The Balanced Excellence Training Method (BETM) teaches youth organizations the benefits for children, coaches, and parents now participating in youth sports that participation and continued activity should be a primary goal of all youth sports.

Their approach simplifies and balances children’s athleticism, both mentally and physically. This approach embraces the fact that they ARE children, not mini adults or micro professional athletes. They provide and model leadership for the development of theory, research, and applied practice to youth sports, exercise, and healthy activity.

Not only do they teach kids the fundamentals of the youth sports games they play for fun, but they are continually finding ways to model positive behavior, and the importance of community, accountability, humility, and manners.

"It's not my mission to decide when, if, or how the light goes on for those participating in youth and high school sports. My goal is to just keep flipping the switch."‚Äč

"Children learn from internal realization, not external force!" - Another amazing quote from V.J.
