A3 & ME

Your support provides support for athletic training, adaptive sports, and wellness programs for athletes with special needs in our inclusive environment. Athletes experience pride in their accomplishments alongside peers while becoming healthier as a result of their own actions. Our program empowers athletes, boosts confidence, and celebrates community. A3 has been a partner with Special Olympics Kern County for 4 years.


Your support provides tuition scholarships to A3 Academy for student athletes! $1,500 funds one annual scholarship, which provides performance training for athletic development, nutritional education, mentorship, guidance to navigate college recruitment, and ongoing educational support and workshops to ensure academic and life success. This program is the catalyst for everything we do and was the idea that started it all. Since day one, we have been committed to providing exceptional, dynamic, and safe training for athletes of all ability levels and we give athletes the opportunity to train and learn even when family income does not allow it.


Your support funds our program for Veterans, Military service members, & First Responders. Through health, fitness, and competition, we provide a positive community for our local heroes. This program began in 2014 when A3 offered no-cost athletic training to Military Recruits to prepare them for Active Duty, and has expanded to provide Veterans with non-clinical transitional assistance into the general population.
