About Arizona Cheetahs
Our program mentors, teaches, and trains youth ages 6-18 by providing a positive environment and an alternative to the negative factors facing today’s youth.
In the pursuit of excellence, we are striving to get our youth to believe in themselves, take risks in life, overcome adversity, handle defeat, thrive on challenges, and become winners. They are developing a positive outlook that turns "ordinary" competitors into winners. Teaching them how to focus their commitment, overcome obstacles, and achieve greater personal satisfaction. Giving everyone the opportunity to achieve success at his or her own level, thus fostering self-confidence and motivation. Training is structured to strengthen the athlete’s mental attitude as well as their athletic ability - helping them realize their potential both on and off the track, covering the psychological concepts; concentration, winning, losing, and competing successfully.
