Special Thanks To Our Platinum Sponsors
At Team Evolve, we provide a one-of-a kind-team environment that focuses on both individuality and teamwork, which fundamentally transforms each person both on and off the field. We train together, sweat together, compete together and win together. We practice twice per week at the Bay County Jail, rain or shine. In the 2017 season, Team Evolve completed 5 Spartan Events, earned our first Trifecta and had multiple children complete their very first Spartan Race.
Community / Media
In 2017 the Team’s very first community outreach project was so successful that it was featured on the local news. Last year, Team Evolve was featured on Channel 13 and Channel 7 News five times, and was covered by Go Magazine, The News Herald and The County Press. In 2018 Evolve With JT officially partnered with the Bay County Sheriffs Office to encourage and assist employees to participate in Team Evolve. In 2019 Coach JT Thompson and Team Evolve were featured for their Hurricane Michael relief efforts in the docu-series, The Determined Stores.
