The LiFEsports initiative has been using sport “to prepare youth for life and leadership” since 2009. More than 8,000 deserving young people in our community have directly participated in our summer camp and clinic programming. LiFEsports recognizes that youth sports are about much more than playing ball – it’s about giving young people skills they can use both on and off the field. That’s why LiFEsports uses athletics to teach youth valuable life skills. Our activities focus on four critical social skills that will help them grow and mature: Self-control, Effort, Teamwork and Social Responsibility, or S.E.T.S.
Each summer, LiFEsports serves more than 700 campers. Campers are engaged year-round through clinics that allow LiFEsports to maintain caring, positive relationships with our youth and provide additional educational opportunities on targeted social skills.
The LiFEsports Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) is dedicated to preparing high school youth for college and careers through leadership and life skills. Youth participate in bi-monthly education and mentoring sessions throughout the academic year and then serve as junior camp counselors during the summer camp program.
In addition to serving youth in the community, LiFEsports works year-round to provide teaching and learning opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students in the field of sport-based positive youth development (PYD). Our goal is to prepare tomorrow's leaders for the field of sports-based PYD and beyond. PASS IT ON!
LiFEsports works year-round to provide programming for youth, conducts research to discover best practices and invests in the teaching and learning of future youth development professionals. These programs wouldn't be possible without the philanthropic support of donors. We need your help to make the pass, take the shot, score the goal and win the game!
Will you join us in passing it on? Your gift today will help LiFEsports continue to impact our community, one child at a time.
