Two Groups Align in Efforts to Increase Academic Services and Mentoring for Student-Athletes
Trinity Financial, Sports & Entertainment Management Company, a division of Peter Grandich and Company, announced today that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Sportika, a state-of-the-art sports complex located in Manalapan, N.J., that also has an additional venue in Freehold, N.J.
“I consider our relationship with Sportika to be the single greatest undertaking in our company’s history,” said Peter Grandich, owner of Peter Grandich Company and Trinity Financial, Sports & Entertainment Management Company. “They are without any reservation, the largest and best youth sports facility in the Tri-State area. And if that’s not enough, their corporate philosophy of academics being every bit as important as sports participation will better serve parents and their desires for their children, which is unmatched anywhere else.”
The driving element of this partnership will be focused on the individual progression of the student-athlete. The two groups will be aligned in their efforts to increase academic development and to improve life skills of the student-athlete by means of personal mentoring. Sportika takes a sincere initiative in administering services to student-athletes that will develop them on both the academic and sports performance fronts, ensuring that they are prepared for college despite whether or not they choose to play athletics.
In particular, Peter Grandich and Trinity Financial will work directly with the student-athletes at Sportika, as well as their families, in providing educational services that are related to financial literacy.
“Working with Peter Grandich and Trinity Financial will play a vital role in broadening the appeal of Sportika,” said Robert Fegan, Managing Partner of Sportika. “Peter is someone who is linked directly to a diverse group of recognized professional athletes. Also, he personally has an international reputation as being one of the foremost financial experts. His network in the sports community, combined with his vast experience in matters of finance, will indeed enhance the services and culture at Sportika.”
Sportika was conceived as a full encompassing sports complex solution to satisfy the demand of both elite and recreational athletes. Since opening in March, Sportika has become the “Mecca” of indoor sports facilities on the East Coast, and it is emerging as a leader and model for youth development and sports performance training programs.
“Sportika’s mission is to provide a comprehensive ‘humanistic’ approach to developing young athletes,” said Jeffrey L. Jordan, Sportika CEO. “Sportika is committed to developing not only the physical skill of each young athlete, but also their intellect, emotion, instinct and intuition. We have an opportunity to change the industry when it comes to youth sports.”
Sportika is a 170,000 square-feet venue that boasts a full-sided indoor soccer field and seven basketball courts that can host any hardwood sport. Their state-of-the-art facility is also home to an academic center, a sports performance and physical therapy center, Youth Mentoring Academy, corporate meeting rooms and event spaces.
“Very few people make it to professional sports,” Jordan continued. “Our goal is to prepare athletes to be well rounded, socially conscious, global thinking citizens, and to not only to get them into college, but to have them thrive, whether they are playing their sport or not.”
