WHO WE ARE
United Through Sports (UTS), founded in 2017 is the international entity formed under the umbrella body, the Alliance of Independent Recognised Members of Sport (AIMS). AIMS is one of the 5 umbrella bodies fully recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF).
UTS was formed as a united step towards creating more inclusive and equal sporting events for Non-Olympic sports as well as Olympic, Paralympic and the Special Olympics. The UTS community has experienced rapid growth over the last few years sparking a global movement towards placing youth in all their diversity at the centre, right where they should be.
UTS is a unique bridge uniting the international sport community through sports, towards giving youth across the 5 continents opportunities to thrive and flourish.
By forming strong alliances, UTS delivers multi-sport events including sport festivals, tournaments and educational events that promote a healthy body and healthy mind.
The foundation of UTS is based on 4 key values:
We believe in a world where our diversity should be celebrated. With a united and active approach, we ensure all youth have access and opportunities towards a healthy lifestyle and well-being.
We believe gender, race, orientation, culture, religion and our beliefs should not limit access to sports, social activities and opportunities. Humankind should be given equal opportunity.
We ensure the human rights of youth are protected and exercised without discriminaton of any kind.
We advocate for world peace through respect for one another, encouraging tolerance, harmony and equal participation in our events regardless to culture or identity.
To support and improve the lives of youth by providing inclusive, protected and equal access to sport and education, so they can thrive on the playing field of life.
The core mission of UTS is to form alliances, united for all youth in promoting and encouraging a healthy lifestyle through sport and education.
We work to deliver access to sports for all youth with an inclusive approach, as a basic human right.
Our goal is to bring people, organisations, NGOs, governmments and cities together through sports to empower youth so their voices are not only heard but, action is taken to support their needs.
