Making The Pros Possible

When several of my former classmates and I toured the Brainerd High School facilities back in 2021, we were reminded of what a special place it truly is. We discussed for a couple of months ways to give back and finally landed on the Game Winning Drive golf tournament. We wanted to really emphasize having a premium and extremely fun event while raising a meaningful amount of money for the youth athletic programs that were foundational to our development. The support we were shown last year was truly unbelievable, and we can’t wait to do things bigger and better this year and for years to come.

Thank you.

Money To Build The Warrior Way

“Better your best” is the Warrior Way, and on July 12th, 2024, at the 3rd Annual Game Winning Drive, we will do exactly that. The event is coming off of back-to-back sold-out events that have collectively contributed nearly $40,000 to the Brainerd Warrior Football program!  And this year, the funds are as needed as ever to help the Brainerd Warriors adopt new programs and add facilities that are focused on engaging and inspiring a passion for the strength, performance, and hard work in a new generation of athletes. By simply registering and showing up for an exceptional day of golf you will be playing an indispensable role in shaping young football players. Sign your team up today, and we will see you on the course!
