What We Do

We at The Home Team intend to create an inclusive and affirming environment that assists in the development of our youth in the Greater Miami Area. In addition to increasing the students’ academic, social and developmental success, we believe our programs will strengthen their social skills on a personal and community level.

Our programs strive to create successful students by emphasizing the importance of academics to achieve personal goals and vice versa.  The mission of our programs is to instill the significance of sports, teamwork, accountability and discipline throughout all aspects of the students’ life. Our goal is to develop children physically, mentally and socially. 

Our differentiating factor is our reward-based, incentive system. We are committed to assisting all participants who meet the requirements of our programs in their diverse interests. This will include, but not be limited to, coverage of all registration fees, additional costs associated with youth sports leagues, opportunities to attend sporting events, plays, performances, shows, field trips, internships, community service opportunities, employment and college recruiting services. In order to meet our goals, our evaluation process includes monitoring the academic progress, personal growth and involvement in extracurricular activities of our participants. By comparing these factors during the child’s duration in our program, we are able to determine which areas need to be improved upon in order to fulfill our purpose.
