About TrueSport:

The TrueSport mission is simple and bold: to change the culture of youth sport by providing powerful educational tools to equip young athletes with the resources to build life skills and core values for success on and off the field.

Powered by the experience and values of USADA (the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency), which is the country’s most trusted guardian of sport dedicated to preserving the integrity of competition at every level, TrueSport is founded on three cornerstones:

  1. Sportsmanship
    Winning the right way – with respect and gratitude for teammates, coaches, parents, and competitors.
  2. Character Building & Life Skills
    Using the sport experience to develop positive whole-life attitudes and behaviors: perseverance, leadership, goal-setting, decision-making and more.
  3. Clean & Healthy Performance
    Wellness-centric lifestyles that fuel athletic and personal success – in sport and in everyday life.
