Purpose

 

1World Sports is a global, nonprofit organization dedicated to creating fuller, richer lives for children through the promotion and encouragement of the values that can be learned from sport. Our focus is to primarily impact at-risk children ages 6-14 years old. Through sports, 1World Sports helps educate and motivate young people around the world to embrace critical values such as fitness, nutrition, teamwork and the importance of education (what we call the ‘Responsibilities of an Athlete'), all while enjoying the pure joy of the game.

1World Sports — "Making People Better Players and Players Better People"

WE HAVE THREE CORE PRINCIPLES TO SUPPORT OUR MISSION

  1. Joy of the Game. Sports should be fun for kids of all ages and skill levels. 1World Sports is committed to inspiring kids everywhere to love sports and enjoy life’s journey as ‘athletes for life.’
  2. Responsibilities of an Athlete. Being a great athlete starts with taking responsibility for self improvement on and off the field of play. 1World Sports actively promotes ‘Responsibilities of an Athlete’ to teach life lessons that will help the kids not only in sports, but also throughout school, and more importantly life.
  3. Environment to Succeed. In many parts of the world, it is impossible to experience the joy of the game because there is no game or no equipment to play properly. 1World Sports strives to foster the right environment so children can enjoy and grow from sports.
