Our Mission Is Simple

We connect with at-risk youth through sports and offer them the tools for a brighter future.

Sports are a universal language no matter your age, gender, or ethnicity. They are a high-impact, low-cost tool that can affect countless lives and inspire change in all who participate.

The Problem


Foster youth death row population


U.S. prison foster youth population


Incarcerated within 2 years of "age out"

Today, millions of children around the world have the privilege to play recreational sports. Progression Athletics International was created with a mission to bring those same opportunities to the even greater number of at-risk youth who do not have the same opportunity.

Since 2011, we have impacted over 8,700 youth in six countries around the world. One of the main programs we offer are sports clinics both domestically and internationally. At these events we provide training, T-shirts, sports bags, wristbands, and trophies to those who demonstrate positive behavior.

Many of the children PAI serves do not have parents, have been abused or neglected and are looking for love and PAI provides this through the power of sport. Athletics has the unique power to attract, mobilize, and inspire. In order for the sport to be a success, multiple participants have to share the same vision and goal. Sports help teach life values such as respect for the opponent, competition, acceptance of binding rules, teamwork and fairness.

This is the platform Progression Athletics International provides to the youth we serve!

We need your help

Let's help an at-risk youth and get them on the right track

We strategically partner with organizations who house, nurture and work with the children we want to impact. Our mission with these partners is to take their recreation department to the next level with our clinics and programs. We have had great success and solidified these relationships over the years…

Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers – Nelson Mandela
