Membership

Our membership is grounded in an assets-based association model: we leverage our members’ strengths and experiences to build more healthy and sustainable communities in the future. Whether you are a coach, educator, or Sports Based Youth Development (SBYD) professional, our Sport for Good League is a membership platform that will give you the opportunity to connect and grow with like-minded professionals who believe that sport has the power to change the world.

Laureus USA takes a holistic approach to building capacity in cities. Our association, or “League,” is one pillar of that work. The Sport for Good League addresses two primary needs we have observed over the foundation’s 15 plus years of experience:

  1. The lack of opportunities and resources for cross-sector and cross-function collaboration for individuals, organizations, and agencies using sport as a tool for social change
  2. The shortage of low-cost, high quality training and professional development resources across the sector and its many allied fields.

We believe that providing reliable supports and resources for these two foundational needs strengthens the other pillars of our work, including grant-making, community collective impact, and research and evaluation.
