InterTribal Sports (ITS) serves nearly 22 tribes located within San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, ITS strives to unify tribal youth and communities through structured athletic programs while providing necessary resources and developing a strong foundation in culture, leadership and wellness. Over 1,800 Native youth ages 4 – 18 participate in programs specifically designed with youth development in mind. Tribal youth not only develop athletic skill year round but they also share and learn about each other’s unique cultures, language, songs, traditions and aspirations. They form friendships guided by coaches who are also positive community role models, leaders and elders in their communities. Whether it’s basketball, flag football, cheer, softball, soccer, run club, cultural or leadership gatherings, all activities operate within a structured program season that is non-profit, volunteer-oriented, and open to all tribal youth.
