Amateur Sports

Bill Daniels’ Motivation

Bill loved sports and knew from personal experience that participation in sports and the influence of quality coaches could change the direction of a young person's life for the better.

Desired Result

Youth experience the benefits of participating in sports programs. Elite amateur athletes have the opportunity to participate in national and international competitions.

Our Strategy

  • Youth Sports
    Youth have access to affordable, community-based sports led by coaches trained to build a positive culture that promotes teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, and confidence.

  • Competition
    National and international amateur sports competitions take place in the community. The costs of participation in national or international competitions — such as training and travel expenses — are offset for elite amateur athletes.

“If you didn't mow the lawn, you didn't get your allowance. You told a lie and got grounded for a week. If you weren't a team player, you sat on the bench.

It's called discipline.

And it's not only a part of growing up. It's an important part of your entire life.”
