While spending more per capita on healthcare than any country in the world, the U.S. ranks 27th (out of 34) in overall health and life expectancy.
Starting in 2009 as the Football University (TFBU), David Luera envisioned a football training program that would allow dedicated athletes to focus on reaching their full potential, while teaching them responsibility, leadership and determination. The road David took to get there, however, was filled with his own share of obstacles and challenges.
After graduating from High School, David joined the US Army. Filled with confidence and big dreams, but lacking a path to connect effort-to-results, it took a Drill Sargent to challenge and inspire him to reach new heights. David began to understand how effort, drive and determination were directly connected to his ability to realize his goals. Once he discovered this, the only thing standing in his way…was himself! His “what if” questions began to turn into “what’s next” questions!
Once the fire was lit, all of life’s obstacles became minor speed bumps. David became a college graduate, a published author, and a business owner fueled with the desire to help take our Future Leaders to the next level. In 2009, David had 8 athletes attend his first off-season football training camp. In 2013, TFBU joined forces with the Elite Training Academy (ETA), and expanded our focus into academics, performance training, baseball academies, and more! By the end of 2014, we had over 175 registered athletes in our program and had awarded our first College Scholarship!
As local area parents, we are committed to raising kids with a solid foundation in: Health, Fitness, Academics, Confidence, and Character. We believe this is one of the most important things we can do for the future of our community, and our children.
By creating a comprehensive youth program that offers a balance of academics, fun, fitness, health and personal development – in a safe and secure environment – we aspire to give our youth the direction and tools they need to be successful in life. We offer parents the ability to leverage the entire program for maximum results, or choose only the part that makes sense for them.
By showing the value of hard work, proper studying techniques, hands-on-tutoring, athletic training and a foundation grounded in health – we believe our youth will be more prepared to take on the challenges they will face in the future!
As parents, we are all committed to providing the best life for our children. The questions that keeps us up at night, however, is…
How do we do this?
How competitive will our children be in this Global Economy?
To answer that question, it’s probably best to take a step back and understand our current “place in the world.”
While spending more per capita on education than any country in the world, the U.S. ranks 31st in math, 23rd in science, and 17th in reading.
In spite of our poor performance on health and education, the U.S. ranks 1st in one thing: self esteem.
While many of us already struggle to keep up with the demands of our jobs and daily lives, finding ways to help prepare our kids for their future can be an almost overwhelming challenge. With the three facts discussed already, it feels like we are fighting a losing battle.
So, what if there was a way to provide our children with:
By creating a comprehensive After School Program that offers a balance of fun, fitness, health and personal development – in a safe and secure environment, we aspire to help kids lay the groundwork for a successful life.
By showing the value of hard work, proper studying techniques, hands-on-tutoring, and a more healthy group of children – we believe our kids will be more prepared to take on the challenges they will face in the future!
