How does the program work?

A Precious Child collects donated new and gently-used sports equipment and distributes them to children in the most need in the community through our Resource Center as well as our Agency Partners.

Children are able to submit a scholarship application for any sport of their choosing to help cover the cost of registration, tournament fees, camp fees, uniform fees, needed equipment as well as other sports related fees. These scholarships give children in need the opportunity to participate in sports alongside their peers despite the hardships they are facing.

Why we do what we do

giveSPORTS aims to put children into the game and not be sidelined by their circumstance. Extracurricular activities are expensive and become an unattainable dream for children in need due to the already stretched budgets of their families.

With funding being cut for youth sports and physical education being taken out of schools, as well as the expense to participate in organized sports, the giveSPORTS program is a bridge to help a child stay active and put them on the path to a higher GPA and a higher attendance rate.

Participation in extracurricular sports significantly impacts short and long-term educational, emotional, behavioral, and physical outcomes for disadvantaged, poverty stricken youth (International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (2013).

Children who have the opportunity to play sports learn many life lessons such as team work, leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility, ethics, time management, how to strive to win and how to deal with losing, which all translate into the classroom and one day into their careers.
