Each year, kids in every community sign up for local sports leagues that offer valuable life lessons as well as important health benefits. Unfortunately, most of these leagues are under-funded and have to rely on donations. When donations don’t come through, parents who can afford to will pitch in. But for kids whose families can’t contribute, it’s game over and they don’t get to play.
Mission: Sports Care is our way of helping the local youth sports leagues in your community. By partnering with us, you can make all the difference to local kids who love sports, simply by scheduling a Mission: Sports Care charity workshop.
Youth Sports Leagues are Important for Everyone, Including You and Magnovo!
Everyone knows it’s good for kids to get outside and play sports. With the childhood obesity epidemic growing every year, they need all the opportunities they can get for being active.
But the benefits to kids who play in youth sports leagues go well beyond the physical. Equally important are the social lessons they learn and the personal traits they strengthen when they play on a team.
Going beyond those immediate benefits, youth sports are an integral part of family structures and communities as well. Did you know that 21.5 million kids in the U.S. between the ages of 6 and 17 play team sports?
Not only that, but youth sports are a major topic of conversation in families where kids play on teams. Over two-thirds of parents say they talk to their kids at least every other day about their games and practices! It’s clearly a bonding element in modern families.
Youth Sports Teaches Kids About Teamwork. Perfect!
And yes- youth sports are all about teamwork! It’s one of the reasons we’re so excited about this workshop- it’s another chance to put our money where our mouth is and support community team building with clients like you.
How does it work? Your team gathers for their workshop at the pre-arranged time and place- we do the rest. After some ice breakers to focus everyone on the task at hand, we dive into some team building activities that will eventually lead to groups putting together the donations they’ll be sending out to local groups.
And what will the donated items be? Sports equipment for young children. We arrange for the equipment to go to local kids through the community groups who run their sports leagues. They do great work for our little team members- you can help support their efforts – and build your own team skills while you’re at it!
If you’d like to support youth sports leagues in your community, we’re just a phone call or a form submission away- contact us to schedule your Mission: Sports Care workshop today.
