Mission Statement

Coaching Corps improves the health, educational and social outcomes for kids living in struggling communities through the power of service and sports.

Description

We believe that all children, regardless of where they live, should have access to the powerful experience of learning and growing through sports. Studies prove sports make kids healthier, more confident and more successful in school, but, unfortunately, kids growing up in low-income neighborhoods are often left sitting on the sidelines. Girls growing up in these communities are even more likely to be left out of the game. Our amazing team works hard to level the playing field so that every kid has a chance to play and grow.
