Our Mission “Building the Character of Children Through Team Sports” We want children in our programs to smile, to have fun, and to develop from whatever level of skill and passion for a sport to a higher level, each practice and each game of a particular season. That's how we define winning. If we had our way, every game of every season would be decided by a point or a run. Every team would be .500. But in sports as in life, sometimes you win big and sometimes you lose close. Our programs are designed so all our Knox Youth Sports players will learn teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership and how to handle success and shortcomings from every game, regardless of the score. And on the way home in the car after a game, it's our fond hope that family members will say, "I really loved watching you play today!"
