TEMPLE, TX — Level Up, a new young athlete program out of Temple's T3 gym, needs your help sponsoring local kids.

Started less than a month ago, the Level Up program has its eye on sharpening the fundamentals of young local athletes. Focusing on strength, agility, nutrition, movement and more, the program looks to help athletes ages 6 to 22 hone their skills.

"I've always wanted to do this. I grew up as an athlete that didn't have the opportunity for the one-on-one training or group training," explained Level Up coach, Reggie Wilson

The program comes with a heftier price tag, which is why the gym has begun an adopt an athlete program where people can help sponsor athletes through the six week program who may not have been able to participate otherwise.

"I was like, "What can I do to make it so parents can get their children into this program?" Six weeks is $500 and I was like, "Not everyone can afford this but there's kids out there who need it,"" said Randalyn Bailey, mother to two sons in the program.

People interested in sponsoring athletes through the program can contact T3 at 254-742-2020 to contribute in the Level Up athlete sponsorship fund.
