What We Plan To Do To Help?
The ShareWaves Foundation was formed with a simple idea, use "the power of sports" to enrich young lives in our city. Our specific purpose is to promote participation in youth athletics. We will work together with like-minded youth sports organizations and community stakeholders to enhance young lives, promote participation, encourage the development of life skills, provide education, financial aid, leadership opportunities, and work to level the playing field for all. As we work towards 501c3 approval, The ShareWaves Foundation is registered to begin fundraising in Kansas and Missouri. We are excited about the future and about delivering on our promise to use the power of sports to transform young lives in our community.
Below are our 5 strategies for impact:
Promote the benefits of playing sports & advocate for youth sports involvement
Provide promotional support & resources to organizations that positively impact young lives.
Find ways to level the playing field for young athletes in our city.
Give every kid the chance to play the games we love.
Build healthy lives through greater access to sports activity.
Tomorrow's MVPs (Most Valuable People)
In sports, children contribute to something bigger than themselves. They learn important life lessons and experience character building interactions that have impact on and off the field. The values delivered through sports translate into respect for oneself and others, fairness, grace in defeat, humility in victory, and the virtue of self-denial. Sports teaches us cooperation with others, how to work together for a common goal, appropriate responses to victory and defeat, and life-enriching virtues like courage, humility, patience, and perseverance.
ShareWaves will work to advance the opportunity for every kid to experience the life-enriching effects of playing sports. Not just for one child. Or even one team. But for our entire community of kids. Imagine what that could do for this next generation.
We need you on the team
You know the impact that playing sports can have for a kid. It can improve confidence, teach life skills, and boost social and educational development. Better yet, playing sports creates the kind of individuals that value everything from teamwork to hard work. Those are the kind of people we all like being around. Those are the kind of people you can help develop. That’s why we need you on the team.
