As a member of John Paul 2 Foundation 4 Sport (JP2F4S), whether you join as an individual or group, you will receive the tools to develop the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspect to your life … your PIES.

JP2F4S will furnish you with programmes designed to help you develop your life-skills – call them virtues – vital if you are to fulfil your potential.

Sport not only helps you stay fit and healthy – as well as reducing the dangers of obesity  – but JP2F4S will put you into contact with like-minded clubs in this country and abroad to enable you to exchange ideas and share best practice in the development of physical education and sport.

Our Foundation sees sport as HERE: Healthy, Educational, Recreational and Evangelising [i.e. Good News] as it bridges the gap between individuals and communities throughout our Global City.
