What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The value of sports participation for children is undeniable. Playing sports can improve grades and physical fitness, enhance self-regulation and awareness, and strengthen relationships with peers and adults—many of the habits that help young people combat the long-term impact of adverse childhood experiences associated with structural racism and poverty. But in the U.S., youth sports are the least accessible to the kids who need them most: In 2018, children from low-income families were half as likely to participate in regular sports than their more affluent peers—a disparity that disproportionately affects children of color.

Coaching Corps Programs

While pay-to-play costs continue to rise, we believe that all children—regardless of ZIP code—should be able to play sports under a trained, caring coach. To do this, we developed a nationally recognized framework that enables volunteers and afterschool programs to coach kids from underserved neighborhoods through a lens of equity and empathy, free to families and afterschool programs .In line with Coaching Corps’ mission, our 3-step approach is simple:

1: RECRUIT
We recruit local community members to become volunteer sports coaches in afterschool programs.

2: TRAIN
We train volunteers and afterschool programs to coach and mentor youth to cultivate an environment where kids experience trust, belonging, autonomy, and growth

3: SUPPORT
We know coaching is hard, so we offer coaches season-long support through the Coaches Corner, where they can interact with and learn from coaches across the country
