Positive and Safe Sports (P.A.S.S.™) Initiative

Positive and Safe Sports (P.A.S.S.™) Initiative

As noted in our Get in the Game Section, Youth Sports is an essential element to keeping our kids healthy and fit and can help to form core life values and skills. Having our children participate in youth sports can help to strengthen their future and the future of our community. However, to achieve these goals and benefits our children must have a productive, positive and safe youth sports experience. 

Our mission is to ensure that every child, parent and coach are given the proper knowledge and tools to help them make the most of their experiences.

Our P.A.S.S. (Positive And Safe Sports) Initiaitve is designed to help parents, kids and coaches better remember how youth sports should be. We implement this into information via our website and through a variety of programs out in the community (Information Sections are located at the end of this page below or in the right column menu).

In this section you will find a number of sub-programs and information that helps us in our mission of a more positive and safe sports experience for our local youth.

Hearing and learning things just once is not enough. Many times bits of information can be missed, they can go in one ear and out the other or as time goes by we tend to forget the most basic of things. This information and the tools that accompany them need to be etched into the minds of everyone involved in youth sports. We want to make sure that there are constant reminders of this and our program that is based here locally, is designed to accomplish just that.

We are proud partners with: The Southern Nevada American Red Cross, ASSOM’s Stop Sports Injuries Campaign, The National Athletic Trainers Association, The National Alliance for Youth Sports, The CDC, The National Center for Sports Safety, The Youth Sports Safety Alliance and other numerous local and national organizations. We are always looking for new and unique programs and information to bring to our community.
