Science of Sport recently began a partnership with Kerry Williams, Jr. and the Metropolitan Youth Foundation in Louisiana. Together, Science of Sport is helping to promote the growth of Louisiana children by bringing sports into the classroom and making STEM concepts come to life! Here is a little more about the Metropolitan Youth Foundation:
Metropolitan Youth Foundation, Inc. is a youth organization founded by Kerry T. Williams, Jr. and his wife, Stephanie. Kerry believes that the youth are our greatest strength and has coached and mentored children of various ages through a variety of programs over the past 35 years. Helping young people through a program that offers physical activity, academic enrichment, and mentorship is his vision for Metropolitan.
Kerry T. Williams, Jr. said, “Of all the partnerships Metropolitan Youth Foundation share, the most exciting, informative, attention grabber and most impressive is the Science of Sport! Metropolitan Youth Foundation engages our youth with an holistic approach to learning through sports. Our goal is to create the best student-athletes around. Science of Sport not only will assist us in doing so, but it will headline as a premier component of our organization! Science of Sport is the only program present in all programming aspects of MYF, such as MindStar (tutoring), MetroSteam (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics Clubs, MYSL (sports leagues), and PlaySafe (Student Athletes Fundamentals and Education). PlaySafe is the sports instruction initiative of Metropolitan Youth Foundation and employs an educational component to ensure our participants receive skills enhancement that will help them in school.”
The partnership between the Metropolitan Youth Foundation and Science of Sport has Kerry very excited about the upcoming Fall programs in New Orleans. He said, “Science of Sport has given us a tremendous edge necessary to set MYF apart from any other after school program!”
