Power House Athletics is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Track Club mentoring and motivating STUDENT Athletes throughout Central Florida. We are a unifying of teams committed to serving at-risk and underprivileged youth ages 4-18 in the areas of Orlando, Deland, and Groveland. Separate programs that started dating back to 2011 with parents coaching their kids, close family, and friends has grown to now have 15 coaches, 3 administrators, and volunteers to help us motivate, inspire, mentor, and train over 130 athletes covering Central Florida. Most of the coaches and volunteers have also been sponsors in the past.
We celebrate excellence in the classroom as well as accomplishments in the area of athletics. The STUDENT athletes are provided education and guidance in fitness, academics, nutrition, and life skills management. Approximately half the kids are Honor Roll students with 25% achieving straight A's and top academic recognition during the school year. Getting these kids to college on academics and athletic scholarships, provides them choices which directly impacts their future and can change the vision and fortunes of their family.
Our STUDENT Athletes compete in AAU and USATF events primarily in Central Florida and yearly National Level competition in the Southeastern US. This year, we want to expose them to better competition while introducing them to college campuses at the same time throughout the Southeast United States.
Our programs have successfully qualified and sent athletes to compete in the AAU Junior Olympics and Disney Club Championships for several years in multiple events. In 2017, our combined clubs had 52 STUDENT Athletes qualify for AAU Junior Olympics of the 90 that competed. Many qualified in multiple events and medaled at Disney Club Championshps.
