What does Shaping Kids’ Lives Through Sports mean to you?
When it comes to shaping kids' lives through sports, Eric loves "seeing them grow and become the best version of them is what is most important to me. Sports, I think, can give kids a chance to experience the feeling of both winning and losing and understanding how to handle both ends of life, let alone sports. As well as learning the benefits of hard work, camaraderie, and integrity are a huge factor in sports, and building that bond your team and potentially making friends for life."
Started with Koa Sports in Spring 2022
