At Daniels Sports Performance, we’re committed to supporting youth and youth athletics in the Richmond community. While we’re committed to building better athletes, we also believe in building better young people with the tools to strive for greatness beyond their playing days.

The Level Up program is a specially designed training program to motivate and inspire young people to pursue their dreams, while also providing them with the tools to achieve them.

We’re challenging and assisting youth to be the best version of themselves - level up their academics, level up their community involvement, and level up their athleticism to reach their goals.


What is The Level Up Program?

The training program begins with an interactive motivational talk on fostering a positive mindset and healthy decision making skills, followed immediately by a 60-minute speed and conditioning workout-- an athletic training regime that has proven successful for both Daniels himself, as a former professional athlete, as well as for the current youth athletes who train at Daniels Sports Performance.

Who is the program for?

This program has many benefits for kids of all ages, specifically youth athletic groups or community organizations serving at-risk youth in the Richmond, Virginia community.

What separates Daniels Sports Performance from other similar programs in the area is the extensive history Coach Daniels has working with at-risk youth and his genuine investment in their success. Coach Daniels has the skills to not only properly coach and train youth athletes physically, but he’s shown the ability to connect with the kids on a personal level in order to empower and motivate them towards self-improvement athletically as well as personally.
