  1. Since God made very few Olympians, here at E.T.T.G., every child       is allowed the dignity to be an athlete.

  2. Our goal is to make every child who walks out our door, feel better about themselves, and be a better person, as a result of their participation in our programs and classes.

  3. SAFETY–first, last and always!

  4. We break each skill down into a magical stairway of small successes to turn children into “SELF-ESTEEM MACHINES!”

  5. Our goal at E.T.T.G. is to be a role model for youth oriented sports organizations, second to none.
