A L.A.C.E.S. coach goes beyond the game. They become role models, they invest in the social and emotional health of the children, teach them life skills and give them a sense of belonging. Our coaches are passionate about the youth in their communities. We pair their passion with the strategic tools enabling them to help, lead, and guide children to recognize their best selves and learn how to live that out in their daily lives.
Sports are globally understood and create a sense of community among us all. When paired with grassroots initiatives, sports play an important role in promoting cooperation, relationship building, and strengthening local capacities.
