Vida y Prosperidad maintains its’ strong commitment to encourage youth sports in our community. By fostering sports teams we can help to enhance a young persons life. Playing sports is vital to aid in ones self esteem and helps to instill personal discipline.
Physical activity is essential for healthy and optimal development, through childhood and early adulthood, and youth sports provide many opportunities for a physically active routine. Boosting the well-being of kids through this time can help any community’s future, as children who participate in such activities are better adjusted as they enter adulthood, with plenty of life skills and lessons under their belts.
We offer support for general sports: Including Youth Baseball, Girls Softball, Soccer, Cycling, Chess, shore fishing, marathon running and Paralympics.
Our experience with the area baseball teams over the past several years has shown us that sports programs contribute to personal self-esteem, builds character and combats obesity. We have also seen that team participation is an attractive alternative to joining a gang by encouraging community, group pride and positive collaborative values thereby reducing drug usage and petty crime. As a former gang member told me, “I am now with a team, not a gang. You can’t score a goal when you are high on drugs. I like scoring goals”.
