The middle school years are crucial time in development for young athletes both physically and mentally. High school sports in orange county are extremely competitive and the jump to high school can be daunting for a young teenager.
Since 2006 Redline has been bringing elite level training to athletes of all ability levels and helped countless athletes achieve their goals of playing at the high school, college, and professional ranks.
Starting with the 2022-2023 school year Redline will be bringing the same passion and expertise academically to 8th grade student-athletes to get them prepared for their freshmen year. Our goal is to provide the attention to detail and quality education that the public-school system has lacked. Our students will learn the standard subjects to prepare them for high school, but also essential life skills that they can take with them for the rest of their lives such as leadership, self-defense, finances, and entrepreneurship.
Redline Academy Students will enter their chosen high school with confidence knowing they’re ready to excel both on the field and in the class room and above all, be leaders amongst their peers.
