Did you know that many community-led youth sports leagues are primarily volunteer-driven? They also rely on donations, but after that when the money runs out it’s up to the parents. And when parents can’t afford the extra expense for equipment, coaches, and fees, some kids will lose out.
Mission: Sports Care! alleviates that pressure on parents by helping out with those much-needed donations for youth sports leagues in your community. These leagues were never meant to be run as “pay-to-play” systems since that leaves so many kids shut off from the wonderful benefits of playing youth sports after school.
By supplying much-needed sports equipment to a local kids’ sports league near you, your group can give back to the community in a whole new way. This workshop is great for groups who feel that supporting the healthy development of local kids fits their mission statement.
It’s also a great charity workshop for groups who already bond over sports. Does your company have a sports-themed event already planned? Are you in the healthcare industry? Education?
Youth sports leagues support physical fitness, social development, and community team building all at once. That’s a lot of good being done on a lot of different levels!
Sports leagues for kids provide proving grounds for the kids who play on those teams.
All these factors weigh heavily later on in life when they become adults and make their way in the world. As you know, teamwork is important in almost every aspect of life, not just at work!
Plus, for groups in the healthcare industry, Mission: Sports Care is a mission-friendly workshop that lets you put real-time action behind your corporate vision. When it comes to physical fitness, the impact of playing sports is tremendous. This is so important to families and communities, especially given that childhood obesity rates have tripled since the 1970’s. About 20% of kids between the ages of 6 and 19 are obese.
Your group can help kids enjoy all these benefits of playing in youth sports leagues after school, and more. All it takes is scheduling a Mission: Sports Care charity team building workshop for your group. You get the benefits of strengthening your own team while everyone works together to give back to kids in the community. What could be a better outcome than that?
