HOLA’s Athletics promotes personal development, health and fitness, commitment to athletic excellence and exemplary sportsmanship. Activities not only promote physical exercise, but serve as an outlet from the stresses of daily life and an opportunity to learn teamwork skills that will last a lifetime. In addition to providing free basketball and soccer leagues and clinics, instruction in a variety of sports including flag football, swimming, tennis, soccer, volleyball and basketball, HOLA offers a wide array of Wellness Programs.
Through a unique partnership with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, HOLA’s kids enjoy much needed green space – a state-of-the-art field turf soccer field, outdoor basketball courts and a full-sized gym. These facilities are safe spaces that are open year-round and offer the youth of the community an alternative to life on the streets.
