What we do
Chattanooga Sports Ministries (CSM) is a part of the Chattanooga Football Club Foundation 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which is dedicated to serving youth ages 8-14 in Chattanooga’s most economically challenged neighborhoods. Founded in 2006, CSM began as an experiment in inspiring young adults to mentor at risk youth by using the sport of soccer. However, as our program has grown and expanded over the years, our vision has as well. We now envision Chattanooga’s inner city transformed by providing safe, supportive, and healthy environments for our children, where every child has access to nutritious food, safe activities, an active and intentional support system, and knows the lifelong benefit of making wise choices.
Our vision is for healthier and better connected Chattanooga.
Our mission is to impact urban youth in Chattanooga with the intersection of faith and athletic engagement.
