The Reaching Your Dream Foundation had a terrific 2015 in many ways, but mostly we were inspired by the difference we are making in the young players lives. In 2016 we will be focusing more on supporting individual players in very deep and meaningful ways and will begin implementing our Fitness Forever Program, a community engagement program of activities in under-served communities by helping adults and youth in the areas of health and fitness.
Here are some of the benchmarks we are hitting in 2016:
• Rocky Carson will continue to work with Featured and sponsored players to develop their interpersonal skills to be ambassadors of the sport and to properly brand themselves to their best advantage
• Recruited Mike Manoske, a well-known and respected professional Personal Coach, who has graciously volunteered to work with RYDF Featured Players and supported players on how to maximize their potential and learn to think strategically about their current situations and future.
• Began to implement the Fitness Forever program which will allow RYDF sponsored players to promote and teach health and fitness activities, including learning to play racquetball, to the youth in under-served communities beginning with the cities of Stockton and Oakland
• We have allocated $10,000 ($5000 each) to support two Recreational Vehicles which transport players to professional tour stops. The foundation has deemed this the RYDF Road Warriors
