It Takes A Community To Raise A Healthy Child

       Mind, Body, & Spirit, Our Future Leaders 

All of our children should have an opportunity to experience sports and health education for success in obtaining healthy lifestyles leading towards participation in their own healthy futures.

                                                    OUR MISSION

The Inner City Athletic Program's mission is to provide free athletic instruction and guidance to underprivileged, fostered, and disabled youth, by stressing the importance of nutrition, exercise, and education with community involvement in prevention of childhood obesity.

                                                                                           OUR VISION

The vision of the Inner City Athletic Program is to bring youth ages 7 to 14, who live in low-income communities, the awareness of health education, ways to decrease obesity, the importance of exercise, good nutritional choices, self-esteem, self-confidence, and the ability to adjust to their environment. The vision is to instill healthy minds, bodies, and spirit to become leaders in their communities.

​ICAP partners with the US Attorney's Office with theSuccess Agents, a literacy program at Porter & Johnson Elementary Schools once a month providing a physical activity aspect to the program.

Inner City Athletic Program would like to thank Wells Fargo for their very kind contribution towards serving our youth in underserved communities.

ICAP conducted a free Baseball Clinic at Encanto Little League Field, Saturday February 24th, also becoming recognized Live Well San Diego partners!

We will conduct another Baseball Clinic

in February 2019, as well.
