Where Youth and the Community are One in Sports!
This is where the heart of the community comes together to put YOU Back in Youth Sports. Our ancestors knew and valued that it takes a village to raise a child. Skyy2Win brings this all together in our greater community through youth sports at all levels... for ALL PEOPLE from all cultures regardless of skill or background, culture, means, or beliefs.
At Skyy2Win, SPORTS is the universal language that joins us all. It nurtures, heals, teaches, instills self-esteem, and promotes the common ground for youth development while planting the seeds for the future health of our society.
Skyy2Win is.... the popular name for the Skyy 2 Win Youth Foundation, a Maryland non-profit organization and intercommunity partnership that focuses on the whole youth and the core interwoven community values of fitness, education, empowerment, self-esteem, and leadership. Skyy2Win was founded by community youth sports veteran and business owner BJ Borden with partners throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to bring together the full collaboration of the community behind youth sports.
- The Eagle: Spirit, freedom, growth, prosperity and pride.
- The Skyy: No limit to how high you can go and succeed.
- The 2: Harmony and peace... Youth and Community.
- The WIN: Everybody wins!
Values Of The Game
“One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than 50 preaching it.”
– Knute Rockne.
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’”
– Muhammad Ali.
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” — Michael Jordan.
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
John Wooden, NCAA Hall of Fame UCLA Basketball Coach.
"You should never be proud of doing the right thing. You should just do it."
Dean Smith - NCAA Hall of Fame UNC Basketball Coach.
“One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team. ”
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Hall of Fame NCAA and NBA Legend.
“You are in control of your life. There are four things you can control everyday: attitude, work ethic, how you treat others and how you treat yourself.”
Pat Summitt, NCAA Women’s Hall of Fame Tennessee Basketball Coach.
Show me a guy who’s afraid to look bad, and I’ll show you a guy you can beat every time.”
Lou Brock, Major League Baseball Hall of Famer.
