Welcome to the ETA Family.
The ETA facility was introduced to Snohomish County in 2014 after owner, Michael Bumpus, recognized the need for an effective athletic training facility in the area. Mr. Bumpus desired a space that prepared and recognized the talent in Snohomish County and the PNW area. The ETA space has hosted thousands of athletes since its inception in 2014.
ETA believes that with our influence, it is also our responsibility to build the leaders of the future and athletics is our medium. Fueled by a philosophy rooted in humility, unmatched work ethic, and commitment to excellence, the ETA family has grown every year. Our most successful program is the ETA 7v7 Football Program- what started out as 7 athletes who trained at ETA has grown from one, 7-man team, to 8 fully rostered teams ranging from elementary to high school.
ETA has become a premier indoor athletic training facility. ETA Trainers and Coaches strive to bring clients the best, most diverse, comprehensive and thorough training in the PNW.
