What our customers say

At the James Jones Legacy Foundation, we take pride in providing our students with unique opportunities and challenging experiences that encourage teamwork, leadership and personal growth. The FIU ropes course provides all of that and more - and every year I'm pushing myself through right alongside the kids, just as engaged and excited as they are. It's an adventure everyone should embrace.

James Jones
Three-time NBA champion, James Jones Legacy Foundation

When planning a field trip for my students, TRAC would always be one of the most popular choices. It was incredible to witness how far my students would come within the span of just a couple of hours. Many would come in fearful at the sight of the ropes course but through the concepts taught by the amazing facilitators, they were able to work successfully as a team and encourage each other to overcome their own obstacles. It was always great to see how my students got to be challenged and motivated to try things outside their comfort zone.
