A big objective of the first annual Xtraordinary Skills Challenge is to have the opportunity to donate the proceeds of our event to an educational program that helps promote higher education.
We hope to do this through tutoring and cultivating experiences. Ultimately helping students create a desire that encourages them continue on with education.
Xavier has teamed up with College Bound Consulting and A.C.E Tutoring to create an amazing opportunity to award students a scholarship to help with furthering their education.
A portion of proceeds will also go to the Poway baseball program to help provide on and off the field necessities as the Titans strive for Championship success.
Xavier Scruggs is a professional free agent who previously played in Major League Baseball for the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins, and the NC Dinos of the KBO League.
WHY I AM DOING THIS?
My whole reasoning for doing this challenge/camp is because I want to give back to San Diego community that raised me. I group up in Poway play multiple sports in the community and went to Poway High school. I feel a sense of obligation to bring positivity back. I want to give back in a unique and fresh way. I wanted to provide the county something that allows education and sports to collide. Proceeds will go back to Local college prep programs and tutoring. Specifically A.C.E tutoring and College Bound Consultanting. I have come up with Xtraordinary skills Challenge as a way to help SD county kids learn the fundamentals of baseball and compete at a high level, all while being evaluated by major league talent.
WHO I’M DOING THIS WITH?
Alumni Xavier Scruggs, who played for the St. Louis Cardinals, Miami Marlins, Korean League and currently in the Mexico League will be hosting his first of many Xtradordinary Skills Camps at Poway on February 1, 2020.
