About Us

SPORT-BASED YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

Be An Inspiration® is Netball America’s unique youth program that uses sport as a platform to empower youth for peace and strong futures, while increasing participation in sports, reducing childhood obesity, breaking down barriers to reduce discrimination and increasing

social-emotional well-being. 

BAI® has impacted over 100,000 youths, mainly girls.

Our results have consistently shown that girls have increased their physical activity from 0-1 days per week to 3-5 days per week and that feelings of being overweight or negative self-image have dropped

30-35%. Kids also are focusing on hydrating and eating 25% more fruits and vegetables. 91% have demonstrated the ability to positively react to difficulties and 81% have shown ability to get along with different backgrounds.   

Our program (BAI®) aligns with the

Aspen Institute's Children's Bill of Rights in Sports

Our program (BAI®) contributes to the

UN Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals)

which are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure all people

enjoy peace and prosperity.

We have a structure in place that uses sport as a primary tool to drive positive social transformation.  Lives have been significantly changed by delivering a demonstratable,

long-term benefit to those we have engaged. 

We are using sport to reduce inequalities, increase access to sport for marginalized communities and to address social issues in their communities.

 

Our Work

Our programs have received awards from many organizations including: 
Billie Jean Kings Women’s Sports Foundation, ESPNW, Atlanta Falcons Foundation,

The programs provide youth with opportunities for leadership, teamwork, improving sedentary attitudes, anti-bullying, and nutrition education.  Our aim is to encourage children and families to be physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and includes those with disabilities to ensure they feel part of their community.
