AFH U: Louisiana Update

AFH University kicked off the month of March by conducting 1.5 workshops with teams from Louisiana State University (LSU) and Southern University (SU).  Student athletes revisited the core values shared in the 1.0 workshop, participated in physical activity training led by the World Fit for Kids team, chose team leaders, and began the connection process. All teams have chosen their connection and are looking forward to participating this semester.

Teams and Connection Partners for this year:

LSU Baseball visited Key Academy, a school for children with dyslexia, in February. Three players, along with the legendary Skip Bertman, engaged the children in the importance of physical education and the basic techniques of baseball.  Thanks to the players and to Skip for meeting with the kids.
