Intentional Sports is a tax-exempt 501c3 with a self-sustaining business model consisting of no-cost programming and low-cost programming on one hand, and revenue-generating programming on the other. The no-cost/low-cost programming is geared towards children in the surrounding communities, and will primarily take place in the after school hours of 3-7 p.m.

The revenue generating programming will involve adult league play, regional tournaments, and off-season training for professional and collegiate athletes. Having both of these elements operating simultaneously at Intentional Sports will give us the resources we need to execute our vision of creating opportunity for children who otherwise lack it.
