We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to making high-level sports training safe and available to all young athletes while helping them reach their potentials on and off the court.

We Believe...

  • Financial means shouldn't prevent kids from chasing their dreams

  • Coaching youth sports is a privilege, not a profit center

  • Developing the Person is more important than the Player

  • Using Science can make training safer and more effective

  • Parents need coaching too

A Youth Sports Revolution

Youth Sports is in crisis.  Fewer kids are participating in sports every year, with participation from low-income families dropping the most. 

At the same time, kids who are active in sports are being pressured at younger and younger ages to specialize in one sport, putting excessive financial burden on families and increasing the likelihood of injury and burnout in the athletes. 

The health benefits of keeping kids active in sports is tremendous, but the current trends in the youth sports industry are not "kid-friendly".

South Sound Roots Academy's goal is to reverse these negative trends in our community through responsible "kid-friendly" programming, and promoting community awareness of these issues. We are determined to give every kid a chance to be active, have fun, and learn to be the best person and player they can be.
