Moonshot Sports

 

"Moonshot Sports" is a group of local Coaches supporting the Indian River County School District's "Moonshot Moment" goal of 90% literacy by third grade. We do this by using the coaching relationship to teach children and their families about the importance of being a good reader, and providing books, reading tips and other resources to the parents. These Coaches also will support their older athletes to act as mentors to younger children, so that they can share their common love of the sport to develop mentoring skills that are also tied to improving literacy.

“No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.” - Calvin Coolidge

Scholar athletes will:
Practice and play fair.
Obey the rules.
