WHERE TEAMS AND DONORS CONNECT

Hide Overlay

Sports can be a driving force for solving the challenges facing our youth such as obesity, academic dropout rates, violence and teen pregnancy. As a former division 1 athlete, Lizzy Showman had seen the positive effects of organized athletics in developing discipline, teamwork, and responsibility. While initially created to fulfill her Masters thesis, In.Bounds has quickly taken on a life of its own after realizing the need and potential for such a platform.

Currently In.Bounds is conducting a pilot program to further research and development in creating the beta platform. In the future, teams and individuals will be able to create campaigns (currently curated) using the In.Bounds tools to seek funding towards equipment, field access (private/ public), camps/ field trips and start a new team.
