While Coaching at a Local High school in Miami Dade County, Coach's Terron Colson, Randy Hacker, and Phillip Simpson discovered that their players current level of skills, education, and training needed a major upgrade. All three having played at the Pro and colleigate levels respectively, understood first hand the demands and requirements their athletes would face at the next level. In an effort to better prepare them for the college level of sports, the PHIT360 program was born.
In the Summer of 2012, we began to train, educate, and guide the first group of Student Athletes in an attempt to prepare them for the College Level. During that trial program, a few parents commented on the fact that they wished a program was available for their younger kids in elementary and middle school to attend for training.
That lead to the partnering with Victory For Youth Non-Profit organization to created the first of it's kind After school Care PHIT360 program. Accepting no government funding whatsoever, and with over 90% of contributions going directly to school children through an impressive network of volunteer-run afterschool programs, PHIT360 is uniquely efficient and effective in its life-changing operations.
THE FOUR (4) PILLARS OF SUcCESS
The PHIT360 program understands that grades have the same effect as performance on the field, when being scouted by colleges. That is the very reason why Academics is the first pillar to success. The program features a homework help and tutoring solution, to help boost grades and test scores.
" Raising a son as a single mother is always hard. Fred has always been good at football, so him going to the NFL was a no brainer for us. Then came High School and all of a sudden, he wasn't the best player on the team no more. Their program taught him a work ethic similar to the pro's and now my boy is playing for North Carolina."
" Making my momma proud has always been my goal. Coach taught me that college is a Job and Pro's is a career, both of them takes hard work and dedication."
Schools today are giving our kids so much home, they can barely find time to sleep.
Struggling to keep up with studies, has taken away our kids time for healthy activties.
Today's Parents already have a hard enough time, trying to find the extra time to spend with their kids. Stuck spending most of the time working, cooking, cleaning, and helping the kids with homework; it's a wonder how they find time for themselves.
The PHIT360 program features home work help conducted by High-School/College level mentors. Before begining any activities or games, students are guided and assisted with their homework. No one leaves until their homework is done. Our goal is to leave the parents with the problem of trying to figure out how much fun to have with the kids when they get home.
The PHIT360 program features onsite athletic performance and conditioning training. No matter the sport played, our training program will help your child gain speed, strength, and conditioning.
The PHIT360 offers three phases designed to add a new challenge each step of the way. With each new phase, comes a dramatic improvement in speed, strength, and conditioning.
" Our son turned 8yrs old and started playing basketball. Within the first few weeks at MDI sports, we realized that he need to get a little stronger and more athletic.
It was great for us to have an option that provided afterschool and athletics in one. "
SOCIAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
Kids today have a hard time connecting with kids of their own age group, because of the advancement of technology.
Our kids are better at surfing the web, playing on their tablets, than talking and interacting with other kids their own age.
" Social interaction for kids, is a extremely important life skill. The development or lack thereof will effect their ability to meet new friends, excel at work, interact with their family etc."
Community Service / Workshops
" Developing future caring leaders, at PHIT360 we believe that in order to raise a strong, healthy child; we need to develop them physically, mentally, socially, and with a strong sense of community. "
84% of Student-Athletes say their identites were shaped by the things, they were involved with or exposed to by their parents.
