Why We Do It

Empowering Through Inclusion: The Power of Sports

We operate on a simple yet powerful belief: sports can transform lives. Beyond physical activity, sports unite, teaching resilience and empathy. Every child, regardless of ability, deserves to experience this joy and sense of belonging. Our programs not only empower these children but also instill compassion in young athletes. Together, we’re building a more inclusive world where every individual is valued and celebrated.

Our Sports Programs

We are passionate about creating opportunities for individuals of all abilities to engage in sports and experience the joy of physical activity. Our signature programs, Inclusive Sports Days and Nothing But Nets, are designed to ensure that everyone can participate.

Inclusive Sports Days

Inclusive Sports Days

Inclusive Sports Days are free carnival-style events. We partner with professional athletes, universities, and school districts to host our events. Students with special needs within the school districts are invited to play for the day in an inclusive environment.

Nothing But Nets

Nothing But Nets

Nothing But Nets is an after school sports experience where we partner with club sports organizations to bring inclusive sports programming to communities. Our focus is on Volleyball, Basketball, and Soccer.

Our Goal

We’re all about bringing together children with special needs and student athletes in a fun, sports-filled environment. Our goal is to make sure these amazing kids feel included and cherished, while giving our athletes a chance to engage in their sport in a really rewarding way. It’s all about growing together, sharing smiles, and creating unforgettable moments on and off the field!

Kalena Burns Testimonial

Last year I had the opportunity to be a part of the Special Forces day and it was such a great experience being able to interact with these students and play games and have fun with them.

“Working with Matt Lance and his exceptional team has been an absolute delight! Our partnership resulted in an unforgettable Inclusive Sports Day. This event allowed us to tangibly demonstrate our core values within the community, fostering joy and a deeper understanding among all participants. Moreover, as a university, it allowed our staff and students to experience volunteerism in ways they might not have otherwise. The positive culture and pride that emerged from this collaboration have increased satisfaction and ignited a greater interest in making a difference.”

Cynthia Chilton

“The opportunity to partner with the Inclusive Sports Foundation over the past three years has been exceptional for our Athletics Department, student-athletes, and most importantly the 200+ students we serve in our community. Our Annual Inclusive Sports Day is magical and something our student-athletes look forward to every year because it is so impactful. The day is full of smiles, dancing and fun sports related activities that leave a lasting impact on everyone involved.”
