WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

Are you ready to become an Athenian?

Learning, driving, and then applying newfound knowledge in a hands-on application is a life changing experience! Suddenly you can connect the dots from what you read in your textbooks. The lectures that your teachers gave in the classroom begin to resonate and what was once mere theory has practical application. 

Who knew that science, technology, engineering, and math could become fan favorites?!? Once you build a custom part for a race car, walk and test the physics of the race course and describe your experience to the media, then, yes you will intimately know the connections and experience how much fun it is! 

 

From the CLASSROOM TO THE Track

BECOMING ATHENIAN

We empower the young ladies who are the “nerds,” the “game-changers,” the “status quo demolishers”. 

Our intensive one-year scholarship program gives them hours in the classroom coupled with track time where they will learn a multitude of skills that will benefit them throughout life. 

As their knowledge and experience blossom, our students will experience competition on the home track as well as traveling to regional races.  

Their skills won’t only be tested on the track… 

Our students will also be tested in the classroom where they will learn crucial career skills in business, marketing, leadership, and public speaking. 

Athena Racing fosters wisdom, courage, strength, strategy and skill as drivers on the race course and as leaders in life.

TRACK WISE

For the track, the students will be taught classroom theory, learn advanced driving techniques, be taught defensive driving techniques and undergo meticulous instruction in safety. On the track they will have instructors in the car with them, follow instructors and eventually go solo as they autocross on their own.

In the shop, our students will wrench with the best of them. They will learn race car construction, the basics of auto hardware, systems, and mechanics. The introduction to race car preparation will prepare them for minor repairs at the tracks.

Beyond the track, the students will master the skills necessary to excel in the business world. They will undergo intensive media training, conduct on camera interviews with both local and national media outlets, and will be booked for public speaking engagements making them confident spokespersons for the Athena brand. Through the entrepreneur track, our students will train to be start up leaders. They will learn  to recognize the opportunities around them and lead business initiatives that can become new revenue streams. In the marketing track, they will assist the team with campaign planning, content, and social media marketing. Etiquette training will be ongoing so that they are at ease in any situation and present themselves as true ladies.
