"The secret to success is creating the perfect blend of sports know-how and off-the-field mentoring," says Beebe.
Victor, NY (PRWEB) October 19, 2010
Don Beebe's House of Speed, which has trained more than 100,000 athletes across the country since its founding by Beebe in 1998, will be holding an Open House to celebrate their one year anniversary in Rochester, NY.
The event will be held on Sunday, October 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Eastside Family YMCA, 1835 Fairport Nine Mile Point Road in Penfield, NY 14526.
Franchise Owner Scott Frutchey and his training staff will speak about House of Speed's training philosophy, demonstrate the specialized equipment and techniques used to help athletes excel and will be available for questions and interviews during the two hour event.
House of Speed offers both private and group training for all ages, with a special focus on youth. Through the use of certified trainers, specialized equipment and proprietary customized results tracking systems, the program concentrates not only on improving speed, balance and coordination but building character, confidence and determination.
During his nine year NFL career, Beebe played in six Super Bowls earning a world championship with the Green Bay Packers in 1997. But it was his play for the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII that has gone down as one of the most famous in NFL history. During the play which ESPN called the 11th greatest moment in Super Bowl history, Beebe caught defensive tackle Leon Lett from behind and swatted the ball out of his hands to save a touchdown after sprinting 90 yards and spotting Lett a 35 yard head start.
It is the spirit and determination he showed in that play, that Beebe uses to motivate young athletes in his program. "True character is revealed in moments like that," said Beebe. "If you're brought up right, you don't think, you just react. You react by not quitting, even if the score is 52-17. And that's what House of Speed focuses on."
"The secret to success is creating the perfect blend of sports know-how and off-the-field mentoring," says Beebe. "You can have all the talent in the world but if you don't have character and team camaraderie you can't win."
The House of Speed event is open to coaches from all sports, athletic directors, athletes and media members and their families. Media members interested in attending and/or conducting interviews should contact Scott Frutchey at (585)764-2894 or scott(dot)frutchey(at)houseofspeed(dot)com.
