Our roots, who we are, and why children need this sociology today

The purpose of Phase 1 Is to weed out potential new trainers and determine which ones are willing to do the work required for the trainer position. It's also to give new trainers perspective as to the importance of the Avila brand overall so they aren't like a deer in the headlights during Phases 2 and 3. In other words, new trainers need to understand a little about our history, the meaning of Avila, the dilemma inherent in sports and business today, and even learn a little bit about how talent is developed too. Developing talent using the Avila methodology will be the focus of Phase 3. Phase 2 will more about operational procedures at Avila.

But let's get started with the basics

The task in Phase 1 is to view the seven links (below) to Avila-related articles, interviews, and videos and submit answers to essay questions. Please note that a potential trainer cannot begin working at Avila until they have finished Phase 1 and 2. Send essays to Eryck Avila directly at This email address is being protected from spambots.
