Mission Statement: GO Sports develops international partnerships that result in mutual transformation. We empower local coaches to disciple athletes who influence their community as leaders of the next generation.
Our Sports academies are a platform for our coaches to pour into the next generation of potential leaders with the truth of God’s word. We train Dominicans to be athletes and achieve their dreams, while we dually prepare them with a vocational skill to provide for themselves and their families.
Our new Leadership Development Complex will include two professional and three little league baseball fields, one full-size soccer field and six covered basketball courts and three covered volleyball courts. In addition, we’ll have an incredible 2500-person capacity basketball/volleyball arena for events and tournaments. These facilities will be used for camps, clinics, leagues, tournaments, and training for athletes in our full-time academies.
Why sports? As the economy suffers in the Dominican Republic, drug treatment programs take a back seat to simple basics such as food, shelter, and education for the citizens. Helping young people avoid the beginning of a drug habit is essential. When young people stay away from drugs, drug addiction, and trafficking, an entire culture can begin to heal – as these youths grow into adults.
GO Sports utilizes mentorship to develop character in our athletes and encourages them to achieve their dreams, while dually preparing them with a vocational skill that will allow them to provide for themselves and their families.
