“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” – Nelson Mandela

WHY SPORTS?

CREATE THE OPPORTUNITY HERE  

“There are no shortcuts to success, none. You have to start by learning the fundamentals of what you’re doing and then you work your way up. I think being a part of a team, being an individual thinker, learning how to be a leader and work together as a group to achieve a common goal.”

Kobe Bryant

“Getting into youth sports gave me confidence, that I felt good about who I was and then it gave me confidence to compete in the classroom.”

Herschel Walker

“You will enjoy your life more if you find some kind of athletic endeavor that you are good at, good enough just to play. You will also do better…In all probability, you’ll do better in school and you’ll do better in relating to other people. It will make you feel better all day, every day, if you do something right now.”

President Bill Clinton

“Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”
