When I grew up there was no one coming to my neighborhood offering an opportunity to learn the proper skills and technique it takes to be a great football player. I can guarantee you there were no Hall of Famers offering to dedicate 3 days out of their lives to help youth athletes. I wanted to change that. The camp design has been in my head for years. I finally had the right team in place to launch something special.
The response has been overwhelming. Parents, youth athletes, G.O.A.T.s who call me daily wanting to be part of upcoming events all say the same thing – this is the best of all worlds for a high school athlete. This camp is about making a mark with the next generation of high performance athletes – improve their safety and longevity in the sport.
About G.O.A.T. Skills Camp Coaches
More Than a Camp
We’re proud of our commitment to additionally make a mark in the communities we serve. This year we are making more prominent what it means to be a G.O.A.T. off the field by making our “giving” visible. We are in the development business – and a well-rounded athlete must learn how to grow with their city through giving.
The G.O.A.T. Skills Camp® has partnered with His Grace Foundation – a non-profit organization in Houston, TX benefiting Texas Children’s Hospital’s Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. This year we wanted to include and make more visible giving back to the community. Building the event with His Grace allows our youth athletes and their parents to see the G.O.A.T.s walk the talk of service and leadership.
