The oldest and first non-profit in Philadelphia is looking for individuals that have a passion to make a difference in the lives of children through sports! We offer baseball, softball, basketball and football at a low or no cost to low-income children - girls and boys - ages 7 to 15 in Philadelphia, mainly in the Kensington community. This Spring (2021) we will offer an outdoor recreational program through summer camps, clinics, and in house play at our 15 acre sports complex located across the street from St. Christopher’s Hospital. Covid protocols will be administered.
Volunteers will need to have volunteer child abuse and criminal background clearances which are free. What a wonderful way to impact children that want to learn, compete and grow through sports.
