After home and school, it’s often athletic fields and facilities that become the “third place” for so many kids. As such, we take our responsibility as community organizers very seriously. The text included below is a take on how we view our role and what we mean by “The Tao of Koa.”
Before Koa Sports had a name, a logo or a website, it was one man (Tony Korson) coaching a group of neighborhood baseball players. While our 501(c)3 has grown significantly over the last five years, our culture, customer service and central mission — ‘shaping kids’ lives through sports’ — hasn’t changed. That can only happen with a full-time staff who live, eat, breath, play, train, compete, sleep, don’t sleep, question, listen, improve, celebrate and champion Koa Sports. Everything we do starts with our full-time staff — from answering the phones to setting your schedules to hiring our coaches.

Koa is committed to shaping kids’ lives through sports. Through the following approach, Koa aims to develop each child to his or her full potential as an athlete and a person:
-Employing trained and dedicated professional coaches and instructors who operate under the supervision and management of our full-time professional staff.
-Providing a positive community for our young athletes and their families.
-Using sports as a vehicle to teach life lessons like hard work, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and coping with adversity.
While many of our young athletes will enjoy long, successful playing careers in high school and beyond, we recognize not all are destined for professional, college, or even high school competition. Whatever the sport, activity, or level of competition, Koa’s basic philosophy is the same – shaping kids’ lives through sports. Consistent with this philosophy, Koa affords its young athletes the opportunity to develop in their sport of choice and, ultimately, in the game of life.
