We believe that when youth sport is done well, it has the power to transform the lives of Native youth and unify our communities. ZYEP connects with over 500 local youth every year through basketball, soccer, and flag football leagues. These leagues help Zuni kids learn to play sports in a fun, challenging, and highly supportive environment. Our empowering approach consists of educating community coaches and parents prior to each season, so we can work together to bring out the best in every child. Using the game and our positions as positive role models, coaches, parents, and ZYEP staff help our sport league participants develop skills, habits, and attitudes that will have a lasting impact on their lives.
