Our Core Values
To Have Fun
God created enjoyment, fun, and life abundant. Whatever we do we want it to be enjoyable and passionate for the kids who come to GoodSports.
We all have a lot to learn. Baseball, soccer, and other sports are filled with fun rules, but more than sports rules - it is about learning languages, being good in school, and learning about ourselves.
Respect for ourselves and others. Respect for teachers, parents, coaches, and even the environment. Everyone is valuable.
To Learn God's Love
We want to give an opportunity for kids, adults, and volunteers to discover the God who loves them. It is the central focus of all we do.
Part of the way people discover how they are loved by God is how they are loved by us. Experiencing God's love and being able to share that love with others is central to our program.
GoodSports International Inc. began in 1994 in Slovakia and expanded to Hungary in 1997. Since 2015 we are discovering new opportunities to work with other nonprofits, like World Relief, who are serving refugee children in Texas. GoodSports is exploring how we can join with other US children's sports outreaches in the USA.
We are dedicated to reaching children with the love of Christ through sports, recreational, and educational activities.
What about the next 25 years? Will churches and individuals remember the work being done in Hungary and Slovakia? Teamwork Plus was created for those who are in a new financial space to provide funding as a Legacy Giver.
Your donations will go to a principle that will never be used other than to earn income for the future. Grants from the dividends earned will be made available to our programs not covered by our donors who are focusing on our annual operating budget. This includes salaries, construction, and special needs.
