PCA-Colorado partnered with The Combine Courts, a basketball and all-sport training facility in Colorado Springs, to provide a fun day of physical testing and character training for 50 young Triple Impact Competitor® Student-Athletes, as well as coaches and parents. The event was funded by El Pomar Foundation, also in Colorado Springs.
Participants were first treated to a Triple Impact Competitor keynote speech by PCA Board Member and trainer, former F16 pilot and Air Force Academy football player, Anthony (Roby) Roberson.
Athletes were then divided into groups and rotated around several high tech, state-of-the-art, agility skills testing stations and contests with the Combine Courts staff. Many of the tests conducted were the same tests used at the annual NBA pre-draft combine in Chicago!
The day concluded with a personal mastery and goal-setting session by trainer Amy Manson, followed by lunch.
The event was the first of its kind for the Colorado Chapter, where a sports facility played host to a workshop. It’s a model that PCA-Colorado Chapter Executive Director Tom Puzio hopes to replicate:
There are so many high quality facilities for youth and high school sports throughout Colorado, and we feel that there is a tremendous opportunity to partner with them and make these amazing facilities the perfect breeding ground for character education and athletic development.
Special thanks to Travis Flowers and the rest of the staff at Combine Courts for opening up their facility to PCA-Colorado, and to El Pomar Foundation for funding the event and their continued support of PCA-Colorado.
