    WE EMPHASIZE AND REWARD EFFORT IN OUR CLASSES

     

    Our goal is to teach our athletes that your effort is important. Hard Work = Improvement = Success which will get you results. Each class we select an Effort Champion which is picked by the class instructors for the athlete who worked the hardest and went the extra mile. This is not given to the athlete who jumps the highest or who runs the fastest but who gives the most effort for that class. This allows each and every athlete the same opportunity to be the Effort Champion. Champions then have their picture taken with one of our Championship Belts and our posted on our Northland Training Facility Facebook Page.
