The James Vick Foundation Inc. is a 501c(3) nonprofit dedicated to providing accessible athletics to young athletes. The mission was founded by James Edward Vick, who dreamed about a sports program that was both accessible and competitive. After James Vick passed away in 2013, his family created the foundation so that his legacy may endure. The organization has served thousands of families in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York.
Our primary objective in all our programs is to provide an accessible, enriching, positive experience for the participants. We offer tournaments, leagues, club teams, clinics, and various forms of athletic operations in multiple sports.
We truly value education here at the JVF. The #1 priority for any of the Student athletes in our programs is academic excellence on and off the field. Just as is the case with athletics, education is inextricably tied to our mission.
Our focus on education is rooted in our scholarship system. The JVF takes a school-based approach to the athletes and we view them as students first. All Student-athletes enrolled in JVF programming are awarded a full scholarship that covers field time, uniforms, gear, insurance, tournaments, professional coaching, and exposure.
