EDUCATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!
Educated Athletes First, or EAF, is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and athletic purposes for athletes. Our mission is to improve educational awareness in athletes that aspire to play sports while furthering their education on any level. We aspire to not only improve the education opportunities but to also assist in preparing the athletes and their support systems in as many capacities as possible on their journey to academic and athletic success.
Raising the Academic Bar
EAF partners with local school districts to emphasize the importance of academics in the lives of young student-athletes. Our partnerships allow us to provide enhanced academic structure and support for each EAF Student-Athlete through various programs and opportunities.
Setting the Standard
EAF believes in the positive impact of sports can have in the lives of young people. In addition to our academic programs, we provide professional athletic training and unique opportunities for each EAF Student-Athlete. Our athletic programs emphasize educational aspects of all sports while helping to develop athletic performance.
LIFE SKILLS AND DEVELOPMENT
Shaping the Leaders of Tomorrow
It is our goal to provide well-rounded guidance in the lives of each EAF Student-Athlete. We work to develop life skills that strengthen personal growth and greater self-esteem at all ages. We hope to raise the expectations that each EAF Student-Athlete has for their academic and athletic futures.
