Future Stars Sports Clinic serves the Fort Walton Beach and surrounding communities as a tool to develop youths ages 6-13 via the power of sports. The ultimate objective of the structured 5-week clinic, which balances fun, rigorous training, and mentorship to produce a positive learning environment, is to instill in the participant's self-confidence via the mastery of sports safety and fundamentals. Further still, we create an environment where children integrate together as a team through sport, but more importantly as a community via community service events, taking ownership of our society whose legacy will one-day rest in their hands.
The clinic is conducted Saturday mornings and is divided as follows: 2 days of agility drills, 2 days each for offensive and defensive skills, 1 day for community service, and the final day for a field day. The objective is to tailor the difficulty level to the different age groups, focusing on muscular and cardiovascular conditioning, technique, and safety for each and every drill. Honing these skills in the off-season prepares the athletes to step into their sport of choice with a stronger foundation to build on. Furthermore, maintaining strength and conditioning helps prevent common injuries that result from weak muscles and fatigue.
FSSC achieves these objectives via our motto “IF WE BELIEVE WE CAN, THEN WE WILL”, and by focusing on our 5 critical pillars of success: Practice, Teamwork, Discipline, Focus, and Respect. Each clinic begins and culminates with an interactive discussion of these pillars in open-ended conversations with the participants and how the pillars apply to life and the skills taught that day. FSSC success is contingent upon the energy of a 2-volunteer to 10-participant volunteer force composed of committed citizens, military members, coaches, high school athletes, and guest speakers, including collegiate and professional level athletes that interact with the youth. Transcending sport, FSSC utilizes sports as the canvas to unite the community to mentor our youth, painting a future for confident individuals who believe their community is invested in them to achieve success on the field as athletes and in life, as responsible, committed citizens.
The obvious beneficiaries of FSSC are the youth, yet the ultimate objective is to enrich the lives of all people that make FSSC possible. For the high school athlete volunteers, FSSC facilitates opportunities to learn the value of service by teaching the next generation while promoting maturity, character growth, and positive social interactions that oppose the negative temptations that teenagers face. Additionally, it cannot be stressed enough how crucial the many small business sponsors are to the success of FSSC. Local small businesses, families, and friends are absolutely the financial backbone that provides the equipment for the FSSC athletes. Therefore, the FSSC directors strive to promote our sponsors via three sponsorship levels that include marketing benefits such as featuring company logos on the FSSC website and social media, banners at the clinics, and discount cards.
