Kaos Group Training, GameTime Prep work together to increase awareness of physical and mental health
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — At the KAOS Training Center (pronounced chaos), you might think things are a little chaotic. No pun intended.
But Travis Norton and his staff are working hard to create a foundation to help young athletes develop good training habits. It all starts with the right mindset.
“I think everything helps you along the way. But I think you have to get the knowledge first,” said KAOS Managing Partner Travis Norton. “So we first teach them to think before they move. A lot of it alludes to how they’re going to do everything so well.”
Youth sport as a whole has taken on a new identity over the last decade. With so many different avenues and possibilities coming to the table, it’s kids like Spencer Parsons and his friends at KAOS who like to stick to the basics.
“And attending this camp helps you work on the fundamentals and a lot of the good techniques that you need to use in the sport that you play in,” says Parsons.
And believe Ed Hill, John Paul II’s head football coach, when he says that. Kids who train off-season stand out from the rest of the competition.
“If they’ve already been in these environments that they’ve trained in, they stand out. These kids are ready because they know what we’re asking of them physically,” Hill told ABC 27. “And understand the training they’re asking of you.”
But, of course, it’s all about making sure that the youth in the community are able to live as healthier a lifestyle as possible. So Ed and his organization, Game Time Preps, did their part and helped KAOS give these kids a solid foundation to build on.
“So we’ve teamed up with Simply Health and a few other health organizations in town to be able to go out and offer lunches and things like that for kids,” adds Hill.
