Rise Up Leadership

Developing Leaders in Our Communities

Premier Academy recognizes the impact that youth can have on our communities and as such are invested in the growth and development of youth that are involved in our programs!

Rise Up Leadership program is an 8 to 10-month program that is built to channel youth energy in a positive way, but also it prepares the next generation of leadership in the workforce and in our communities.

This program has been an important component in what makes Premier Academy so special. When you look at our current staff and coaches, many of them began as Jr Coaches and have grown and evolved into strong leaders themselves. Our main goals are to provide participants with a positive coaching experience, on-going learning and the skills and education for them to continue on in coaching and into the future. We are striving to develop more than athletes; we are developing people.
