Uncommon Sports Group exists to develop Christ-centered leaders of the sport industry.
Created by former student managers, our organization began as a class project following Drew Boe’s first-ever mission trip to Rwanda in 2012. Throughout his time as a graduate student at Virginia Tech, Drew began discussing and developing the framework with his graduate professors and mentors in the sport industry. Drew’s three weeks in Rwanda allowed him to experience firsthand the transformational power of a mission trip, leading to the creation of the "Development thru Service" motto which we are founded on today.
Since our inception in 2013, our ministry has invested over $500,000 into the development of student managers and other future sport leaders. This funding has come from more than 200,000 pounds of sports apparel and equipment donated through our Clean Out For A Cause® program. From this funding we've seen over 150 students participate in one of our international mission trips and/or domestic impact weekends, and we awarded scholarships to another 75 students.
During the fall of 2020, we officially transitioned into our new brand: Uncommon Sports Group. This rebrand took place because we believe that our organization serves the entire sport industry, not just managers! We also feel strongly about developing the Christ-centered leaders through various opportunities in addition to mission trips.
