In the nationwide mission to create opportunities in sports and physical activity for kids through the donation of brand-new sports equipment, apparel and footwear, Good Sports can’t do it alone. We welcome you to join us in this mission by helping pack and count donations of brand-new sports equipment in our 37,000 square foot Field House in Braintree. Good Sports has donated over 90 million dollars in brand new sports equipment since 2003, from partners like Under Armour, Nike, Spalding and Dick's Sporting Goods with over 9 million kids impacted by our sports donations.

Our Field House is located at 1515 Washington Street, Braintree MA 02184, with ample parking space.

All volunteer opportunities require you to be able to regularly lift and/or move objects 10-30lbs as well as to stand, walk, stoop, kneel, crouch, and reach for sustained periods of time. Some volunteer opportunities will be more stationary, such as kitting gear or cutting tags.

Volunteers are also expected to review our Health and Safety Guidelines, including documenting COVID-19 vaccination doses and signing our volunteer waiver.

Mission Statement

Good Sports gives kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing new equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. Founded in 2003 with a donation of 500 basketballs, Good Sports has grown into a national organization that has donated over $72 million worth of equipment to give over 8 million kids a chance to play.

Description

Good Sports creates opportunities in sports and physical activity for kids through donations of brand-new sports gear. Our goal is to help youth serving programs: increase the total number of participants; enhance the experience for all young people involved; and create new opportunities in physical activity for the kids they serve. We exist to make sure that cost does not keep kids on the bench. The world of youth sports has split into two groups: the "haves" and the "have nots". While some families can afford gear, league fees and travel costs - many cannot. We know that kids who play do better. By supply youth organizations and schools with the gear they need, overhead costs are cut, and more resources become available, helping children stay connected to their communities.

Good Sports works with the sporting goods industry to obtain a variety of athletic gear, apparel and footwear. From our 37,000 sq ft warehouse, we are able to store the equipment, match it to the needs of approved organizations and then distribute to these organizations based all over the country.
