Urban Games Society
In October, 2008, Urban Games Society™, Inc. (UGS) was formed as a non-profit youth and community development corporation to promote Urban Performing Arts™ Fitness through UrbanGames™ Sports League as an organized recreational activity that provides an opportunity for athletic advancement in the sport according to desire and ability. The UGS produces events and tours, runs competition clinics and training camps, publishes news journals, and conducts other activities that support participant development.
In 2013, we instituted UrbanGames™ Sports League for life campaign which spans an urban performing artist life cycle, focusing on support for family and community. The life cycle begins upon person participating in UrbanGames Sports programs and services throughout the remainder of their life. We’re building faith in UrbanGames Sports franchise through our commitment to help this generation of young Americans.
As part of our campaign, we are engaging leaders across the government, community, and corporate spectrum to understand the ranges of support available and how best to link that support to the people, families and communities that need it.

How to Play
Fun National Sports Challenge and Live Party Events
The object of the sport is to score points using music, dance, the performing arts, martial arts, and African traditions and customs. You earn points based on your performance in various events. The higher score wins each event and the team or individual with the most points scored determines the winner.
This fun, fresh, raw blend of music, dance and talent is a great recreational program that builds self-esteem and pride in culture and community.
Martial Arts, step, dance, acrobatics and gymnastic elements are performed to taped music that last from two to ten minutes in length. Movement must convey grace, strength, flexibility, balance, artistry, rhythm, harmony, risk, innovation, creative, and individual skills.
