Win the most important games you'll ever play!

If school is preparation for the game of life, let's approach it like a sport and graduate as first round draft picks equipped to take on life's challenges. Let's train our brains like world class athletes train their bodies and let's decide right now that the championship is ours for the taking!

Let's show up at every practice, let's do our best every time, let's learn from our mistakes, let's do what NEEDS to be done especially when we don't feel like doing it, let's follow our coaches plays, let's do more than our coaches ask of us.


Let's WIN!

"Practice, practice, practice. The only way I did well on my studies was to be precise and constant on my practice (homework), just like I am precise and constant when practicing hoops... School is a mental competition. You are trying to 'beat' the class but instead of jump shots or goals, you use your brain to beat tests and quizzes."

"I like to see more kids get more competitive in their academics. To treat it like a sport. Because it is the #1 thing you can equip yourself with for the rest of your life. When you have an education, essentially you’re giving yourself more options, which are more weapons to succeed in this life and in this world."

Paigan Roberts, Teacher

Just watched some of these guys perform for Galliano Elementary School and I must say they were INCREDIBLE. Mr. Jerry Burrell was a great speaker and the message he told to the children was beautiful. Thank y'all for being positive role models for our kids and for putting on one stellar performance.

Gerald Evans, Principal

Greg Mueller and ACRODUNK captured our 7th and 8th grade students’ attention from the minute they started their program and kept their attention the entire time. This was one of the best programs we have seen at our school.
