Unifying tribal youth and communities through structured athletic programs while providing necessary resources and developing a strong foundation in culture, leadership and wellness.
Established in 2002, the Inter Tribal Sports mission is to unify tribal youth and communities through structured athletic programs while providing necessary resources and developing a strong foundation in culture, leadership and wellness.
The organization features year-round sports and enrichment programs designed specifically for southern California Native American communities. Featured sports include basketball, softball, volleyball, soft lacrosse, and soccer. In addition to sports leagues, ITS offers wellness programming, cultural gatherings, educational outings and leadership training. ITS provides athletic opportunities and values education in conjunction with cultural, physical, mental, and spiritual development.
ITS furnishes youth and communities with occasions to build self esteem, respect, acceptance, and sportsmanship through fun and positive activities, while developing athletic skill and forming friendships, guided by appropriate role models in a sound, structured program that is non-profit, volunteer-oriented, and open to all tribal youth.
