Athletiq Youth Development Foundation (AYDF) is a non-profit organization focused on the long-term training and development of youth athletes. We organize our efforts as the National Governing Body (NGB) for long-term athlete development and represent the growth and development interests of youth athletes across all sports, Our energy and emphasis is youth-centric and we collaborate with NGO's, sports organizations, coaches, schools/colleges, and parents to identify, educate and implement optimal training experiences for youth athletes consistent with their own athletic interests, aptitudes and aspirations.
"I believe in......sports. But I do not believe in them if they degenerate into the sole end of any one’s existence.......character counts for a great deal more than either intellect or body in winning success in life. Athletic proficiency is a mighty good servant, and like so many other good servants, a mighty bad master."
-- Theodore Roosevelt
