While we love to provide financial assistance, safety equipment, free sports physicals with heart screenings, free camps and clinics and much more to our local youth but the costs we incur are unfortunately not free. Without the graceful donations by people like you, a lot of what we do would not be possible!
We do not charge for any programs or information and we don't sell anything. We feel this takes away from our mission.
Please take time to donate just a few dollars so we can ensure that our local youth are afforded the chance to participate in a fun, positive and safe sports environment!
Any amount helps, whether it's $5, $10, $20 or $100!
Here's a breakdown of a few of the typical costs we incur:
$150 for youth sports registration assistance
$150 for necessary safety equipment like mouthpieces, pads, head protection and joint braces
$150 to fully certify a coach with a background check; CPR/AED/First Aid Training; Positive Coach Training; Sports Safety Training; and more...
$30 to train a coach in just CPR/AED/First Aid
$750 to perform 500 Baseline ImPACT Pre-Concussion Tests
$1,000-$5,000 to provide free sports physicals and heart screenings for student athletes
$1,500-$2,000 for an AED Kit for leagues and teams
$500 per youth sports safety clinic/seminar
$500-$2,500 per free youth sports camp or clinic for Underprivileged Youth & Foster kids
And so much more...
As you can see that can quickly add up when helping hundreds of kids or providing a dozen or so clinics every year! That doesn't even include the cost of marketing (letting parents know we're here) or the cost of thousands of materials we hand out on positive and safe youth sports...
