We feel privileged to supported these amazing organizations and help them grow and flourish.

Erin Peterson was one the tragic victims of the Va. Tech shootings, and also of my first clients I ever had in this business. I began working with Erin in 2003 when she was a freshman at Westfield High School. Our workouts were held at an outdoor court and in the beginning, Erin was not a very talented post player. But with her dedicated work ethic, positive attitude, and the strong influence of her family she developed into one of the top post players in the area. The impact that she left on the Northern Va. basketball community is immeasurable due to her positive attitude and friendly demeanor. She was always a team leader and a positive influence on all of her teammates with her constant encouragement and upbeat way of life.
Erin’s spirit lives on today in all of our hearts and through the Erin Peterson Fund. Each year two scholarships are given; the Erin Peterson Leadership Award and the Erin Peterson Commit to Excel Award. The Erin Peterson Fund is 100% donor dependent, the goal is to endow the fund in order to guarantee that Erin’s legacy lives on. If you are interested in donating or would like to find out more about the fund, please visit www.erinpetersonfund.org
