Ball Is Life+Skills
Youth Sports Leagues
Ball Is Life+Skills is a series of youth recreational sports leagues geared towards engaging and motivating high school students to be more physically active, socially involved, culturally aware and less dependent on electronic devices for entertainment. Ball Is Life+Skills programs service teens and late adolescents from the inner city with organized competitive sports play for 6-10 weeks at no cost to the participants. In addition to the weekly games and indirect group mentoring, all of our recreational programs are fitted with mandatory mentor lead R.E.A.C.H. workshops that focus on challenges and issues afflicting our inner city youth while providing them with the tools and resources to navigate them. Some workshop topics include crime prevention and intervention; substance abuse and recovery; conflict mediation and resolution; post secondary education and employment; teenage pregnancy and parenthood; along with various other degrees of applicable mental, physical, and social development.
