The concept of this program, is to give our young people an alternative outlet for year round involvement in an after school sport programs. This includes such sports as: basketball, baseball, t-ball, flag football, cheerleader’s, hockey, gymnastics, ice-skating and boxing. Engaging youth in such positive activities, as sports can be a deterrent to juvenile delinquency.
A national study of 19 recreation programs by the National Parks and Recreation Association revealed that local law enforcement in many cities credited area youth recreation programs with significant contributions to reducing the incidence of crimes committed by and against juveniles. Participation in sports and other recreational programs can build character and leadership in youth and can put youth in a positive environment during the hours when a parent is not at home. This program is an alternative means to keep our youth from the gang and drug environment in the community; while at the same time training young people to form good habits in both sports, school studies and to transfer new positive skills into real world skills as a team player.
The After School Sports Program will involve prominent coaches and athletes who will volunteer their time to help train our youth. There will be a volunteer staff doctors to monitor the children’s physical condition to ensure they are healthy enough to participate in such activities after first being examined by their own private physician and signing a disclaimer. There will also be a nutritionist to make sure that the young people are getting the proper nourishment and the correct diet in order to participate in our program. The program will also provide nourishing snacks for the children and they will be given a special diet to enhance their athletic abilities. At the same time our program also offers a solution to the Latchkey Kids problems by providing an after school alternative.
