Your Moment is Now Training

W/Coach Michael Stephens

We Build Well-Rounded Athletes and Students who are Literate and Can Read Between the Lines.  English/Language Arts Tutoring for AP Exams and STAAR Testing is Available as well.

Your Moment is Now Training is more than just a training experience.  YMNT stands for what it means for your student athlete to learn to compete at the highest level in whatever sport they choose.  YMNT believes that in order to compete at a high level in any athletic competition, an athlete must have the core abilities that we are here to teach and help your kids grow past and achieve anything they are willing to work hard for.

YMNT also would like to help students in terms of essay writing, standardized ELA testing and AP testing to help ensure that there is more than just an athletic door open for your student athlete to walk through for an opportunity for success.

Our Training Philosophy:

  1. Time will not be wasted

  2. I will account for second of your student/athlete’s hour long training session.

  3. Everything will be organized and for a purpose

  4. No Drill/Assignment will be done just to have a filler

The biggest enjoyment I get from training students/athletes is being able to learn their athletic goals and designing athlete-specific ways to get them to their destination.  

There is nothing better than seeing the moment when a student/athlete grasps a concept and converts it to the academic/athletic arena.  

Also, building trust with the student/athlete and the parent is enjoyable as well.  Being able to build a rapport with the clients to the point where we are working together to ensure greatness and accomplishment is second to none.

    Michael was very informative on our initial call. Michael worked with my son Brenda and taught him more about stance and body position in 1 hour than he's learned in several years playing for school. I can't wait to see how much Brendan improves over the summer! Excellent instructor. Highly engaged!

    Coach is very knowledgeable and professional but most of all very caring. He was able to connect with my son on their first meeting which was very important to me. We have seen improvements ever since the first day and continue to see them as the weeks go by. We are very thankful for everything he has been able to teach our son. Will recommend him to everyone.

  • James Robert
