If a Warrior is identified for the competitive track, emails will be sent by staff/coaches notifying them with instructions to begin maintaining proper nutrition and develop strength training plans. They will also have suggested focus sports based on overall assessment.
Warriors can self-identify and will be handled in the same manner; receiving personalized coaching/mentoring. Warriors are then priority ranked (1, 2, or 3) based on 1) number of times identified, 2) number of Sports identified, 3) warrior expressed interested and 4) shown improvement 5) Active Monthly Performance Plan.
