WHAT WE DO

Rainier Athletes engages the student’s core community of parents, teachers, and coaches- together we holistically support and motivate students to achieve their greatest potential. Once the student is selected, after undergoing our application and selection process, each student is paired with a mentor and Rainier Athletes commits to sponsoring all of the students sports related costs. In Return, each student commits to achieving individualized daily goals in the classroom in the form of "Rainier Athletes Points."

Selected students earn daily "Rainier Athletes Points" in the classroom through the fulfillment of specific academic objectives and participation expectations, supported by parent-teacher communication.Through the point system, participating students “earn” their opportunity to play sports, enabling self-awareness to reinforce positive behaviors and improve on development areas in school, at home, and on the field.

The Rainier Athletes mentors coach that failure is never permanent and that each mistake should be recognized as an opportunity to learn and grow. We focus on developing in our students a “growth mindset” while promoting the courage to dismantle any "fixed mindsets” that limit the student from achieving their true potential.


THE RAINIER ATHLETES MODEL

  Rainier Athletes mentors communicate daily with their Rainier Athletes mentee’s teachers, principals, counselors, parents, and coaches in order to align these core supporters and ultimately enhance the social, emotional, and academic wellbeing of their mentee. Mentors meet with their mentee in the classroom at least twice per week to support students with their academic development opportunities, such as missing work, homework, test preparation, etc.    After debriefing with the student each week, the mentor develops a  Rainier Athletes Status Report  that is shared with the student’s core pillars - coaches, teachers, and parents –allowing everyone, including the student, to be aligned towards the student’s success.
