Universal Athlete Program

The Universal Athlete Program provides high school and college athletes physical, spiritual, and mental training. This program offers FREE training and discipleship to student athletes in the Houston area (mainly Katy & Cypress but we will serve any student athlete). Many athletes today lack training in character and spiritual development which is a dire need in our society today. Especially with the rise of Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL), our goal is to change the athlete’s focus and goals from attaining riches and fame to valuing the development of godly character and morals. By developing good character and strong morals, this program will help the youth increase their earning potential and enhance their quality of life. This training and discipleship can lead to sustainable and meaningful entrepreneurship or employment in their future. Coach Mike is one of the few trainers in the Houston area that combines athletic training and discipleship into one program.
