Home Field Advantage is a Non-Profit sports leadership program providing high school student athletes a coaching education curriculum that will allow them to coach after school sports programs at local elementary schools in their surrounding neighborhoods.


HFA’s mission is to create healthier, stronger, more active and connected communities through sports leadership development.


HFA’s vision is to create a sustainable sports structure within our communities by activating local neighborhoods through coaching education, ultimately leading the next generation of homegrown role models while using existing underused facilities.
