WHO WE ARE
A platform for youth and adults in underserved communities. A few local public schools lost their sports programs and gave little to no hope for kids to stay physically active and for these youth to have an interest in playing an organized sport. Our aim is to provide a platform for low to moderate income families (youth and adults) to participate in sports and to be physically active. We offer information, training, practice, camps, after school programs, leagues, and tournaments. Not only will we provide this platform to low to moderate income families (youth and adults) in the Bay area, but our goal is to expand to all regions throughout the United States to help underprivileged kids.
Youth sports participation rates have been in a steady decline across the nation over the past decade. Budget cuts to athletic departments and physical education programs in schools throughout the country are increasing as well. As a result, more and more kids are don't have the accessibility to participate in physical activity in their own communities. We are here to provide that opportunity for youth in underprivileged communities to be physical active and participate in sports.
According to sport and physical health studies*:
Only six U.S. States currently require physical education in every grade level from K-12
48% of high schools in the U.S. do not have any type of physical education program
28% of kids aged 6-12 and 19% of kids aged 13-17 were not involved in any sort of consistent physical activity in 2012
Because of this, childhood obesity rates have been increasing rapidly. Per the Centers for Disease Control, childhood obesity rates have more than doubled in children and more than quadrupled in adolescents over the past 30 years, leaving more than one-third of the nations youth overweight or obese.
