Briefing, It’s About You!

Image
    Angela Bailey is a two-time Olympian, Canadian Outdoor 100m (10.98), 200m (23.32) Indoor record holder and Olympic Silver medalist. Angela was the Co-founder of Yokefellows Athletics, before her passing (July 31, 2021) she enjoyed sharing her knowledge and experience with youth motivating them to be the best athlete they can. It is my purpose as her brother to see this venture and mission through as a legacy in her name. Yokefellows Athletics is Christian Spirited, that searches global communities for naturally gifted youth sprinters, giving them the opportunity to be seen by interested global parties. We aim to take away as many obstacles as possible for youth to reach their pinnacle best because, we understand as Olympian and developed sprint coaches ourselves; that the challenges are many and that true speed also, exist outside of tracks clubs or organized sports.   Speed is one of those sports disciplines that lends it self to many other sports... from soccer, football, hock

Yokefellow our Foundation

                                                              Yokefellows Athletics is built on a solid rock, the rock of Jesus Christ. We follow the set principles of Sabbath (Saturday as our day of rest)  If it was not for God and the sacrifice of Jesus,  Yokefellows Athletics would not exist. It would be impossible for me to do this business or open the doors that I'm about to open if I didn't give back to God through recognition and sacrifice of His command.  The word Yokefellows comes from one of the greatest sacrifices of biblical history, through Paul's journey to Rome and his imprisonment, he gives great honor to those yokefellows (Philippians 4:3) that lifted him up and made the Yoke of bondage that was on his life lighter.   This is the essence of what a Yokefellow is and the mission of Yokefellows Athletics is about. When capital revenue is not the driving force in ones life and people or companies have a greater purpose to help others in their time of n

Runners, Cleats and Spikes

It is our intention at Yokefellows Athletics to meet the needs of those that come in contact with us, even outside of our main purpose of creating God blessed, positive and lucrative channels in athletics so, youths can become responsible elite athletes.  For years now I've been driven by my "WHY" a statement that goes like this "to be a supportive resource for charities and missions around the world".  During my last trip to Jamaica I had the opportunity to live my "WHY" and it felt awesome!!! I had an idea that came to me the summer of 2021,  as I was doing one of our Yokefellows Athletelics community outreach youth time sessions. I would ask parents to donate usable footwear to give back to those youth in  Jamaica in need. I called the footwear donation "Runners, Cleats and Spikes, charity drive"     It was nice to see how many parents were open to provide me with usable youth footwear but, it was heart breaking to see the amou

    A country can be considered like a team when united; a successful country knows how to rally most of its citizens to pull in the same direction just like a football or basketball team. They foresee things in the presence with an eye for future progress. It is said countries that have the highest number of patients have a good grasp on their future and its citizens wealth.

It’s an investment with a yield of 3, 10, 25, 50 or even 100 years with the understanding at the end of the journey of either training, building or research its future will be brighter. These patents would be better off for its people, families, community, and global standing attracting

Its Now Yokefellows Athletics

    We changed our company name few years ago to Yokefellows Athletics from Accelerations and Separation. Before the passing of my sister Angela Bailey (July 31, 2021) we came to the conclusion, "if God is not in it, what is the purpose of us doing any business"? The name Yokefellow comes from the bible (Philippians 4:3) concerning St Paul identifying individuals that helped him during the challenging and tenuous times he faced as he journeyed to Rome sharing the good news of Christ.  A Yokefellow helps where ever they can, its a personality of passion, love and care for the less fortunate and the struggling. Those that are in no position to do for them self, Yokefellow  has that Christ like fruits of the spirit within them.  There are 12 fruits of the spirit “ charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity. ”   We decide to demonstrate a Yokefellow kind of character and energy into an ident
