What is the League?

The league is broken up into 3 unique tiers.

The different tiers provide multiple options for gyms and programs to efficiently increase productivity on teams. This gives you as the program director or owner the flexibility to field numerous styles of teams compliant throughout the world.

These tiers are specifically designed to build a solid foundation for students and increase numbers of customers throughout each program.

The Leagues help target all types of customers – further expanding interested clientele and the ability to field a team for every individual athlete.
