350 Athletes, 60 Teams and Growing.

Breakthrough offers a sports program to engage young athletes in year-round leagues while teaching sportsmanship and promoting healthy lifestyles.

You can help make every season a success for hundreds of young athletes.

Breakthrough Sports started in 2001 with 12 teams. Now, with over 60 teams, we hope to continue expanding by engaging approximately 1,060 youth each year. You can contribute to the success of Breakthrough Sports by supporting the youth through one of our league or team sponsorship opportunities.


A league or team sponsorship is a great way to make a lasting impact on the lives of youth in East Garfield Park. Your support will help:

  •   Surround youth with a network of caring coaches.
  •   Make quality sports available and affordable for children.
  •   Increase opportunities for more youth to stay healthy, happy and active!

The annual Breakthrough Sports budget is approximately $118,000. This budget covers facility rentals, administration, training costs, equipment and uniforms along with league and tournament entry fees. The support of local community businesses helps us to continue grooming young leaders.
