United Through Sport provides disadvantaged and vulnerable children with the opportunity to participate in their Junior School of Excellence, receiving sports coaching, life skills classes, personal mentoring, a meal everyday and the opportunity to get a place at a top level high school. The Junior (and Senior) School of Excellence program provides top-level coaching and academic schooling for aspiring athletes.
Many children in disadvantaged and vulnerable communities rarely receive opportunities that allow them to play and enjoy the sports they love, while simultaneously receiving a life-changing education that improves their health and life skills. These improvements can have an enormous impact on future generations and can transform families and communities.

United Through Sport are committed to using sport as a tool to develop disadvantaged and vulnerable youth. We do this by using direct sports coaching – for its health benefits, improved emotional well-being and increased life skills (teamwork, leadership, decision making, communication), using sport to discuss critical issues by delivering curriculums on topics such as HIV/AIDS awareness in a fun and interactive manner on the sports field and using sport for improved education by providing pathways to success for talented and dedicated individuals through scholarships to top local schools and tertiary education.
