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.
Who We Are:
GO Sports equips coaches and teachers with resources to disciple their players and students. We offer baseball, girls’ and boys’ basketball, and girls’ and boys’ soccer academies as platforms for coaches to impact the lives of potential leaders with the truth of God’s Word. We also offer English and Bible classes to our players and will be adding more vocational training in the future, encouraging kids to explore the possibilities of life outside of sports. Our hope is that the relationships built between coach and player, student and teacher, team member and local leader would lead to mutual transformation. We believe that God uses these relationships to redeem people, renew communities, and restore creation.
What We Do:
Think of the GO Sports Academies as a cross between your park-district sports leagues and travel club teams. In a country that does not have organized school sports, we offer practices to the neighborhood kid who simply wants something fun to do, as well as the competitive athletes who has the potential to play in college or professionally. Both types of kids are welcomed in our academy. That is not the norm here in the DR! Our desire to include every kid is one of the main things that sets us apart. At the end of the day, our goal is not just to create great athletes, it is also to develop men and women into leaders and workers in the Kingdom of God.

“I have three kids in GO Basketball (2 boys & 1 girl). I am very grateful for what GO Basketball does for the kids, especially teaching them the Word of God. The behavior of my kids has improved. They now have more discipline and I ask God that He continues to help us direct the kids according to His Word.”Jesus LoraFather of 3 GO Basketball Athletes
“GO Futbol has been a great blessing to me because I wanted to play soccer for a long time but never had the opportunity. When the opportunity presented itself to play with GO Sports, I took it immediately. Honestly, playing soccer with GO Sports is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have matured more and had the opportunity to learn new things. I am very thankful.”Angel GabrielU18 Boys Soccer

We have always supported his participation in the academy as it has transformed his everything from his athleticism to his studies, and, most importantly, his spiritual life. He has taken on more responsibility and drastically improved in discipline in all of his activities inside and outside of GO. GO Sports has made a significant transformation in every part of his life. Thank you for letting us be a part of this.”Ramon and Dulce QuezadaParents of Darlin Quezada, Baseball College Prep Program
