“On the court, I had to learn how to play with and lead my teammates to win games, while off the court, Top Achievers gave me many volunteer opportunities that allowed me to grow into a leader.”

“I was always undersized compared to my competitors in most sports. With Top Achievers, I learned to develop a mental edge and skill set that allowed me to be elite and compete at all levels. That same mental edge and focus on skill set have allowed me to advance my career to the next level.”

“Top Achievers challenged me to pursue excellence in whatever I was doing and taught me that pursuing excellence is actually just giving your best effort at all times. TA helped me reach my goal of becoming a professional basketball player, but the attributes I’ve developed there will help me throughout my life.”
