We are an after-school enrichment program coaching life principles to challenged youth

The Playmakers Organization’s fundamental principles are centered around:

  • Academics
  • Family
  • Respect & Character
  • Serving the Community
  • Winning with Honor

Playmakers Academic and Leadership Program helps students overcome challenges in school, and on the playground.

Our character and leadership program has three primary components: Character & Leadership, Academics, Fitness.

Program Coaches (typically a college student) assist the students to maintain and increase reading levels along with getting active out on the field making sure to include everyone. Boys and girls with academic and other challenges also learn about character — doing the right thing when no one is looking. Our goal is to foster self-esteem in young lives and build a pay-it-forward mentality with acts of kindness on the playground and volunteerism in the community.

Young Playmakers start by learning The Playmakers Creed.

Sacramento Optimists and Rotarians have committed to supporting our mission.

Our civic group partners show the best examples of giving back to the community and we are grateful for their support. We want youth to see that giving back is a mindset, and that sometimes means the time you can give holds the most value. The Optimist Creed and the 4-Way Rotary test are values that support the culture we create.
