Kids

It is important to engage youths with healthy lifestyle behaviors so they can make good individual choices. Our teachers & youth coaches provide insight on the foundations of physical activity, nutrition, positive mindset & overall wellness. We promote youths to become advocates for healthy changes in their communities.

Futures Club

Futures is a network for helping youths live an active & healthy lifestyle through fitness, nutrition & mindset. We educate parents and youths with information and strategies on how to improve physical and mental health. Our club is a safe & positive place for parents & kids to go for information, solutions and advice. We provide activities for youths to get more involved in their community. We help kids discover their vision and alleviate the pressure they're under today in performance situations & overall life.


Youth Fitness & Sports Performance Training

Core Fitness & A-Live has teamed up to create highly effective sports performance programs for ages (7-18). We realized there was a need for functional sports training with an added emphasis on the mental aspects of playing sports. Our versatility & personalized approach to help each athlete’s needs is what sets us apart from other coaches & training programs. Core Fitness is a state-of-the-art center with professional equipment & we just added athletic turf, which is ideal for multi-directional movements & safety.


Fundamentals of Physical Activity & Nutrition

Physical activity, nutrition and positive emotions are extremely important for a child's physical and mental health. Kids will learn to discover actions that enhance a healthy environment at home, school and their community. A-Live provides  resources and tools to promote healthy lifestyles for parents and kids. Kids will learn the benefits of eating real and fresh food and practice applying these tools to make informed food and beverage choices.

History

Futures/ACAMP was formed in 2008 by Richard Briant, who had a vision of forming a superior staff of coaches/facilitators to help kids achieve success through sports, media arts and activities. He had a vision of coaching youths as a profession and realized there was a need for quality camps and after school programs in the Los Angeles area that focused on each and every child. He realized not every child is the same and creative individual attention is what brings out the best and inspires a child. Welcome Futures!

Coach Rich has spent his career on brainstorming and educating himself on the art of coaching and training youths. He is a certified personal trainer and nutritionist.

“Richard enhances the mind and spirit of being a young athlete and inspires each child to enjoy life through sports and activities.”

Richard Briant (Founder & Executive Director)
Coach Richard Briant has a passion for helping youths live a fun, active and healthy lifestyle through sports and media arts. Richard’s 18 years of coaching experience inspires kids to enjoy sports and improve performance through physical and mental conditioning. He teaches teamwork, motivation, determination and self-esteem which prepare kids to be successful in sports, academics and life.

Coach Rich developed a vision after he constantly saw kids struggling or lacking confidence while playing sports. He realizes kids are sometimes mentally fragile and can be discouraged from playing sports or activities without proper coaching/instructing. Rich recognizes each talented child is unique and may need to be coached differently to have fun and maximize their full potential and enjoyment.

Coach Rich holds a Bachelor’s in Communications from Oswego State and completed MBA classes at Lemoyne College and Woodbury University. He has worked as a producer, independent filmmaker, actor, and producer/editor at Fox Sports.
He is a certified personal trainer and nutritionist and has 8 years of private coaching (one on one) and training experience. Coach Rich played college baseball and has extensive knowledge on all sports and media arts Futures/ACAMP offers through playing, coaching and studying over the years. He worked at Fox Sports for 13 years.
