1st Sports Foundation

The 1st Sports Foundation is dedicated to empowering today’s youth through our comprehensive programs that integrate sports and education.

Founded by Joseph Rollo on May 31, 2016, our organization recognizes the importance of excelling in both school and sports. By immersing young kids in Coach Rollo’s programs, we witness firsthand how their environment shapes their growth. Our ultimate goal is to instill character and confidence by teaching the fundamental principles of sports, creating a generation unafraid to participate in group activities and maintain an active, healthy lifestyle as they mature.

In addition, the 1st Sports Foundation actively raises funds for youth programs, scholarships, and charitable causes within the community.
