AMERICA'S STRONGEST TEEN - Strongman Corporation's Teen Nationals
The Driven Athlete Foundation partnered with Strongman Corporation, the largest strongman organization in the world, to serve and empower teen athletes by hosting the first America's Strongest Teen competition in 2022.
With the original goal being to grow this competition to over 50 participants we had an awesome launch with 14 athletes coming out from 9 states across the country to be apart of this inaugural event.
Already in 2023 the awareness has grown about America's Strongest Teen and many teens from across the country have already committed to competing in a local competition or completing the online qualifier in order to earn their invitation to this prestigious competition. We've also started to communicate with several athletes from other parts of the globe that's looking to join us in July from Canada, Mexico and Australia just to name a few.
Funds raised by The Driven Athlete Foundation will be used to offer all teen athletes that qualify for AST2023 free registration into the competition. We'll also be supporting families that are facing economic hardship with the TDAF Family Sponsorship. The Driven Athlete Foundation will be providing funds for transportation, lodging, registration and food for the weekend while at America's Strongest Teen 2023 for the teen athlete and parent/guardian.
America's Strongest Teen 2023 will be held Saturday July 22, 2023 at beautiful Alameda Point on the island of Alameda, CA.

We have such an amazing time supporting athletes from across the region, state and country that come to compete with us at every level from youth athletes to masters division athletes.
We've hosted over 20+ competitions over the last 7 years throughout various cities and markets in Northern California and we're closing in on almost having over 1000 registrants at our various competitions over the years.
We are very happy to continue growing the sport of Strongman & Strongwoman and serving in all capacities we can.
You're always invited to come compete and or train with us.
THE STRONGMAN CLUB COMMUNITY
The Strongman Club is an inclusive strength community with multiple chapters throughout Northern California that stands on the belief that strength has no boundaries.
TSC was formed during the 2020 pandemic to support our community after having to close down gyms and cancel scheduled competitions during the lockdown. It was during this time that many community members realized and expressed how instrumental our trainings and competitions were in supporting mental, emotional and social health needs, along with their physical training and development.
It started with one community member taking up a car push challenge in a empty university parking lot to get some resistance exercise during Covid and turned into a weekly meet up for people all over the state of California to join a safe and inclusive space that was focused on Building Strength & Building Community.
Since then we've moved from one parking lot to now partnering with local gyms that pushed through the pandemic to keep their business open and rented out space to support the growing community of strongman and strongwoman athletes and aspiring trainees. Throughout 2021 we've grown the club to 3 locations throughout Northern California in Hayward, Sacramento and Concord. We'll be launching the 4th location in the South San Francisco/Daly City area in January 2022 and we have plans to expand further north beyond Sacramento to support the growing strength community there.
We have a monthly membership that community members contribute to in order to support the expenses of our supportive and growing operation for rent, coaches, equipment, repairs etc. Funds from The Driven Athlete Foundation will go towards making sure that the youth, teens and any member that may be facing economically challenging times can continue to gain value out of training with this community without the strain of finances as a hinderance.
