Since its beginning, Athletes in Action has had this vision: Christ followers on every team, in every sport and in every nation. AIA helps athletes and coaches grow in character and faith, and athletes active with AIA use the platform sports provides as a positive influence in local communities.

In the New York metropolitan area, there are active AIA groups on several college campuses. In addition, AIA staff members serve as chaplains and Bible study leaders for professional football, baseball and soccer teams.
