The SPARTA Junior Leadership program (Level 1) was launched this past summer and has already helped to build over forty leaders in the Fishers’ youth community. Their Inspire2Impact training program emphasizes personal development and organizational leadership through an interactive and positive environment. The program is designed to be life-changing by focusing on questions like: Who am I?, What do I stand for?, What is my purpose?, What are my goals? and Are you a bystander? Registration is currently open for the program’s Level 1 course at:

The program grew from observing how SPARTA’s coaches naturally encouraged leadership skills and used positive mentoring in group and private coaching classes at the facility. “The youth were responding to our coaches. They want and need to be challenged to a higher calling and we found that when they are challenged, they become inspired to step up,” said partner and Junior Leadership coach, Luke Dunnuck.

Senator Jim Merritt, Majority Caucus Chairman commented on the program by saying, “Sparta’s Jr. Mentor program is putting young people on a path to leadership.  These kids are finding their purpose and being equipped to not only lead but to build new leaders.  I couldn’t be more excited about the young leaders coming out of this program that will have a positive impact on their families, peer groups, sports teams, and the schools they attend.”

SPARTA, an elite 21,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility for both adults and youth, serves Fishers and surrounding areas with a variety of programs and classes, from the Junior Leadership program to sports performance, football training and classes in boxing, yoga, wrestling, Muay Thai, among others. Unlike most facilities, they offer a monthly membership fee, allowing members to enjoy unlimited training in all SPARTA classes. The combination of their culture of leadership and the quality of their coaches, offers SPARTA members, the confidence that they will be respected and guided, to achieve successful results they are pursuing.

After going through the program, several students offered testimonials, including Kirsten Conner, age 16: “The junior mentor program was an eye opening and life changing experience for me. The atmosphere put out by the coaches and other members was extremely positive throughout each meeting. This made it very easy to open up to the group and create lasting friendships with one another. The knowledge I have attained has enlightened me on a deep level and changed me as a person. I am eternally grateful for the wisdom I have gained over the past 10 weeks that will help guide me to success in the future.”

In addition, Sparta works closely with Fishers Fight Club, (Fighting for the Youth of Central Indiana), a 501c3 non-profit which helps fund kids in the central Indiana area, by offering meaningful activities.
