introduce the importance of goal setting and the commitment to achieving
• The Student Athlete
• Importance of respecting parents/teachers/coaches
