About

Our Passion

Find Adventure Sport was created out of a passion for running and navigation, and a respect for what we learn about ourselves and the world when we explore outdoors. Sharing these passions with children while also building life skills was the foundation for what we developed into a programmatic approach for individuals, sports teams, and schools.

Our Belief

What does FAS believe in? We believe that the environment is a mirror to ourselves; the stronger we can connect to the natural environment, the more in-tune we will be with ourselves and those around us. Our programs provide a space for participants to get out into nature, develop a sense of confidence being in the natural world through the activities, yielding an overall stronger connection between self and the surroundings.

PRINCIPLE

Getting to the understanding or essence of a thing so that it can be seen and transferred to any other area application/life. For example the principle of rhythm is to find a perpetual balance in motion; in music this could be staying on the beat, in the running it means to bring breathing arms and legs into connected motion.

SKILL

The steps or actions required to complete a task, such as taking a compass bearing to travel from one location to another.

APPLICATION

The ability to connect the principle and the skill in the given moment to meet the current situation.
