Why We’re Here?
To Help Our Youth Stay In The Game
Economic Status Means Many Kids Can’t Play
The fact is, there are very talented athletic young people who will never have an opportunity to showcase their talent and carve out a brighter future for themselves, because they simply can’t afford to participate in a sport
Sporting Experiences Improve Cognitive Skills
Research shows that access to high quality sports helps children develop and improve cognitive skills that they can leverage academically, as well as when they enter the workplace later in life.
Boosting Confidence & Addressing Mental Wellness
Playing sports help youth learn how to communicate and coordinate with others, cope with failure, rejection, and even successes. It also promotes self-esteem, goal setting, and leadership skills.
