Congratulations go out to student-athlete Niaja Nolan, the first client of Antioch’s All Sports Training Center to receive a full-ride, college athletic scholarship. A resident of Pittsburg, Niaja is a junior at Carondelet High School in Concord, where she has maintained a 3.8 grade point average throughout high school.

Since the age of 12, Niaja developed a passion for softball. As she matured, so did her talent and her love for the sport grew. She played so well that the coaches recognized her potential to be great and made her a starter. However, Niaja lacked speed and agility.

Her mother Jessi Nolan, who is her number one fan and greatest supporter, took action to find her help. They hired Will Stalling, founder of All Sports Training Center in Antioch. With the help of Stalling’s personal training, Niaja has been able to maximize her speed, strength, agility and explosion, in a short time.

Since training at All Sports, she was offered a scholarship from Howard University, and committed to the college, this year. It will help Niaja fulfill her dreams of majoring and working in the medical field.

People have told me I did not have what it takes to be fast,” Niaja said. “Now my coaches tell me to steal bases at will. Thanks to my trainer in the matter of three-and-a-half months, with hard work, I am a complete athlete.”

Like I have always said, ‘hard work beats talent, when talent is hardly working,’” she added. “Special thanks to my mentor and trainer at All Sports Training Center, loving mother and supporting family members.”

We would like to congratulate you on your hard work and we wish you well in your future endeavors at Howard University,” Stalling told Niaja.

All Sports is located at 2640 Somersville Road on the outside of the Somersville Towne Center. Contact them at (925) 775-4178 or visit them online at
