Phase Training is a 6-week personal athletic program. Twice a week for 1.5 hours, youth learn testing techniques, muscle awareness, a stretch & agility routine and a training circuit they can do at home and increase their tests scores. All athletes are tested before and after showing improvements they made on their own! Phase Training II is more sport specific as athletes realize their talents.
We provide scholarships for youth to participate in all of On Deck's programs, events, clinics and unique opportunities. All current foster and adopted youth are always automatically scholar shipped. On Deck also provides financial aid for community opportunities like AYSO, Little League, Club Volleyball, Track teams, etc. How do you expect A+ grades with D- materials?
Today many youth have an advantage of getting professional lessons in their chosen sport or activity. Do to being rather expensive, unfortunately there are more who don't. To help level the playing field and give our youth the same advantages, On Deck has provided hundreds of pro lessons over the years free to our identified youth. Please help us continue this and make that a reality for more.
Unfortunately, too many times, youth in the foster system and youth in general, have things of importance taken away from them. One thing that we found is that if we could provide an experience, no one could ever take that away! Over the years our Advisory Board has provided opportunities to our youth that money could not buy. They have been front row at Angel and Dodger games, seen Ron Capps race his Napa Auto Parts Funny Car, met players at UCLA and USC and the list goes on. They still talk about those experiences till this day. We are excited to partner with the Greater Houston communities and offer experiences to youth only found in Texas! Please help us continue this for youth in your community!
Napa Auto Parts Funny Car World Champion, Ron Capps, takes a few minutes during race day when he didn't have too for an important message.
10 years ago, On Deck Foundation's founder, Brett Pierce had seen enough. Unfortunately not much has changed since but is as true today as it was back then. He is in between tears and wanting to throw a right hook.
