     "Well I think that the program is great it teaches kids how to play baseball! It also, helps kids be able to set goals in life and be able to do anything they put their mind to! A lot of people don't like baseball but they do now because of the camp!

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.

Inner City Athletic Program took 25 kids

​to MLB's All-Star Fan Fest and 15 kids to the World Baseball Classic at Petco Park,  thanks to our partner Tickets For Kids Charities,

                                                    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.

​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.

ICAP's summer program Terrific Tuesdays were fun and educational. Nutritional classes, stretching & exercises, sports activities, and field trips were all a part of a summer of fun & learning!

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

ICAP provides nutritional presentations, giveaways, partners with Constructing Hope at Fulton K-8, and host Spectacular Saturdays at MLK Rec.

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