"I have had the pleasure of participating in organized sports through the AIRO Athletics family and I was impressed with the unique staff and their high level of experience and knowledge," said Maria Bottone, Director of Human Resources, Colonial Van Lines. "Fortunately, my son is part of the program, so I have seen first-hand how AIRO Athletics develops quality athletes with strong character traits. Colonial Van Lines is proud to be a part of this."
With its sponsorship, Colonial Van Lines will help AIRO Athletics pay for special instruction by professional coaches. This is an essential part of preparing young athletes for competition at the next level because they can get insider tips on how they should conduct themselves on and off the field. These skill camps will re-instill the fundamentals, brush up on the mechanics and teach athletes how to throw and hit with more power and take better care of their bodies as well.
AIRO Athletics wants “youth athletes to train like pros, so they can play like pros.” To achieve this, the company has compiled an impressive staff or former professional athletes. They include former NFL star and Super Bowl champion Sam Madison, and talented ex-University of New Haven football player Dave Menard, who retired after successful stints in the NFL and NFL Europe.
As one of the most trusted leaders in the moving industry, Colonial Van Lines headlines thousands of moves annually for people all over the country. In hopes of expanding its business, while giving back to the community, Colonial Van Lines sponsors multiple youth organizations and is instrumental in several positive community initiatives.
