a veteran makes a great coach


Operation Coach provides returning veterans the opportunity to coach youth sports in under-resourced communities. Through coaching, veterans learn to use the values of military service--like leadership, teamwork and discipline---to guide and assist young people in making smarter decisions.

Coach Kleiton

Miami

"This experience meant a lot and I learned so much.  I received a head start with my career in what I planned to do when i left the military, which is to work with kids in need of mentorship and a role model.  Serving as part of Operation Coach put me in that position."

 

COACH Sean

Philadelphia

"I’ve always loved sports and being re-acquainted with them after losing my leg helped me to cope with my situation better. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I felt the need to help someone else. I have a heart for the disabled, veterans and our youth. Working with Up2Us Sports has allowed me to address and service all three of these groups."

Los Angeles

"I have had a great impact on the lives of the children I mentored.  They have opened up to me about their personal problems and I have helped them cope with issues at home by simply being someone they can talk to."
