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.
