About Us

Beyond Sports Foundation prepares student-athletes to succeed in life. Our student-athletes typically come from under-resourced families in under-served communities and will need financial assistance in order to attend college. Many of our student-athletes are from populations that are under-represented on college campuses.

Beyond Sports Foundation uses the power of sport to transform lives by turning athletic ability into life opportunity.

Academic Development

Beyond Sports provides subject-specific tutoring to all of our student-athletes throughout the school year. Students meet with tutors after school multiple times per week for support in topics ranging anywhere from chemistry, to time management, to studying for finals. As rising juniors and seniors, students participate in an 8-week summer workshop in order to prepare for the ACT and SAT.

Athletic Development

Beyond Sports students receive athletic training through EFT Sports Performance. In addition to speed, strength, and agility training, students have opportunities to meet college coaches, attend summer camps, and take advantage of numerous resources offered by EFT staff and facilities.

Social Responsibility

Scheduled community service activities (such as volunteering at the Avon Breast Cancer Walk and the Warrior Dash). It is important for student-athletes to know that the gifts bestowed upon them should be shared with those around them who are in need.

Professional Development and Mentorship

Exploration of interests outside of sports is encouraged. When sport ends, we want to ensure that student-athletes have a game plan to be the best they can be for their families, in the workforce, and in their communities. Workshops such as speech/presentation assignments, financial readiness, and career days at fortune 500 companies are planned. Student-athletes are also paired with board members, junior board members, trainers, and tutors for mentoring.
