    Hello,

    I am a representative of Optimal Training where our motto is “Your EDGE to getting AHEAD of the competition”. Our goal is to help Plano youth get to the next level in sports and life. We pray that after youth go through our 6-week training program they will become quicker, faster, and more agile. Youth who are in high school will have their stats from their vertical and 40 yard dash sent to schools of their choice in order to help get their name out to prospective college coaches. We realize some athletes get overlooked or overshadowed by more visible high school programs or players; and we want to serve youth by being another outlet to voice their abilities.

    Additionally, non-student athletes that complete our training program will be in better shape; and feel better about their appearance since, this is the time where peer pressure and the desire to be accepted is keen in their lives.

    We hope that you will allow us to share with parents and youth of your congregation about our Summer Conditioning Camp held July 7 -Aug. 15th. For all camp participants who indicate at their time of registration, they heard of Optimal Training through their church, we will donate 10% of the cost of participation per youth to your congregation.

    Respectfully,

    John Alexander
