Cristo Rey students, coaches, and athletic directors across the country express their gratitude to Good Sports for helping to expand sports and physical education opportunities in their schools.

"Thanks to Good Sports, we were able to start our softball program. I am so thankful that we could play this year after waiting for two years for a softball team to be a reality!"
Dayna, Cristo Rey Columbus High School student

"Having the equipment for our team gives us hope and opens the doors of opportunity for us. It is very important for us this year, because it is the first year we were accepted into the league as an official team."
Rodrigo Winther, Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School, Boys' Soccer Coach

"We are extremely thankful for the donation of equipment from Good Sports. The protective gear and other essentials for our girls' and boys' soccer programs were vital to the launch of our first full season. I cannot thank them enough for helping us significantly reduce the operating cost for that program."
John Davidson, Cristo Rey Tampa High School, Athletic Director

"We are so grateful for the equipment from Good Sports. We added more students to the boys' and girls' programs, and the cones and balls provided allowed us to start the season with enough equipment. We had no goalie gloves in our inventory, so the ones Good Sports provided were much needed. Previously, the goalies would buy their own gloves. Thank you, Good Sports."
Guy Moore, Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School, Director of Athletics

Through the generous support received from a variety of funders, equipment manufacturers and distributors, Good Sports provides a diverse range of sporting needs to under resourced deserving organizations on a year-round basis. Since 2003, Good Sports has donated over $41 million worth of equipment, helping over 6 million young athletes.
