Thank You for 10 Years

10 years ago as we transitioned TFP to a facility there was a lot of excitement. We had the help in so many ways from TFPers. TFP was truly build by TFP! So fitting, as that is our belief, that staff and athletes all work together to create some special.

Over the years many have been with us from day 1 and many came soon after. Thank you for entrusting in us for your goals!

As a small business, we get asked all the time to market in many forms. We know our best form of marketing is keeping you happy and working on your goals. Thank you for the many referrals!

Each year we seem to add to our facility and offerings. Our staff and athletes have given us much feedback to evolve. Thank you for your guidance!

Something that we feel really shows your trust. When our athletes bring their children in for services, we feel your trust and confidence and take it very serious. Thank you for trusting us with their development.

Now as we move forward, we have a lot of possible ideas to continue to positively affect our community but we will never forget the past. Thank you for joining us!
