jD LAW, P.C. Supports the San Diego Generals
In 2017, the San Diego Generals became the first Division 1 Junior All-American Youth Football & Cheer Travel Team playing out of San Diego, California. The program was created in a low-income area of San Diego to give kids something to turn to and avoid gangs, drugs, and violence. As a criminal defense law firm, jD LAW, P.C., knows the consequences of this lifestyle better than most. That’s why we’re proud to lend our dollars and our support to the Generals, and cheer them on in this upcoming 2019 season!
This youth league was started after its founders witnessed shootings, stabbings, and other violence near outside courts where young kids were playing basketball. Beyond teaching responsibility, hard work, and self-discipline, the San Diego Generals hosts cleanup events to help the participants and their families take pride in their community, as well as entertainment nights for fun.
There are three football teams currently: age 9-10, age 11-12, and age 13-14. The Generals’ aim is to develop each child’s:
- Health & wellness
- Character development
- Scholastic excellence
“We are going to change the kids’ outlook on their environment and show them that there are other options… Through teamwork and sportsmanship, they learn that life is not an individual journey. If we teach them positive lessons, such as playing by the rules, and importance of giving to the community, our young athletes will learn to change their conditions.”
This youth football and cheer team is all-inclusive, and kids are not judged based on their family’s income or their athletic ability. Its goal is to encourage special needs, at-risk, and anti-gang programs, as well as promote visibility in the international football community.
The San Diego Generals rely on sponsors for all their equipment, travel expenses, and meals for the kids after the games. You can help the Generals by making a donation here.
