DVD/Christmas Update

I hope everyone is doing well and has received their rewards.  We have sent out over 1,800 dvds, hundreds of t-shirts and posters, and everything else (save the blu-rays which are coming soon).  Everyone who ordered a blu ray has been sent a dvd and will be sent a blu-ray as well.  Emails have been sent to those who did not provide an address so please check your email.  If you didn't get one then please send us a message online a nd let us know. International dvd's should be arriving soon if they have not already.

I wanted to ask everyone for a favor. As you know, we have done this campaign the non-traditional way, through hard work, technology, and the massive help of others like yourself. We are at a point where we are finally able to get dvd's out to people around the country.  We would ask that you take a moment and share it with others. The response we have gotten on the film continues to be incredible.  I could share many emails with you... it is extremely gratifying to receive an email stating that an entire youth team watched the film and said they all want to train harder and never give up.

We have set up a very easy way to share the film. There are only a few days left for people to get it before Christmas.  It is a great gift/stocking stuffer for any ahtlete, fan, coach, or person with a dream (which by my count is pretty much everyone)  Please visit the link below and simply click "share."  Thank you! Rise & Shine

      hey guys
      got an email on 12/14 that all the dvds were mailed, but I still haven't received mine... I know things are busy with the holidays so delivery could be slowed but want to make sure mine was actually send... please look into it.
