OPEN TRaINING

Strength training is offered throughout the year to all age groups and skill levels.

 

Training considers the whole person -- body, heart, soul, and mind -- in the context of challenging workouts in a supportive community. Participants learn what it means to live, train, and Compete Upside Down© according TO the word of God, BY the power of God, and FOR the glory of God.

 

Open Training is offered on a DONATION basis. We believe everyone should give something, but it is up to each participant to determine what they are willing and able to donate for the training.

YOUTH

JUMPSTART© Athletics for boys and girls ages 5-10 is offered in 6-week sessions at different times throughout the year. Foundational movements of sport are developed through agility, body awareness, jumping and plyometrics, core and coordination drills, and strength-based skills that lay a solid foundation for participation in any sport. Competitive games are included to apply the biblical principles of the Competing Upside Down© philosophy.
