Welcome to The Sports Family Club - A website dedicated to enriching the lives of children through sports and activities

The Sports Family Club’s Mission:

Is to foster positive growth pathways for children through sports and activities. In collaboration with schools, organizations, communities, professionals and parents, The Sports Family Club hopes to develop a healthy environment for all children to participate in youth sports and activities to a higher level than they currently have access. The Sports Family Club fosters empowerment in all adults involved with youth sports and activities to maintain the proper perspective that youth sports are for and about children. The goals within our educational offerings are simple and forthright. Our top priority is developing the child participant’s confidence, self-esteem and respect for all involved with the particular game. We believe in fostering a passion for the activity through enjoyment, not results.

The Sports Family Club's Vision:

That all children will enjoy sports for what they! That children will reap the many benefits of sports and activities and improve their overall health, development and well-being. The Sports Family Club is committed to ensuring that our sports and physical activities will teach positive character building, team work, overcoming adversity and provide an opportunity to make friends for life. The Sports Family Club works to see that through sports childhood obesity, delinquency, and other risks of childhood will be ameliorated, thereby proving less of a burden on society and developing individuals, and looks to sports to provide a positive impact on children, family, and community.

Doug Bernier on his Parent's Influence

"I would have never had the opportunity to play professional baseball for 11 years and counting if it wasn't for my parents influence in my life.

They always supported and never pushed me when it came to sports. My dad told me at an early age that if I ever wanted to practice throwing, hitting, or anything all I had to do was ask. In the time I lived at home growing up he never said "no".

If you're a parent, I hope you will think about your dreams for your children, or at least evaluate how you will relate to your children and their desires.

Levon Kirkland on his High School Coach

Thank you for the invite to The Sports Family Club. There were several people that helped me in my development as an athlete, but I’d like to focus this article on my high school football coach, Terry Styles.
