Algonquin Sports for Kids

Empowering Youth. Building Community.

A fundraising campaign for Algonquin Sports For Kids

Sports and mentorship play an integral role in the development of our children. The families and communities where Algonquin Sports for Kids works might be underserved in many ways, but they are mighty, they are strong, and they are fighting for change. By learning valuable lessons on the field and with the guidance of our trained coaching staff, the children coming through our program are learning the skills to be agents of change. 

At Algonquin Sports for Kids, it is our mission and our drive to continuously help our players understand their strengths, to reduce the barriers they have for success, and to instill in them a pride in their community and their future. Sports are the vehicle to develop the skills needed, but the future is theirs to mold.

About the Organization

Algonquin Sports For Kids

Algonquin Sports for Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a dedicated approach to the development of youth sports programs in the City of Buffalo.
The staff and volunteers who make all of Algonquin Sports for Kids' programs and activities possible truly believe that sports-based youth development programs in after-school environments and in the communities where our players live have the power to keep children safe, inspire success among youth, and the motivation to be change leaders. The investment of time and resources into community-based programs like ours are powerful weapons in the fight against juvenile delinquency, childhood obesity, and our country's persistently high school drop-out crisis.

Algonquin Sports for Kids is particularly focused on the coach-mentor model of coaching and training. We train our coaches to develop relationship with players and their teams, focusing on having a fun-loving, sportsman-like attitude about their sport.
