Phase 2: “Unite” Overview

While having a passion for something is important, there are other areas in a child’s life that play into their future success, whether that be on or off the field. In Phase Two, our goal is to continue building on our kids’ love for sports, while also uniting three crucial areas of their lives that will be needed for them to be successful, whether that’s in their career, relationship or hobbies.

In this phase, each child will enter into ZeroZero-partnered programs that promote their mental, physical and emotional well-being; things like trauma therapy, continued athletic training, ACT preparation and after school tutoring options.

Our ZeroZero Experiences give our children the opportunity to learn about careers in sports first handedly from current sports professionals that are working in and around the game. Each experience will be specific to the organization and group of children we partner with on the enrichment program.
