Athlete of Courage

Meet Cyd

Meet Cyd

Cyd has been a member of Courage League Sports since the beginning. When he first started participating with us his Grandmother was looking for a place for Cyd to workout. He was the inspiration for the creation of our Ninja Power Kickboxing class., Cyd enjoyed coming to Ninja Power but would struggle when it came time to join a larger group of peers in the gym. Each visit, our staff would encourage Cyd to try something new, stay a few minutes longer, or introduce him to a new peer in order to more easily transition him to gym programs. Slowly Cyd grew more comfortable with being in the gym and playing with his peers....
