TOCO SPORTS is the staple of TOCO's programming and initiatives. It was created to support and provide underprivileged communities with balls, uniforms, and gear to encourage children of all ages to engage in sports programs rather than be lured by the violence of the streets. In 2009, TOCO distributed over 500 soccer balls and 600 uniforms to children in five underprivileged communities in St. Lucia. Since then, TOCO has expanded the program to Trinidad, Haiti, and in 2013 will expand the program to Grenada, Dominica and St. Vincent.
