“Bryan was self-conscious about his size and didn’t want to even try during gym time. But, one of the youth development professionals noticed him and made it his mission to get Bryan excited about the gym activities. With the help of a caring adult, Bryan is now engaged in Triple Play for the entire after school session and learned he loves soccer and dodgeball!”
