Young Minds in Motion is an organization founded in 2013 by coaches and parents who care about supporting the community through youth development, mainly focused on academics and athletics (primarily football). We wanted a team name that represents family values and shows where it all started. Therefore, The Bronx Wolfpack was created.
The organization aims to provide a program that emphasizes the importance of academic achievement, sportsmanship, teamwork, good character, and family. Through our competitive programs we encourage our children respect, leadership, and discipline; qualities that promote the healthy growth of youths as they become responsible adults.
What We Believe:
Competitive sports provide discipline, structure, and great career opportunities. It also instills respect and leadership qualities in our youths.
Who can be involved:
We are open to all youth between the ages of 5-14. We welcome all to be part of our organization regardless of the gender.
Age Only Programs:
Our young athletes should enjoy sports and play with their peers of their age. Therefor, we create teams based on age and not weight, which promote safety and solid development in sports.
The National Football League and USA Football support our philosophy.
Our commitment to parents/guardians and community is to maintain a quality program. We accomplish this through constant and clear communication with our members, as well as elected officials. We believe engaging parents/guardian by promoting involvement in their child's life.
Why we are different:
In addition to sports, we also have programs that help our parents raise well-rounded individuals. Our most successful program “Academic Accountability”, highlights to participants the benefits and consequences of their efforts and behaviors off and on the field. Our “Character Counts” program facilitates a discussion between parents and youths about character traits that are essential to becoming a responsible person. Lastly, our “Pay It Forward” program provides opportunities for participants to give back to their community.
