Summer Ball Drive for The Greensboro Police Department! Beyond Sports NC and the Greensboro Police department are partnering this summer to create opportunities for positive interactions between officers and youth in the community. Our goal is to distribute 5,000 balls this summer! Through donations & sponsorship, the idea is to supply each of GPD’s patrol divisions with sports balls (i.e. footballs, soccer balls, basketballs) for officers to keep in their cruisers to give out to kids and teens during their shift. Having sports balls in police cars will allow for officers to have brief, but positive interactions with youth by giving away sports balls as well as potentially an opportunity for the officer to even quickly playing catch before the officer goes to the next call. Fuel the dreams of energetic kids this summer and provide them with the life skills learned through sports! Your donations help eliminate the financial barriers of sports equipment.

School Sports – The Need: Imagine coaching a volleyball team with 20 athletes and 1 ball for practice. Imagine having to use multiple different style jerseys to make enough for your soccer team or have to cut players due to limited jerseys. How about if you were an athlete that wanted to try a new sport but didn’t have the equipment. Can you picture what recess looks like for a 5th grade class of 25 students and one flat basketball? These stories are just a few of the many struggles that Title 1 athletics and schools are facing.

Help Us Fill Recess Bags for classrooms!
Studies show that kids who are engaged in sports activities, typically stay more engaged in academics. Unfortunately, not all schools are able to provide the kinds of equipment and facilities that will accommodate sports activities, even during recess.
That’s why Beyond Sports NC is leading the way to raise awareness, money and equipment that will help Title 1 schools provide structured sports activities during the school day. “By giving a teacher a recess bag, it helps to break down economic barriers and allows students to play a variety of games and activities that will keep them engaged and motivated.”
To donate money or new equipment, stop by the Beyond Sports office at 1329 Beaman Place, Unit 6 in Greensboro, NC 27408 or donate online. Items can also be purchased off of our Amazon Wish List
Your financial support allows us to purchase new equipment and upgrade existing equipment at schools to allow for a better experience in school sports.
