About PPA

Premier Performance Athletics (PPA) is a 501c3 youth development organization established to support Houston area youth to develop healthier lifestyles through recreational activities and academic enrichment activities. Through academic enrichment, PPA supports youth in developing a strong fundamental foundation with opportunities to exercise their leadership potential.

We are an all-volunteer organization that proudly services athletes (ages 6 – 18) who compete in the Youth Division of USA Track and Field. Our objective is to provide opportunities for healthy, supervised athletic training that emphasizes teamwork, goal setting, discipline, sportsmanship, leadership, nutrition, and other valuable life-skills as an important alternative to inappropriate social behaviors. It is also our desire for each athlete to establish a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

PPA believes that achievement is not the result of mere athletic ability. Rather, we believe that true success is measured by the character of our participants in their pursuit of athletic and academic excellence.


Our mission is to inspire youth in Houston and its surrounding areas to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based outreach program that creatively integrates running and promotes academic excellence.


We envision a society where youth know and are empowered to live up to their limitless potential and are free to boldly pursue their dreams.
