The club ownership model creates an environment where kids are stakeholders in the success of the club and themselves. We teach the kids to take responsibility for the facility, equipment, and themselves as representatives of wreSTL. Kids are required to complete a minimal level of “chores” such as mopping the mats, cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming, taking out trash, etc. in addition, kids are invited to participate in the promotion of the club and are tasked with being positive role models in the community as they represent the sport and our club. We want everyone, from kids to parents to staff, to take ownership of our club and treat it as if it were their own and they had a stake and it’s success.
