TGA Sports Foundation intertwines sports, education and life lessons to change children’s’ lives.
Sports have the power to impact children emotionally, physically, academically and socially. TGA Sports Foundation harnesses that power to foster future leaders. Our programs provide children with unique access to athletics and academics, empowering them to achieve at the highest level. When children are physically and mentally stronger, they begin to excel at communication, leadership and self-confidence, inspiring their peers and communities. That’s why we believe that Sports Change Lives!
Today, more than ever, children require significant support to help them make healthy life choices and develop knowledge and skills to thrive in life. Childhood problems emerging from increasing health risks, low income families and gaps in education are leaving children without opportunity to gain key life lessons and experiences that allow them to by physically healthy, academically enriched and personally fulfilled throughout life. Many children are still limited by a lack of access to sports, to positive role models and academic learning opportunities beyond the classroom. TGASF works to expand access to sports, improving health, skills, and child achievement.
My son Matt’s big wish for the summer was to go to golf camp. I signed him up in March to be sure I saved him a spot at one of TGA’s camps. II was then laid off late April, and it was looking like I would not be able to afford to send my son to camp. Nate told me that the TGA Sports Foundation provides scholarships to kids that want to try golf, but would not be able to on their own. I contacted the Foundation and the rest is history. My son got to live his summer dream of playing golf because of TGASF! Thank you.
