MOF’s policy of inclusion applies to kids from all backgrounds

WE believe in:

• Fun
 ○ Decreases injury
 ○ Increases enthusiasm/eagerness
 ○ Prolongs involvement

• Focus
 ○ Exercise
 ○ Friendship
 ○ Sportsmanship
 ○ Skill development

• Fuel the basics
 ○ Keep it simple
 ○ Athlete-directed goals/motivation
 ○ Reward the effort rather than the outcome

Our programs include a design for at-risk youth with the following principles:

Benefits of sport are  contingent upon the relationships the youth engender and whether participation can help at-risk individuals deal with the social pressures they face in their everyday lives

Sports can provide a system of legitimate relationships – peers, fans, coaches, program leaders, etc. – that can increase participants’ self-esteem, pro-social values, conventional goals, discipline, empathy, and ability to work with others. Proponents maintain that it is these psychological factors that ultimately reduce violence among young people

To that end, our program will always endeavour to have:

Hands-on, attentive and caring coaches

Healthy competition: where there is  competition, there will be camaraderie . 

Physical exercise: Sports and physical activity lead to the release of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin which promote a sense of well-bring and positivism.

An emphasis on teamwork and sportsmanship which will lead to better connectedness with others.
