Jags Dream Team Usiel Perez, Axel Villasenor, Tyson McDowell, and Jacob Snoodgrass

In 2008, 30.2% of youth ages 6 to 12 were active to a healthy level through sports, organized or unstructured; by 2015, that number had dropped to 26.6%, according to SFIA. Among 13- to 17-year-olds, the rate fell from 42.7% to 39.3%.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children under the age of 12 to 13 should avoid specialization.

Jags Dream Team will encourage participation more than competition.

Jags Dream Team will be operated by IUPUI PETM, including students and faculties.

Jags Dream Team will be brought to local Indy Elementary schools. The purpose is to develop enough participation to make a year-around program.

Jags Dream Team will make hiring coaches and instructors of high quality a priority.

Playing youth sports develop values like discipline, commitment, teamwork and leadership which our society values, and we trust that these experiences provide sufficient physical activity to maintain a healthy population.

Funding will be made possible by local business and fundraising.

The ultimate goal would be to have Jags Dream Team run year around in facilities like Grand Park.
