The Learning Foundation and Performing Arts School is an up-and-coming program in the Canyon Athletic Association. Coach Derek Freeman did a fantastic job in leading his team to the CAA Divison-2 State Championship last season. It is not a surprise as Athletic Director Jay Gonzales has a great track record in building powerhouse athletic programs.
Both Coach Freeman and Gonzales were instrumental in building the small school powerhouse San Tan Charter. LFPA is setting a foundation for success, as they look to build and grow their program to a powerhouse at the Regional and National levels. Coach Freeman and Gonzales keep their program competing in the off-season by hosting The Wolves Classic. The field has (13) teams competing in (4) games over a three-day period.
This event serves to provide opportunities for student-athletes to compete, develop and gain valuable exposure. This event will be well attended by regional and national scouts.
Teams in the event include: LFPA, AZ Compass Prep, PHH Prep, Cicero Prep, Benjamin Franklin, Eduprize, Payson, Northland Prep Academy, Gilbert Christian, Leading Edge Academy, Sequoia Charter, Page, and Miami.
Arizona Preps is pleased to bring coverage from this first class event.
