Visit The Playmakers Academic & Leadership Program

You are invited to visit our program, and see what we are doing first-hand.

Coaching Character, Winning with Honor, and Pay It Forward are our core principles to empower youth to be the change they want to see in their lives, and in their future.

When you meet our kids and coaches, you can see how the coaches are working with the students – and the students love to show what they know!

Contact us to schedule a visit, 916-220-1284.

The Playmakers serves boys and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds, and with academic and social challenges. Our after-school programs teach character skills by applying values such as doing the right thing when no one is looking and working together as a team. Our goal is to change children’s lives through coaching, mentoring and encouraging them to think for themselves and their future. We introduce youth to volunteerism and giving back to their communities. Every donation keeps our programs open and helps us serving more students.
