Austin Youth Fitness Athlete of the Month is a showcase of the talented young men and women in our community. The power and spirit of our youth is limitless, and AYF thinks it's important to let other young athletes know what their peers are doing in the fitness community. Congratulations to the following AYF Athletes of the Month!
Samuel Seif is in the 1st grade and participates in both AYF's Running Group @ Casis and Beginner Biking Group. Samuel was nominated by his coaches because he always has that smile on his face, he works really hard, and is a good, encouraging friend to others. Samuel regularly rides to school with his dad on a ride-behind bike, as well as rides to Westlake to visit friends. Sometimes those rides will be over 15 miles! Aside from AYF, Samuel is part of the Casis Chess Club, he's participated in Lego summer camps, he plays flag football and basketball at WAYA (also plays basketball at the YMCA), and played i9 summer flag football.
Samuel is not sure what he wants to be when he grows up, but he wants to work on computers like his mommy and daddy. He also says, "Being a football player would be nice too!"
Samuel's favorite thing about AYF is, "That I learned to bike on my own bike and now I don't need training wheels. I can now bike with my mom to Mozart's. And Coach Alli is very nice and fun."
Congratulations to Samuel for being AYF's January Athlete of the Month!
