The Need: Imagine coaching a volleyball team with 20 athletes and 1 ball for practice. Imagine having to use multiple different style jeresys 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.
Key Missions: To bring resources to individuals and schools to help get more kids involved in sports by eliminating the financial barriers of sports by providing new and used equipment for participants and coaches.

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 Guilford County’s 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.
Your financial support allows us to purchase new equipment and upgrade existing equipment at schools to allow for a better experience in school sports.
