The Raise the Bar Youth Foundation is designed to initially instill our student athletic youth with lofty expectations of themselves and their future. It will offer athletic programs, leadership development, educational resources, training and more for young athletes that aspire to play at higher levels all while exploring the unique issues specifically related to our athletic youth.
Why is the program necessary?
Our athletic youth program will be one of the best support networks offered in the Chicago.. We will address the needs of our athletic youth, including training, proper rest, recruiting issues, AAU, a place to meet, talk, and have fun with youth who understand each others issues. With the program, kids who would otherwise never meet because of location can develop friendships and bonds with other athletic youth. Issues such as an increase in responsibility, maintaining academics, summer ball, and recruitment anxiety are addressed by peer members under supervision of caring adult leaders.
