We can change the world by investing in one youth at a time.

With your help our Character & Leadership program can impact more young lives.

Coaching Character, Winning with Honor, and Paying It Forward are our core principles to empower & strengthen youths and their family relationships. many youth are lost and struggling, and do not always have family to turn to.

The Playmakers Coaches Kids through tough situations and from very difficult circumstances.

When you choose to support The Playmakers, you are contributing to something bigger than yourself.

Our mission is to provide under-served youth with coaching in three core areas: Academics, Fitness, and most importantly, Character and Leadership skills. When we invest our time with these students, good things happen. Behavior issues in the classroom drop off, and students are spreading inclusion, and learning that helping others brings many personal rewards.

We work from a written curriculum, serving the needs of each campus community we serve. Hear what the principal at Skycrest Elementary has to say about the positive changes on their school campus.

Our organization gains much needed cash flow for providing consistent programs when you donate monthly.

For each young Playmaker (Lil’ Pup) in our program, it takes around $5/day to provide tutoring assistance with trained coaches, curriculum tools, snacks, field trips, and other items needed for day-to-day operations. Hear what Playmaker Parents are saying about our program…


You can donate in any increment that is comfortable with you. We love visitors! Feel free to drop-in and meet our Lil’ Pups and Coaches. You can see a list of our program locations here.

Contact Coach Roz at 916-220-1284, or email him here if you would like to setup a monthly donation with our business office.
