Who Coaches the Fatherless?
When most youth sports coaches are dads coaching their own kids, who coaches the teams of kids who don’t have a father in the home? With your help, RBI Austin is going to bat for these kids to provide year-round mentoring and coaching to kids who do not have a father in the home: View video.
Nationally, 85% percent of youth sports coaches are dads coaching their own kids.
But what happens in a community where 73% of kids are fatherless? Who coaches those kids?
It’s a different ball game in inner-city Austin.
We’re here at the Booker T. Washington housing complex in East Austin where 73% of kids are fatherless and less than 10% of these kids play organized sports.
But with your help RBI Austin is seeking to change that. With your help RBI Austin is going to bat for these kids.
Through one-to-one mentor relationships and RBI baseball and softball teams, a growing number of Booker T. kids have coaches in their lives and also can reap the lifelong benefits of playing youth sports.
