About us TeamSports4All helps socio-economically disadvantaged kids participate in club sport in their community – kids from the poorest and most marginalised parts of our society. We all know that sport leads to a more active life and improved mental and physical health, but being part of a team and club also reduces social isolation, helps kids and families to make valuable community connections, exposes kids to a range of positive role models, and has been shown to reduce kids’ involvement in criminal activity and drug use. The support of TS4A makes it possible. We get these kids started in team sport by connecting them with a local club, getting them registered and paying the fees for them, introducing them to the team manager and coach, providing them with uniforms, footwear, equipment but most importantly providing ongoing support to the families via our sports mentors to encourage long term participation in sport.
