Why We Do What We Do:

Our philosophy at The LVSportz Foundation is that a positive youth sports experience can help to form a child's core life values at an early age which can help to pave the way for the future of our community. These core life values often impact our children's future success and our future as a community: Commitment, Discipline, Work Ethic, Teamwork, Time Management, Communication, Leadership and Physical Fitness are just eight of the many proven vital life skill areas that are the most important and significant impacts of youth sports participation. However, unless those core values are taught right, with the future of the child and the community in mind, their experience can result in the opposite effect.

Many benefits can be lost due to improper introduction and development. An increase in youth sports injuries and burnout due to early single sport specialization coupled with negative experiences due to overzealous parents and coaches is attributing to a 70% dropout rate of youth athletes by the time they reach high school. Our goal is to offer children and their parents an opportunity to experience different sports without risking the cost of lost money from registration and equipment fees if the child doesn’t like the sport or if the child may be interested in the sport but is fearful to make a commitment to a sport they may not understand.

Positive Youth sports can help to strengthen our community by bringing families together and positively impacts our local economy through a number of aspects.

 

Our Goals:

 

  • Inform & Educate our community on the role that a positive youth sports experience can play in the future of our childrens lives and our community;
  • Assist families struggling through financial difficulties so that every child who wishes to participate in sports is afforded that chance;
  • Assist youth athletes in attaining the proper safety equipment for their sport;
  • Ensure that important core values and life skills are taught in a safe and positive manner from coaches with the best interest of the child in mind before their own;
  • Recognize those athletes and coaches who excel not only on the field but off the field as well
  • Educate coaches, parents and youth athletes on the serious of youth sports injuries & how to prevent them;
  • Inform our community about local youth and community sports news, events and accomplishments

 

We have created several programs to help us in accomplishing our goals and we are constantly coming up with new and innovative ideas to Inform, Educate, & Assist our great community of Southern Nevada! We all need to come together for the betterment of our children and our community through Youth Sports!
