Mission Statement

The mission of Kids In Sports is to create community-led afterschool sports programs for youth in underserved areas of Los Angeles County.

Description

Kids In Sports (KIS) provides adult-supervised, instructional sports programs for thousands of low-income youth, ages 5-17, in some of Los Angelesâ poorest neighborhoods. KIS works with parents, teachers and neighborhood leaders to create KIS sports clubs at existing facilities at public parks, schools and housing developments throughout Los Angeles County. More than 150 parents volunteer on local sports club advisory boards, which manage the clubs, plan and implement baseball, soccer, basketball, volleyball and other programs throughout the year. More than 600 parents and school volunteers serve as coaches, mentors and â boosters,â spending the critical after-school, weekend and summer hours providing learning and leadership to neighborhood youth.
