OUR
MISSION

Over Under Initiative (OUI) is a non-profit dedicated to increasing access to sport in urban neighborhoods by converting public basketball courts and blacktops into multi-sport spaces. We believe accessibility to sport is the most impactful way communities can address the health crisis kids in the United States are facing.

The benefits of a childhood filled with multiple sports should be a right of all and not a privilege of a few.

OUI was founded by Kyle Martino following his run for US Soccer President. As he traveled the country listening to local communities, he became acutely aware of the steady drop in participation his sport was experiencing, and the national health crisis borne of that phenomenon. Further research and understanding helped to reveal this issue of consequence as not just soccer-specific, but a youth sports epidemic.
