THE SKILLS CENTER BELIEVES IN

LEADERSHIP

EDUCATION

EXCELLENCE

DISCIPLINE

We believe in the power of sports as a development tool for skills and knowledge that our youth need to function effectively as adults. The world is competitive. Every positive and negative experience will become a learning opportunity and a challenge for growth. This learning and determination will translate into the classroom, home-life, and will impact their future decisions. At The Skills Center, Inc. we want to turn a youth's sport experience into a comprehensive learning experience that will last a lifetime.

"I either win, or learn."

This powerful quote from Nelson Mandela serves as a reminder of our vision and core philosophy here at The Skills Center. We seek to impact academic achievements, build character, while promoting health and fitness for young people ages 3 to 18. Our primary focus is Tampa at this time, but we want to carry our vision far beyond the bay.

OUR APPROACH

The Skills Center’s programs are built around the Sport PLUS (Positive Learning Using Sports) Model. Sports PLUS integrates theories of human development, educational psychology and a number of principles from experimental education. Delivered over the past 15 years, this model is designed to actively utilize the natural life lessons that so consistently occur in sports from developing and reinforcing good character values to understanding group processing skills. The Sports PLUS model offers proven and effective structure, focus, and sound teaching methods.

More About Programs

Our school based programs focus on developing core competencies through academic instruction, character education, health & fitness and athletics. Our prevention services promote positive youth development for at risk elementary, middle and high school students.

Character education is the intentional, proactive effort to instill in students important core, ethical values.  It fosters ethical, responsible, and caring young people by modeling and teaching good character through emphasis on universal values that we all share. Character Education provides long-term solutions that address moral, ethical, and academic issues that are of growing concern about our society.

- Character Education Partnership

Using sports as a powerful learning tool, The Skills Center teaches youth how to transfer the skills learned naturally through sports to other areas in their lives such as school, work and community. The organization helps youth develop leadership attributes such as character, responsibility, respect, integrity, teamwork, conflict resolution, decision making and work ethics.
