"A life is only important in the impact has on other lives" - Jackie Robinson
Vision: All Philadelphia youth should have access to low-cost, high-quality, athletic opportunities that provide pathways to success both on and off the field.
Mission: We provide young people with opportunities to develop in an environment that builds character, promotes positive decision-making, and produces athletes who are prepared to lead on and off the field.
Model: We start young, play multiple sports, and keep kids involved year-round through high school and beyond.
Avg. Olympian played 2+ sports in high school! But your 11 year old is so good at baseball he needs to be playing… https://t.co/kkWgupKgUk
Our 13U team is getting their first taste of the college life today with a visit to @delstateuniv. They’ll tour campus, meet students and alumni, and attend tonight’s basketball game. Thanks to @dsuhornets for hosting us and @m8tr1x for having the idea and making it happen. #collegebound #somuchmorethansports #andersonmonarchs
13 dedicated coaches gave up their Friday nights to attend the kickoff of our 2018 Monarchs Coaches Training Series. Big thanks to @up2ussportsphilly for facilitating an energetic and thought provoking discussion about the power of youth sports and the importance of culture.
We’re lucky to have the great Joe Parisi, legendary head coach and athletic director at Lasalle College High School, working with our 15U team this year. Joe hopped in the cages to throw a little BP this past weekend.
It might not have been the Super Bowl, but day 1 of our Monarchs reading club was pretty exciting for us yesterday. Thanks and appreciation to @la_tor_ya for having the idea and making it a reality! #monarchpride #6toolplayers #somuchmorethansports
Absolutely LOVE the ball movement and hustle displayed by our 10U Monarchs on this play. If you’re judging success just on making shots then you’re missing the point. #themonarchway #monarchpride @sheedcarrblf @xander_the_mander_
We’ve been busy tonight...12U practice. #3monarchweave @m8tr1x @andersonmonarchs_u13
The big guys got in on the action tonight too...running down some clock then Euro-stepping to victory.
Why does everything in sports look smoother when a lefty does it? @sheedcarrblf #form #monarchs10U #multisportathletes
Reps and reps and reps and reps...#monarchs9U #215baseball
Our girls soccer training sessions got going last night with an awesome group! Coaches Jo and Toba kept things fun, challenging and high energy. #andersonmonarchs #soccerqueens #phillyfutbol #unitedphillysoccer
