Spirit Evolution out of Eagle Pass, Texas strives to create a safe and positive space for their athletes to learn and grow.
This south Texas gym has one post-practice tradition that is pivotal in making their athletes feel special. At the end of each practice, the coaches award an athlete who stood out for their dedication, hard work and positive attitude.
The awarded athlete is then given a Spirit Pin to commemorate their hard work and achievement.
Owners J.M. and Carlos gathered inspiration for the Spirit Pin from the long-standing cheerleading tradition of the spirit stick, an award given to a squad at camp that shows sportsmanship, teamwork and of course, lots of spirit!
The coaches wanted to take the idea of the spirit stick and bring it into each of their practices. The awarded athlete gets to wear their pin like a badge of honor, pin it to their backpacks, and keep as a reminder that hard work reall does pay off.
Spirit Evolution's unique tradition helps end each practice with a burst of positivity that makes their athletes feel loved and supported.
