LIFT US STRIVES TO CREATE CONFIDENT, WELL-ROUNDED YOUNG SUPERHEROES WHO WILL BE THE LEADERS OF TOMORROW.

We believe this happens when our superhero athletes and our superhero coaches are given the time, space, and resources to work together with a sense of purpose. And we believe the world benefits from young leaders with these resulting qualities:

Confidence

Courage

Extraordinary Abilities

Fighting Spirit

Sense of Responsibility

Strong Work Ethic

Humility

Knowledge

Mental Toughness

Drive

Patience

Selflessness

"When athletes stand alone on the competition platform, it is an opportunity to build confidence. They realize that their desired results are not promised or guaranteed. They realize that their destiny is ultimately in their own hands. That is where well-rounded and confident youths lay the groundwork to becoming equally confident adults. That is where heroic qualities shine."

LIFT US IS ON A MISSION TO OVERACHIEVE. WE ARE DRIVEN TO FIND THE BEST COACHING, THE BEST MENTORS, AND THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF EDUCATION AVAILABLE TO OUR TEAM.

Combine that with the best facilities in the country and you have an unmatched foundation for success. We use that foundation to create complete human beings — not just athletes with a singular focus on competitive success, but well-rounded people who will continue to succeed beyond their careers in competitive athletics. Winning inside the gym has its value, but winning outside of the gym is our goal with every Lift Us Superhero.
