Title 1 School Clinics & Programs
Sports provides healthy opportunities to learn skills, take risks, and achieve goals. Combining sports in education can help students to develop a self-motivating spirit to do things on their own and having ownership of these opportunities. Beyond Sports partners with qualified coaches from local clubs and organizations to provide clinics and opportunities to play a variety of sports. We partner with local colleges and university athletes to provide role models and connect the importance of academics with athletics. Our programs help support the overall experience for students, teams and athletic programs at Title 1 schools in Guilford and Forsyth County.
Our goal is to introduce a variety of sports at the elementary level to encourage kids to find their passion and participate in sports. We partner with local sports organizations and NC A&T student athletes to provide a fun environment and mentors and coaches that the kids can look up too.

For many middle schoolers this is the first opportunity to play a team sport .Most middle school sports are coached by teachers with little to no experience with the sport. Our goal is to provide positive support both for the players and coaches to help make the experience more enjoyable!

THE IMPACTWe know health and wellness are challenges in everyone’s life and become greater challenges when impacted by food insecurity and poverty. We want to provide equity around these resources for our students. Beyond Sports will help us provide this equity for our students and give them a broader lens through which to view health and wellness. We know that when students are active they are more engaged in learning and have more positive associations with school. We feel Beyond Sports can help us build that for our students. – Washington Montessori Elementary School.
We are so appreciative of the opportunity to partner with Beyond Sports. Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students have thoroughly enjoyed their sessions with you, and I am grateful for the exposure they’ve gained to new sports they may have otherwise never experienced. We appreciate your commitment to enriching our students’ lives and building character through sports. Thank you! Meredith Boger Principal Johnson Street Elementary
