Established in the spring of 2008, Frank D Murphy Program, a non-profit organization, provides various services, educational programs, and community outreach programs that inspire and empower young men and women to achieve their full potential as leaders.
The primary objective of the Frank D Murphy Program is to prepare, encourage and guide those athletes who aspire to be leaders in all aspects of life. Through this curriculum, we endeavor to meet the needs of the whole person – mind and body.
Our desire is to be an extension of the authentic individual and guide them in the \direction of hard work, dedication, sound decision making, life skills and effective life management. We are preparing these athletes to meet all challenges of life that they will face as a high school, college or professional player whether it is in the locker room, in the community, or in everyday life.
This curriculum is a roadmap to becoming a successful leader as an athlete—in sports,
community, and life. Step up, step out, and step forward. It’s your time!
