Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Aim High is striving to take underprivileged kids and give them a beautiful, bright, purpose-driven future. Our goal above all else is to ensure that each and every child who walks through our doors believes: 1) That he/she has been created special by GOD 2) HE has set apart a purpose that only he/she can fulfill 3) The plan that GOD has for his/her life is far greater and more satisfying than anything they could ever work out for themselves. At Aim High we want every child to understand just how much they are truly loved by our Heavenly Father. In Him they will find self-worth and admiration. We use gymnastics as a tool to teach youngsters all these wonderful truths. The sport of gymnastics is also a great tool for instilling valuable character traits in young children. We do our best to teach traits such as self-motivation, determination, self-confidence, strength of body and mind, perseverance, desire, work ethic, and so much more. These traits will be instrumental in shaping their futures. By exposing these kids to fun challenges and then encouraging them to overcome and be victorious, we inspire the development of such character.

Here are just a few of Aim High's strategies to train children in the sport of gymnastics while also teaching them about their identity in CHRIST. We offer exciting and challenging classes to provide adequate training opportunities. We have a God-fearing and God-loving coaching staff that challenges each child individually while maintaining an active class atmosphere. We close out each class with a 10 minute bible study session to remind the children every day that God made them each special with a purpose and a plan for their life. We provide quality, up-to-date gymnastics equipment to teach new skills in a safe and effective environment.

With the wonderful coaches God has provided for Aim High and the Godly leadership that heads the organization, we have every capability to achieve our goals. Romans 8:31 says "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"
AMEN.
