Even Field In The Media

To cultivate greater character, integrity, and ethical behavior in sports and life. Our message is that The Way You Win Matters. We use the powerful influence of sports to champion character traits and habits that lead to excellence on and off the field.
We present real-life experiences from professional and amateur athletes, coaches, and others involved with sports at all levels. We share these life lessons with children, teens and adults through forums, clinics, videos and other media to promote integrity, and improve the culture of youth sports.
We utilize role-modeling, positive peer influence, and peer-level connection to engage young people and adults on issues involving character, integrity and core values.
Student to Student. Coach to Coach. Parent to Parent.
When character and integrity are emphasized in youth sports, athletes are more likely to develop positive qualities and core values that will help them responsible choices on and off the field.


Chuck Wilson’s message of “The Way You Win Matters” has already made a positive impact on Rhode Island. Chuck’s passion for educating young athletes, coaches, parents and other adults is contagious and his “storytelling” style of speaking sparks fantastic dialogue about participating in youth sports for the right reason. We have utilized Even Field at student conferences, coaching workshops and parent meetings and the feedback has always been positive, regardless of the audience.
Michael P. Lunney, Assistant Executive Director, Rhode Island Interscholastic League
I found Chuck’s message to be profound and especially relevant in today’s youth sports culture…Having coached at different levels from youth sports through college, I would highly recommend bringing Even Field in to speak with your players, coaches, and parents.
Billy Sittig, Recreation Program Manager, Boston (MA) Parks and Recreation Department
Chuck Wilson and the Even Field program are putting the emphasis back where it should be, on building character in young athletes.
Chris Capezzuto, Heads Up Football® Master Trainer & Head Football Coach Roosevelt H.S., Yonkers, N.Y.
Chuck Wilson and Even Field represent the very best in the quest to improve the youth sports experience for young people….(We) greatly respect the tremendous work that he has begun.
Phil Ricci, Administrator, Catholic Athletic League (RI)
These lessons that you’re teaching about teamwork, about dedication, about how you play on the field and how that translates to your home life, those are lessons that transform a community… To me, that’s the long-term impact you’re having… we can transform our entire society and what it truly means to win.
Dominic Copeland, Coach/VP, Beverly (MA) Youth Football
We are committed to utilizing the resources of Even Field and excited to partner with Chuck Wilson and his organization on pilot programs promoting sportsmanship and positive character development. We believe, along with Even Field, that it is not the results of the game that should be emphasized in middle school, but rather the way the game is played.
Michael Mancieri, Executive Director, Rhode Island Principals' Committee on Athletics
