Our Student-Athletes Benefit in Many Ways from Our Program:

  • Development: Positive experiences play an important role in a young person’s life. Team sports help teach student-athletes accountability, dedication, leadership and other skills.

  • Education:  Sports require memorization, repetition and learning — skill sets that are directly relevant to class work. Also, the determination and goal-setting skills a sport requires can be transferred to the classroom.

  • Boost Self Esteem:   Watching  hard work pay off and achieving  goals develops self-confidence. Achieving a sport or fitness goal encourages youth to achieve other goals  set. This is a rewarding and exciting learning process. 

 

  • Problem solving skills and teamwork:  Fighting for a common goal with a group of players and coaches teaches student athletes how to build teamwork and effectively communicate to solve problems. This experience is helpful when encountering problems at school or at home.

  •   Health and Wellness:  Sports  help youth reach their fitness goals and  encourage healthy decision-making such as not smoking and not drinking. Sports also have hidden health benefits such as lowering the chance of osteoporosis or breast cancer later in life.

  • Mental Wellness:  Our student athletes make new friends who can be there  as a support system. When they feel under pressure or stressed, call up a teammate, head to the field or court to talk and play it out.
