Olympians, Paralympians, teachers, coaches, parents, and more are involved in our TrueSport Ambassador and TrueSport Advocate programs. All of our representatives are incredible role models who help inspire future generations to achieve excellence through sport participation.


Ambassadors contribute to TrueSport by making appearances at youth sports events around the country, providing digital content for TrueSport.org, and much more. Advocates deliver TrueSport’s message on a more local level within their community and are also invaluable to the program’s mission.

Being a TrueSport Ambassador or Advocate is a great responsibility which takes passion, integrity, and commitment. Do you know someone who believes in the importance of the youth sport experience? Let us know!
