Children Playing Football

What we do

We support North Carolina communities by facilitating free sports clinics in accessible neighborhoods to underserved populations. Even Playing Fields provides free educational resources to families searching for guidance in the healthcare system, school system, and other social opportunities. 

Where we do it

Even Playing Fields is focused on bringing sports and educational resources to the communities living in North Carolina. Families should be able to access quality youth development outlets no matter where they live in the state.

Why we do it

We want to make higher education more accessible for youth in North Carolina through sports and educational resources. These resources can be used to bridge gaps between underserved communities and educational institutions. However, youth sports and academic resources must be more available for a larger group of individuals living in North Carolina. A kid's ability to succeed in sports and school should not be determined by their socioeconomic status, their address, or their language.
